Getting Started

Step 1.

If you need help narrowing down which boat is right for you or if you just want advice from other boat owners begin by posting on our Facebook group.

Here you can request any information that you think would be helpful in narrowing down your purchasing decision. For example, general information and recommendations for boats of a certain type or information on and experiences with specific boat models.

After posting your request, our members will be happy to share their knowledge and experiences with you to help you to make an informed buying decision.

Step 2.

Once you have narrowed your interest to a specific model and identified a boat of interest, you can arrange to have one of our inspectors gather more information and get detailed first hand reports about that specific vessel. To do this you simply fill out a request for information right here on our website!

Boat ownership is an experience that will take you outdoors, bring together family and friends, and creates lasting memories.

On the other hand purchasing a boat can be very frustrating and overwhelming, driving around to look at what seemed to be a nice boat only to find that it is not what was advertised. In many cases the photos you saw were years ago or the mechanical condition is far from needing a little TLC.

At Boat Hound we take the guesswork out by providing specific, firsthand knowledge of a particular boat you may be looking at. Through our Network of Marine industry professionals we can provide a history or current status of a vessel you may be considering to purchase. Our goal is to streamline the buying experience with education and knowledge so you end up with the right boat at the right price.

Let us be your eyes and ears on the ground, whether it’s in your town or across the nation we will sniff out the details before you make a costly mistake. We offer free resources and affordable inspections at multiple levels to help you make an informed buying decision. As the saying goes “buyer beware”, so let us be the smart first step in buying a boat.
