Thinking about buying your first boat? Here’s what you need to know

Even though it’s technically not summer yet, you would think it already is with this heat wave we’ve been having in the Cape Fear. And if this any indication of what the actual summer is going to be like, we’re in for a doozy here.

So maybe you’ve been thinking about buying a boat for years but just haven’t bitten the bullet yet. With the temperatures we’ve seen so far, we’d say this summer would be a perfect one to spend out on the water.

Don’t know where to begin with buying your first boat? Have no fear. The guys at Marine Warehouse Center have got you covered.

Marine Warehouse Center Vice President, Emmet Stovall recommends the DLV series from Carolina Skiff as the perfect starter boat.

“Easy boat to clean, easy boat to drive, very family friendly,” Stovall said. “Also good for fishing, skiing, tubing, whatever you’d like to do out on the water.”

Ease of use is one of the best things about the boat according to Stovall.

It’s easy to get in and out of the water and not super heavy to tow. It’s also easy to drive in and around docks.

Also a plus to the Carolina Skiff, in comparison to a lot of other boats on the market it’s one of the most affordable boats.

It also has plenty of storage.

“It comes with a cooler, you can stack beach chairs, surf boards, fishing rods,” Stovall said. “When you’re putting family and friends on the boat, the rear pop up seats really do a good job of holding everybody comfortably.”

When you buy the boat from Marine Warehouse Center you get complete service for all your boating needs.

“We do service, we have retail sales, we have trailers, we have engines, we have oil filters, life jackets, we have everything  that you could possibly need for your day out on the water and you don’t have to go to three different stores to find it. It’s all right here.”
