Used Boat Sales Are Going UP!
Posted on 13th August 2020 at 15:17
The boat market is HOT! If you're looking to sell, now is the best time!
There’s an old joke about a boat that broke down: one day, the boat’s engine seized, and wouldn't start or run at all. The owner, frantic to get the boat fixed for his upcoming family vacation, calls around and finally gets a mechanic on the phone and requests him to fix it. When the mechanic shows up, he inspects the engine thoroughly, goes back to his tool bag and procures a tiny hammer. He proceeds to gently strike the motor once with the hammer, and VROOM! The motor starts up and runs like a champ.
A couple days later, the owner gets a bill from the mechanic to the tune of $1000! Dismayed at the high bill, he calls the mechanic and demands an itemized bill, as there was no way that a simple strike of the hammer could cost so much! Happy to oblige, the mechanic sends him the itemized bill, and this is what it reads:
Knowing where to strike with hammer_____________________________________________________________________________$998”
If there is one thing that Amzim Marine knows, it is boats and all their component systems. Right on our pamphlet, we put a quote from one of our loyal customers: “If it exists on a boat, Amzim can diagnose, repair, or replace it.” Our goal has always been to be like the aforementioned Mechanic. We’re proud to say that every day, our knowledge and expertise with the maintenance and servicing of our customer’s boats grows larger and larger. We’re not just an Authorized Formula Service Center: we’re a Platinum Mercury Dealership and Service Center, a Power Pole Dealer, and our sister company (Naples Canvas & Upholstery) are dealers for several marine fabric and upholstery brands like Sunbrella and Spradling Vinyl. Between our two companies, we’ve taken on jobs repowering a Gheenoe and making seat covers for sunpads, to refurbishing windlass winches on a 110 ft SunSeeker and reupholstering a hotel in Marco Island. We couldn’t be more proud of our accomplishments in just 8 short years!
We’re well known in our community for our prowess in being like the Mechanic above, but one of the things that few people know about is our Brokerage business. Some of our loyal customers have entrusted us with their boat’s continued operation for the better part of a decade (and in some cases, even stretching back to 2 decades). When it comes time to part ways with their boats, who is better equipped to sell them? A salesman with slicked back hair and a fancy suit, or the team that to replaced the manifolds or changed the oil? Between our fully certified mercury technicians, our sales specialist, and our on-staff captain, Amzim Marine can confidently speak to your boat’s quality and value.
On top of all that, the market is hotter than it has ever been. The combination of a global pandemic and the restrictions that it entails, people want to get out of their house in any way they can. And what better way to get out and in the sun while staying socially distanced than being on a boat? Ask any marine dealer; boats are selling faster and in greater quantities than any time in recent memory. If you’re not getting the use out of your boat that you used to, or you’re in need of a newer boat, we can make the process of selling your boat as painless as possible! So give us a call today, and we can get the process started!
