Luxury yacht sales are on the upswing. According to a New York Times article, the wealthy are starting to spend again. Now that the recession is waning, high bracket buyers are back on the prowl, looking for luxury goods to make their leisure time more enjoyable. Sales of extravagant power boats, decked out fishing boats, and luxury sailing yachts are slowly increasing as people regain faith in the economy.
Interestingly, much of the action in the luxury boat market is not in new boat sales but in the sale of pre-owned luxury boats. Even the rich, it seems, aren’t immune to the lure of a good bargain. Online boat sale sites like Boatline have experienced an increase in viewer traffic from discriminating boat buyers who don’t mind saving a few thousand dollars on a good deal. Many savvy boat buyers actually prefer to buy a boat that’s been gently used. They say buying a pre-owned boat saves them the trouble of “working out the kinks” on a new boat and allows them to start enjoying their boat from the very first day.
Boatline offers a wide selection of new and pre-owned boats at excellent prices. On Boatline you’ll find everything from ultra-luxury sailing yachts, high-powered power boats and fully-equipped fishing boats to family-priced houseboats, rubber dinghies and jet skis.
