Buying a NEW BOAT for the FIRST TIME?? You NEED to WATCH THIS FIRST!! | Harbors Unknown Ep. 53

Today we have a different style of video for you. We sat down with friends of ours who are also first time new boat buyers. Tim + Kate McGinnis are on a Seawind 1260 and Dale is on the Seawind 1600 Passagemaker with his wife Katrina. We’re sharing our learnings from the entire new boat buying process from purchase, to build, where to take delivery, importing, commissioning and warranty phase. We’ve created this video from our own personal experiences to serve as a resource for first time new boat buyers. What we’re sharing isn’t rocket science but you don’t know what you don’t know or your expectation may be entirely different from reality. Now that the secondhand boat market is slim to none there will be a lot more people buying a new boat for the first time and we hope you’ll be able to learn a bit from our experience. If you're buying a new boat for the first time, this video is for you!

If you're new here, Harbors Unknown is the story of two dreamers, Kristin and Fabio Potenti, and our French Bulldog dog Yoda. We sold our home at the beginning of the pandemic (May 27th, 2020) and moved aboard our Seawind Catamarans boat, Wanderlust, in September, 2020. We're sailing her to Harbors Unknown, to explore the world’s vast cultures through food, a common thread amongst people everywhere. Connecting with people and places through the local cuisine, and showing how those dishes can be cooked on a boat with limited space and resources. We're sharing our adventures as a sailing couple living on a boat and how it’s possible to live an alternative lifestyle that provides freedom and fulfillment. We have set off on our voyage sailing around the world, after exploring the beautiful waters of South Florida, the Florida Keys, and the Bahamas. Subscribe now to join our sailing adventure.
