From: Doug Dawson, 5th Generation in the Boating Business and Author of  Buy a Boat with Confidence and Save Money

Dear Boater,

At the risk of you not reading to the bottom of this letter, I need to tell you that "Most boaters (new and experienced) don't know how to buy a boat." Afterall, being an expert boater and an expert boat-buyer are two entirely different things.

I've been in the boat business literally my whole life and have seen far too many boaters embarrass themselves buying the wrong boat or paying way too much for it. (Or both!)

This is why I've decided to turn the tables and share my lifetime of boat buying and boat selling know-how so that you are armed with the know-how to buy the very best boat you can for the very best price.

"In Fact, You WILL Learn At Least One Thing That Is Way More Valuable Than The Price Of This Book In 30 Days, Or I'll Refund Every Penny You Paid And Even Let You Keep 4 Valuable Bonuses Just For Checking It Out— Guaranteed!"

Hear The Experience Of Just A Few Who Have Saved So Much...

"I wish we had this book 35 years ago when I bought my first cruiser. I could have avoided several pitfalls in the process. A must read for every first time or subsequent boat buyer."

—George & Sheilah van Nostrand

 

"With the help of your book, we have a tentative deal on the Egg Harbor. Our offer was accepted last week. The deal is contingent on a survey to be conducted next Wednesday and a sea trial some time when the weather breaks. We added financial approval as a condition as suggested in your book.


I appreciate your interest... and if this works out I'll take you up on your offer of any historical information you may have on this boat. If it becomes ours, I'll want to learn everything I can about it. I'm "reading up" now in preparation next week's survey. You can bet I'll be there for every minute of it."

-- Mark, OH

 

"In an industry where there are too many self proclaimed experts, Doug is truly the consummate professional. His incredible depth of industry knowledge... has been a wonderful resource for me. He is a man with great personal integrity and I am proud to consider him a ... valued business associate."

-- George H.E. Ward
Ward Yachts, Toronto, ON

 

"Just to let you know that I am now the owner of a Mirage 25 and the purchase went very well. We still have to confirm with sea trials but the surveyor said the boat was in better than average condition and well cared for and with newer motor and sails there shouldn't be any surprises. Thanks for all your advice."

—Paul, ON

 

"I thank you once again, for a truly wonderful source of information for a 1st time buyer like myself and my wife. When I first talked to Doug about purchasing "Buy a Boat With Confidence, and the extra bonus package, I thought it was a bit steep. But, after reading only 30 or so pages, I realized that you have already saved me a lot more money than I ever could have imagined.

 

Ironically, I did all the items mentioned by you guys not to do, as running to closest marina etc, and I am so glad I purchased this gem of a book. I really don't know how to thank you enough. It's as though you knew what I have been doing for the last 3 weeks or so.....all the wrong aproaches.

 

Thanks again for a gold mine of knowledge on how to, and especially, what kind of boat to purchase."

—Keith Swartman, Ottawa, ON

 

"Doug Dawson is a credit to the marine industry."

—Chris Goulder
President, Volvo Penta

 People Have Paid $100's For This Advice

Frankly, I thought long and hard about selling this invaluable information as part of a high-priced seminar or personal consultation where I charged at least $395 per person. And people would get many times that amount back in savings and enjoyment. But, I decided to put all my advice down in book format because I wanted as many boaters as possible to benefit from my knowledge.

And If That Wasn't Enough...
Buy Today And Get These Extra Bonuses...Worth $100 FREE!

Needless to say, this information is jam packed with the jealously guarded secrets to buying a boat. Truth is, you'll never find this in-depth information in any other book or manual. But even with that said, I want to make absolutely sure that you have everything you need to get the most out of your Boat purchase. If you buy today, you'll also receive these 4 special bonuses—gifts which are in fact worth more than 3 times the price of the book!

Bonus #4: Take a Demo Like a Pro

Far too many boat buyers don't even take the boat for a test drive before purchasing. The ones that do, don't know the tricks. Doug taps into his decades of doing boat tests for national magazines to teach you how to "Demo It Like A Pro".

This Special Report reveals the secret techniques that salespeople use to make a boat demo the most favorable to them. With this information you can get a revealing test drive of the boat!
Value of $25.

inspect-yourself.jpg

Bonus #3: Inspect It Yourself To Save Money

I can't tell you how many times I've seen experienced boaters miss important (and expensive!) details when checking out a boat. Their experience isn't inspecting boats for a living--mine is. I've created a thorough step-by-step procedure to help you eliminate boats from your short list. One technique I'll show you here has saved people thousands of dollars when it came time to negotiate price.

