Potential boat buyers range from first time boat purchasers to experienced boat owners looking for a new vessel. For example, some recently qualified skippers are absolutely thrilled about buying their first boat, but they can feel inhibited by the short duration of the average trial trip, their own inexperience and the overall pressure that comes with making such a costly acquisition. KaterBlue will enable them to extensively test a certain vessel during a charter, have a skipper or skilled crew aboard (if requested) to make them feel in safe hands, and lower the stress of the entire process. Even for veteran skippers, or people who have bought and sold boats before, KaterBlue provides the ideal setting for a successful interaction that benefits both buyer and seller. We create a perfect setting for making the purchase of a lifetime. Instead of rushing into buying an expensive motor yacht or sailing yacht and finding out hidden defects after a week, users can easily look through hundreds of offers, selecting the boat they like most and taking it for an extended test run. By chartering for several hours, days or even weeks, potential buyers can not only get a good picture of the state of any vessel, but also discover which one fits their expectations and personal preferences most. Often the presence of the owner or skipper will show them how that particular boat handles, the best point of sail, the whereabouts of everything and thereby furthering their confidence. KaterBlue’s “charter plus buy” concept enables the buyer to make the most informed and balanced choice before engaging in what for many people could be the largest purchase of their lives.
