New vs Pre-Owned Boats

Spring is almost here and now's a great time to be thinking about boating season. If you're starting to get that itch and can't wait to hit the water, you're not alone! Buying a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks is an exciting task but one that should not be taken lightly. The first major decision is deciding where you should buy a new or pre-owned boat in mid-Missouri. Here at Iguana Boat Sales, we're here to help by comparing the two boat options below.


Personalize Features
When buying a new boat off the line, you can hand pick the features you'd like it to include. While these are typically additional charges, you will get all the amenities and features you desire in a vessel. Simply things like a specific color to a certain navigation system can be installed with your new boat.

First Operator
As a new boat owner, you have the satisfaction of knowing you are the only person to operate the boat. You get the break it in and have the first run on the water (besides any transportation or dealership test drives). There's something cool about being the first captain of a new boat!

Being fresh off the line means your new boat is flawless. From a pristine engine to a smooth paint and clearcoat, your new vessel will look sharp cruising down the lake! No stains on the carpet, tears in the upholstery, no chips out of the paint -- the boat will be flawless from bow to stern.

Warranty Options
A new boat will come with a number of warranty options. You can have peace of mind knowing that if something does go wrong with your boat, it will be covered. Whether it's a manufacturer warranty or one through the boat dealership, your new boat will be covered for needed repairs.


Lower Price Point
Used boats are usually much more affordable than a new boat. Even a boat that is only a few years old will be significantly less in cost than a new one. Save money on your boat purchase by investing in a gently used model.

Tested Vessel
Manufacturers do have mishaps and any issues that the boat may experience off the production line have typically been resolved by the time it is used. A used boat has been tested out and will usually have any needed repairs made.

Save on Depreciation
Depreciation is the amount an investment loses over time. Just like an automobile, the minute a new boat leaves the dealership, it's considered used and worth less. The first owner of a boat experiences a big hit of depreciation which allows you - a pre-owned boat buyer - the ability to save on that big depreciation on the boat.

Instant Gratification
When you buy a pre-owned boat, you are likely driving away with it that day or soon after. Unlike ordering a new boat and having to wait for it to be made, a used boat is usually ready for you to take ownership right away. You get instant gratification when you buy a used boat.

The great debate continues. Is it best to buy a pre-owned boat at the Lake of the Ozarks or a used one? In the end, it's really up to each person's preference, financial situation, and desired features in a boat to make the decision. There's no right or wrong answer and our Lake of the Ozarks boat dealership has both new and pre-owned options available to meet your boating needs! Stop by to check out our selection and gear up for another great summer on the Lake!

Thinking About Buying a Pontoon? Ask Yourself These Questions First

Spring is coming, and with the warm weather approaching at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may be in the market for a new or new-to-you boat.  If you are thinking about purchasing a pontoon boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, contact Iguana Boat Sales, your number one boat dealership in the Mid Missouri area.

What is a Pontoon Boat?  

A pontoon boat is a boat that relies on pontoons, or large floatation devices, to keep it floating.  This is a popular boat style for many boaters at the Lake of the Ozarks.  You may be thinking that price is the only consideration you need to take when in the market for a boat this season, but there are several other considerations to think about.  For example, what kind of boat you need for your purposes, whether you want to purchase a used boat, or whether you want to buy brand new. 

What Type of Pontoon Boat Do You Need?  

At Iguana Boat Sales, we have many makes and models of all different styles of boats.  However, if you have narrowed down your boat selection to a pontoon, start to think about what you will be using the boat for.  If you are wanting a party pontoon boat, you will need a pontoon with plenty of space and lots of seating.  If you are planning to use your pontoon boat for watersports, you will need to purchase one with speed.  If you plan to mainly use your pontoon for a fishing boat, you may want to consider purchasing one that includes plenty of storage for bait, tackle boxes, and other fishing equipment.  Don’t forget that any boat you purchase should include room for life preservers for your passengers and yourself!

Do You Plan on Purchasing New or Purchasing Used?

Once you have narrowed down the focus of how you will be using your pontoon, you can then weigh the benefits of purchasing a new boat or a new-to-you boat.  We carry both new and used boats of all kinds.  Contact our team of experts at Iguana Boat Sales, and we can assist you in this decision-making process.

What is Your Budget?

Of course, price is always a consideration to take in when making any large purchase.  Keep in mind that we can help you with boat financing and boat insurance.
