What are consignment boats?
Buy a new boat from us and leave your used boat for us to sell as a consignment. Why consignment? We are not always able to offer as aggressive a price for a used boat trade-in as you might get outside the Nantahala Gorge. So we offer a compromise: Your boat is displayed on our front porch, you are free to advertise that it is there, and when it is purchased you get 100% of the price (meaning we take no commission).
Where to advertise if you have a boat for sale?
- Boatertalks’ gearswap page
- your local club’s newsletter or forum
A word about used boats:
Used boats are a great way to get into the sport spending fewer $$. But a note or two of caution: you are getting what you pay for, so don’t go too used or too out-of-date because you will more trouble reselling that boat when it is time for you to upgrade.
Used boats do not come with warranties. No one buys a boat with the expectation that they will break (plastic is an amazing compound). But if a used boat breaks–whether the first time out or down the line, the original warranty does not go with the boat once it changes hands.
