If you live in New York City, then you know that there are marinas and boat launching sites in and around Manhattan and the five boroughs, as well as Long Island and other places to keep and launch boats. If you're here on an extended visit or are moving to New York City, you may not have known that, and are now wondering if it's possible to buy a boat.
You'll be happy to know there are several places that have boats for sale in and around New York City, and a few are listed below. You can purchase anything from a small sailboat to a large yacht. You can purchase new or used boats, depending on what you want.
There are two Long Island locations to serve you. one is at 44 Newtown Road, Hampton Bays, and the other is at 401 Montauk Highway, Westhampton Beach. Either location can help you find a boat or even a personal watercraft if that's what you're looking for.
The company has grown considerably from the small boat service business it started out as, but that doesn't mean they've forgotten their small business ways. Each customer is still given individual service, for a satisfying boat buying experience.
This boat dealership on Staten Island not only offers boats for sale, but also can help you purchase utility vehicles, such as ATVs and RTVs (recreational utility vehicles.) Picture a "glorified" golf cart with knobbier tires and the ability to haul small loads.
You'll have plenty of boats and personal watercraft to choose from. After you've picked out your water toy, you can pick out your land toy at the same place and the same time. This will be the perfect end to a perfect boat-buying expedition.
If you're interested in buying a yacht (small or large) this is the place to come. Atlantis Marina Boat Sales offers new boats for sale as well as "brokerage" boats for sale. A brokerage boat is one that an owner has given over for the Marina to affect the sale; after which, the owner and Marina will work out a price/commission agreement.
Having new and brokerage boats for sale means you have a wider selection of yachts to choose from. You should have no problem finding the one that fits your budget and personality.
Located in Brooklyn, this company has boats for sale as well as a full-service marina, including a restaurant on site. You can come out in the morning, browse around the boat sales lot, get some prices and information, and then peruse it over a nice lunch.
Afterward, you can go back out to Sea Travelers Boat Sales and "talk turkey" with the sales representative. Once you've bought your boat, you can then arrange for marina space to store it.
If you're in the market for a good used boat, All Seasons Marine Corp. can help you. The company has a number of used boats in inventory, including smaller fishing boats and large yachts, as well as a house barge. (Yep, that's exactly what it sounds like, a small house set on a floating barge).
Once you've found your boat, you can visit the boat store for the supplies and accessories you'll need to make your boating excursions more pleasurable. These include fuel, spare parts, biodegradable paper products and other items that you'll want to use while you're on the water.
