Should You Buy a Used Inflatable Boat?

There are two types of used inflatable boats for sale ? those that have never been patched before, and those that have been repaired. Repaired boats are worked upon by factory technicians using the same glue and same techniques used for a new boat, and hence are as good as new ones. All the boats are tested for 24 hours before being advertised for sale.

Used inflatable boats are mostly sold at a discount. Used inflatable boats that have never been patched before sell between $219 and $1,049. Repaired boats sell between $764 and $2,024. The discount on these prices may be up to 20%. These boats vary from 8-foot to 14-foot long. Some boats are with motors, while others come without motors.

There is a wide selection of used inflatable boats in various classified advertisement websites on the Internet. It is fairly easy to place a boat for sale on these websites if the user has a photograph and details of the Used Inflatable Boat.

When selling used inflatable boats, the seller usually advertises the make and model. For example, a seller gives make and model data such as Sea Eagle 8H, Hurricane 24 ft. Aluminum RIB, Avon CRRC 450 etc.

The seller of used inflatable boats also gives the year, the hours that the boat has been used, the price and the location. For example, the Sea Eagle 8H mentioned above is a 2003 model, costs $450 and is in Florida. The Hurricane 24 ft. Aluminum RIB is a 1997 model that has been used for only 30 hours, costs $68,000, and is in Washington. The Avon CRRC 450 is a 1989 model, costs $1650, and is in Florida.

Often, the professional repair technician at the repair facility not only repairs boats, but also sells used inflatable boats. They purchase used inflatable boats that are in a repairable condition, and sell them after reconditioning. It is important to be healthily skeptical and use good, personal judgment while purchasing a Used Inflatable Boat either from a website or from a repair facility.
