The original and the best guide to buying a used power trailerboat, Secondhand Boat Secrets - Collector's Edition is a square back, premium quality, full colour publication containing a wealth of information about buying a used boat - information that will prove invaluable to novice and experienced boat buyers.
With the latest edition of Secondhand Boat Secrets, the author takes the reader right through the process of buying a used boat - commencing with an in depth discussion about the pros and cons of buying a used boat, and concluding with a comprehensive engine re-power chapter. In between there are chapters on powered cats and trihulls, alloy vs fibreglass, how to inspect the boat, motor and trailer, along with tips on how to avoid buying a “dog, lemon, or clunker”.
Complimenting the editorial based chapters are reviews on 70 of Australia’s best used trailerboats - including Webster’s pick of the all time top 10 classic trailerboats. Among this distinguished list are iconic craft like the Bertram 25 flybridge, Formula 233, Haines Hunter V19R, Savage Bluefin, SharkCat 23, and the Seafarer V-Sea 474.
Each of the boat reviews contains at least two colour photographs, tips and techniques for identifying different models, a price guide for each craft, and a time-line for when upgrades were made, or new models introduced. The detail contained within each boat review is exhaustive.
For this edition, some reviews have been dropped, and new reviews added. 10 of the 70 reviews are exclusive to this edition - and include boats from top brands like Allison, Haines Hunter, Quintrex, Mustang, Signature, Savage and more.
Buying a used boat is a tricky process, with plenty of traps and pitfalls for the inexperienced and unwary. If you’re thinking of buying a used boat, do yourself a favour and grab a copy of Secondhand Boat Secrets - Collector’s Edition.