Salespeople only tell you what's right about a boat. With this special report, you can tell what's wrong with it.
Value of $25.

decode-hin.jpg

Bonus #2: Decode The Boat Buying Secrets Embedded in the HIN

Protect yourself! By decoding the HIN of a boat (something most insiders can't do, by the way) you can make sure you're buying what you think you're buying. As one example of how you'll protect yourself, I'll show you how to make sure you're not buying a boat that's older than you've been told--something I've seen happen many times.
Value of $25.

activities-and-types.jpg

Bonus #1: Hot To Know Which Boat Is Right For Your Kind of Boating Activity

How many types of boats can you think of right now? Seriously! This report has over 70 types of boats. Okay, on this you'll know more than most industry insiders!! I wrote this report because most people don't have a clue how to match boat types to their boating activities.

You can now cross reference the activities you're planning with the different boat types. This is a key step in the boat buying process and gives you a "short list" to work with.

Each boat type has a complete description of boat, its features and benefits, price ranges for new and used and much more.

This is THE MOST COMPLETE LISTING IN THE WORLD. 
Value of $25.

Together, these 4 free bonuses are worth more than triple the price of the book itself!

My wife and I just returned from the New York Boat Show. We went there fully armed with your Buy With Confidence Book and Reports.
Before going to the show we decided not to go for anything larger than 25 feet -- again with the help of your book -- therefore we eliminated the 27 foot we were looking at. We also looked at another new 25 footer before the show and eliminated that too...the new design really ruins the cockpit as far as we're concerned, and the entry into the mid/aft cabin is now so tight only a child can get in there as far as we're concerned.
Anyway, it took us 1.5 days to go through all the other 25' Express Cruisers at the show. We short-listed down to four 25'ers.
After getting initial price markers, we decided it was worth the extra money (approx. $10K) to go with the top quality boats.
Then we got down to brass tacks between the last two. We really liked both boats, and each had some nice, unique features/benefits the other did not have. We didn't have time to go through every point in your Inspect It Yourself Report in check-off list fashion, but we did keep as many items in mind as possible when looking at the boats.
We were down to the wire deciding between the two. Then we remembered one of your key points about going through the windshield pass through, onto the foredeck, and walking over to the bow cleats and anchor. And that's when we discovered a fatal flaw in our choice #1. Just forward of the pass through is a really nice foam cushion. Great for sunbathing but not a great non-skid surface to walk upon. On each side of the cushion was a sloping, triangular shaped piece of Plexiglas surrounded by smooth fibreglass. Again, a great feature for adding light to the cabin but again, no safe place to walk. Overall, the foredeck slanted down towards the bow rather steeply. Just sitting stationary at the boat show, we felt totally unsafe walking around the bow. We could only imagine what it would be like trying to get up there on a rough, windy, wet day! The salesman -- in this case the owner of the dealership -- tried to convince us that this was not important. He said we could get by docking by using the midships and aft cleats, and then tie onto the bow cleat from the dock. Ha! (And what about anchoring???) He also pointed out the 2" wide non skid "walkway" underneath the bow rails. (A toddler just might be able to walk along this, carefully placing one foot directly ahead of the other foot...) If we had purchased this boat, an otherwise fantastic boat, we would have found out very quickly that we had made a major mistake!
We went back to look at choice #2 and its foredeck was completely non-skid, much less steep, with easy and safe access to the entire bow area. So we bought it and we are very pleased with our decision.
But if it had not been for your expert guidance, we likely would have opted for choice #1 and this would have been a major error for us! So many thanks for the assistance. The money we paid for your book and reports was a very wise investment!
So now we want to go ahead and order your wife's book, I think it's titled "First Mate 101." Please send me ordering instructions."

Irwin D. Nathanson, New York

 

I bought your books and used them, I learned a lot. I did all the steps as you said, even the trial sail.

Everything went well, but it all took a long time. I rented a slip where I live, got insurance, borrowed from the credit union, paid 50% cash, and everything went well. Had a professional Marine Surveyor --very good man. I thank you for your knowledge and advice.

Jim, SC

 

"Thank you for the e-lesson on boat tying. I have printed it off for reading and re-reading. I enjoyed Doug's talk about tips on buying a boat at the seminar in Port Credit.
My secret is that I'm actually at the stage just now where I'm both buying a new sailboat and selling (trying to) my present sailboat. With any luck over the next few months, I'll experience the two greatest thrills on a boater's life: the day he buys his boat and the day he sells his boat! I bet you've heard those lines before.
Getting Doug's tips on buying, therefore, had a double value for me."
