We bought a budget sailboat, after seeing it on the hard only. We wanted to share some of the basic tips that we found useful when entering into the very overwhelming and confusing world of buying a second hand boat. We knew nothing about boat buying or boats in general, so did a lot of research beforehand. Some of the sources we used can be found below.
Filmed in October just after Talisman (our 28ft boat) was hauled out for some winter work.
