Successful Boat Buying

Presented by

Curtis Stokes & Associates, Sterling Finance and Yacht Surveyors, Inc.


Before you buy a boat for tens of thousands -- or hundreds of thousands of dollars -- doesn't it make sense to spend less than $100 to make sure the process goes smoothly?

 

Before you spend a lot of time, money and energy on buying a boat, make sure you have a detailed understanding of the steps to take (and the missteps to avoid). We'll walk you through it from beginning to end -- from dealing with a broker, to putting a boat under contract, to having the boat surveyed, financed, and insured -- our experts will share their secrets for making buying a boat painless.

 

Whether you're considering a boat for the Great Loop, a weekend cruiser for the family, or a blue water sailboat, this seminar offers inside knowledge into the business of buying a boat that will give you peace of mind throughout the process.


Registration fee is $99 per person. Each couple (or individual, if you are attending alone) receives a Captain Chris "Perfect Boat" training DVD and a free two-year membership in America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association valued at $140.

 
ON-LINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.  PLEASE CONTACT JANICE KROMER AT jkromer@greatloop.org or 843.879.5040 TO INQUIRE ABOUT AVAILABLE SPACE.

You will receive the free two-year membership automatically when when you register.

Great Loop Cruising: A Guide to the Looper Lifestyle

Ever wonder what it's really like to cruise America's Great Loop? Our seminar, "Great Loop Cruising: A Guide to the Looper Lifestyle" is for you!

Many of us have a Great Loop cruise on our bucket list. But few actually move beyond just dreaming of the Loop, to investigating whether and how to make it a reality. America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association is pleased to introduce this new one-day seminar designed to help answer the questions most people have about the Great Loop.

• How much time and money will it take?
• What kind of a boat do I need?
• How can I leave my home/kids/grandkids for an extended period of time?
• Will my spouse and I still like each other after spending so much time together?
• Is it safe?
• Will I see interesting things, or just cruise along at a turtle's pace for a whole year of my life?
• I like my lifestyle. Can my life on the water replicate what I have at home?
• We've never handled a large boat before. Why start now?
• How will I know what to do in an emergency when we're all alone on our boat?

If these are questions you (or your spouse) have pondered, this seminar is for you.

The registration fee is $99 per person. Each registered couple (or individual, if you're attending alone) receives a two-year AGLCA membership (a $140 value) and lunch.

 
ON-LINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.  PLEASE CONTACT JANICE KROMER AT jkromer@greatloop.org or 843.879.5040 TO INQUIRE ABOUT AVAILABLE SPACE.
