comes to buying a narrowboat there are many considerations you need to be aware
So let's look at some of these now and discuss these points before you buy;
boat best suits your needs?
basically three stern types you can choose from. The traditional, the semi
traditional and the cruiser.
No stern type is better than the others, it's all about
personal choice when choosing which style. If you are wanting more interior
space then the traditional style may best suit your needs better, as they tend to have larger interiors. If you want a larger social area when cruising for friends and family to gather, then the cruiser stern will be the better boat for you.
Stepping aboard all the different stern types will help you get feel of the boat and work out which one is going to be best for your needs. This is something we strongly encourage at our marina, you will be able to experience all the different sterns from the stock we have. You can hop on and off each boat as many times as you like, comparing each one at your leisure.
you moor your narrowboat?
look finding a mooring, this should be sorted out at the beginning of the buying
process so that you have somewhere to take your boat after it's purchase.
Extensive mooring advice from the Canal and River Trust can be found here.
time will you spend aboard?
important to consider how much time you will be spending on your boat. If you
intend to spend long periods of time or even live aboard full time, then you
need to factor in how much space you have for possessions and your family.
have a survey?
that simple, but we will explain why you should. The survey is for the buyers
benefit, it will highlight any potential problems, you can then negotiate with
the seller to see if they are prepared to pay for the repairs or lower the
asking price. More about surveys can be found here
options are available?
There are marine
mortgages available from 3000 plus and 70% of the boats value. Many people also approach their bank for personal loans for smaller amounts.
How much do
you want to spend?
your budget before you start looking. It's so easy to get carried away when you
arrive at the marina and see all the boats on offer. Remember there are ongoing costs such as mooring fees, insurance, repairs and maintenance etc, so don't leave yourself short.
