What should I pay attention to? A number of considerations.
  • Orient the usual price for the boat.
  • Check the chassis, the overrun brake, the (stabilizer) clutch, the output supports, the crash bar and the tires, the interior and the electrical connections and equipment.
  • Ask for the manuals and guarantees of, among others, the built-in appliances such as refrigerator, stove and the like.

Tips for the private seller

What should I pay attention to? A number of considerations.
  • Determine the asking price. Compare with a similar boat, look in Botentekoop or on camperscaravans.nl, call the dealer, importer or builder, check whether your brand and type of boat is in the market. For fast sales it is of course wise to sell below the current price.
  • Determine negotiation margin. Remember that the buyer comes from what your bottom price will be. Stay open to reasonable argumentation. There are many individuals who estimate the price of their boat too high. There are also often more risks for the buyer, who wants to take the buyer if the price is lower than at a company.
  • Good description. You should highlight matters that justify the value of your boat compared to a comparable boat. For instance; new, new upholstery, many accessories, few kilometers, etc. These details make it clear to the buyer why your boat is more expensive or expensive than another.
  • Clear photo. It is best when you are standing in the sun and you are photographing the boat from the position with your back to the sun. A beautiful photo in the boat's holiday also appeals to the imagination for the buyer.
  • Also show on the boat that she is for sale.
  • Be honest about the state of the boat and other information, otherwise you will waste the time of the buyer and yours.
  • Make a note of the buyer's phone number who wants to come along, this will lead the buyer to clean up earlier if he / she refrains from the visit.
  • Make sure your boat is clean and tidy when the buyer is looking.
  • If you can hand over a recent expertise report this can simplify the purchase
  • Set up a sales contract. Record on paper that you sell the boat, to whom you sell it, for what amount and when the boat is delivered. State brand, type, year of manufacture, chassis and engine numbers and any accessories. Have the money transferred by bank transfer or sign for receipt upon cash transfer. Sign both the agreement with indication of place and date.
