Marine Rescue NSW estimates that by 2026 there will be over 334,000 registered vessels on NSW waterways, drastically higher than the 213,000 recorded in 2011. The popularity and affordability of boating is on the rise, and with little wonder, as boating is, quite simply… fun. Boating is associated with various other enjoyable pastimes such as fishing, swimming, camping and water sports like skiing and wake boarding, so the possibilities for your new boat are almost endless.
If you’re looking to join the boating community and start making the kind of family memories that last a lifetime, you will want to start with buying a boat that is perfect for your own needs. Buying your first boat may seem a little daunting, but it doesn’t need to be. Answering some simple questions can help make the decision that much easier by narrowing the options to suit your personal requirements.
Questions to consider:
- What activities do I want to do with the boat? Think about things such as whether you will go fishing, water skiing or on overnight cruises.
- Where will I go boating?
- How many people will the boat need to carry regularly? Did you know that children under 12 are counted as half an adult when determining a boat’s capacity?
- Will we go offshore?
- Where will the boat be stored?
- What is my budget?
