Cheap sailing boats in Ibiza are an ideal option because it allows you, for very little, to enjoy the nature that gives you a unique space as is this Balearic island.

When is the best time to buy a sailboat?

Believe it or not, there is a time of year to buy a cheaper boat. The first months of winter, especially February, are usually the time when sailing boats are cheaper.

The reason for this drop in prices is that the summer season seems very distant and, around this time, new models tend to emerge, hence the fall in prices last season.

In Amoyachts we have more than 30 years of experience in the industry and we specialize in the purchase, sale and rental of all types of boats so you can enjoy all the benefits of the sea for very little.

What to take into account when buying a cheap sailboat?

The purchase of a sailboat, whether new or second-hand, is something that excites everyone. Even so, it is necessary to analyze a few points before taking the step:

  • You can’t spend more than you have. No matter how much you fall in love with a sailboat, you must adjust to your budget.
  • Degree. Unlike charter boats, which can count on the presence of a skipper, if you buy a cheap sailboat you need to have the necessary qualifications to sail with it.
  • Revision. It is essential to buy a boat that is in good condition. For that reason, the most advisable thing is that you hire a naval expert or buy your cheap sailboat in companies like Amoyachts because we guarantee you the good state of our ships.
  • The most important thing. The fundamental elements of the boat are the hull, the deck, the engine, the pole and the standing rigging. If any of these components is in bad condition you should desist from buying them, it could cost more to repair than the boat itself.
  • Small imperfections. Details such as hoses or clamps are elements that, although small, should never be overlooked.

Common sense questions to ask yourself

There are a number of issues you need to analyze before buying a second-hand sailboat. These aspects do not have to do with the technical revision of the same one, but with its state:

  • Does it look good?
  • Does it work well?
  • Does it look like it needed maintenance?
  • Are the objects on the boat of good or bad quality?
  • Is the owner willing to help or has he had any problems before examining all the details of the boat?

The best way to answer these questions is to acquire some knowledge about the yachts, such as the elements that make them up and how they work.
