LAKE FOREST, Ill. – boats.com, Inc. has introduced a new national boat survey service in partnership with Davis & Co. designed specifically for used boat buyers, the company reported in a statement today.
This new service is available to users of the boats.com Internet site at the following Web page: www.boats.com/boat-survey.
In addition to a complete condition and value survey, the service provides a potential used boat owner with a detailed description in the survey report of how the value of the boat was determined. In addition, if the survey finds the boat did not conform to a particular standard or regulation then that standard or regulation is cited in the report, according to boats.com.
“The Internet has transformed the pre-owned boat market into a national market instead of a number of regional markets. This is especially true for by-owner boat sales and dealer pre-owned sales,” said Paul Rabe, president, CEO and co-founder, boats.com, Inc. “Using boats.com, a buyer looking for a pre-owned boat can locate their perfect boat in just a few minutes. With our new boatsurvey program, in partnership with Davis & Company, we give a potential owner the ability to have a boat surveyed anywhere in the country by one company and receive a limited warranty.”
