When you live in the Seattle area, it’s natural to be on the water as much as possible. Our boats can be like our second homes, and our watercraft are especially important to take care of as they are well-loved – and expensive – investments. For the best boat appraisals Seattle can offer, give us a call.
A boat appraisal can give you a lot of helpful information about your boat. A thorough going-over of your boat by a certified and trained appraiser can reveal information about the condition of your boat that you may not have been aware of. It also provides you with a reliable, independent valuation of the boat.
With an appraisal, you can get the right insurance policy for your boat. You can find the policy that covers your boat for the full value of the boat, not just what an insurance appraiser inexperienced at evaluating boats, their restoration or customizations, says it is worth on the market.
If you’re looking to purchase a boat, having a pre-purchase inspection done can be critical. You don’t want to purchase a boat that has been in an accident and is not worth the amount the seller is asking. You can find out about cosmetic or mechanical problems with the boat before you purchase it. This will help save you money and headaches down the road.
A pre-purchase inspection is also helpful if you live too far away from the vehicle to come and do an inspection of it yourself. You can rely on the expertise of the appraiser to document the condition of the boat thoroughly. If you don’t have the knowledge to do a complete inspection yourself, it also makes sense to rely on an experienced boat appraiser.
A boat appraisal can also come in handy in other situations. For example, if you’re going through a divorce, estate settlement, financial audit, or other situation where the value of the boat needs to be known, an independent appraisal can be extremely helpful or necessary.
The appraisals don’t represent the opinion of just the appraiser. They are market-researched documents with dozens of photos and detailed notes. Using our extensive database of comparable sales, appraisers can accurately identify the value of your boat.
