What should I consider to buy a boat?

For the lovers of sailing

Buying a boat is one of the most exciting experiences in the life of lovers of sailing, but it is always recommended to let ourselves be advised by professionals in the sector to guide us during the purchase procedure.

From Marina Estrella we want you to know the keys of the purchasing process.

Sailing program and available budget

Any future owner, before starting the search for his next boat, should consider the use he wants to give the boat and the approximate budget available. With these first two premises, the team of Marina Estrella can begin to advise you, offering you different alternatives so that you can analyze them. In Marina Estrella we have a great variety of new brand or brokerage boats in Spain, including Balearic or Canary Islands.

Home port

We must think about the base port where we will have our boat moored, or the facilities where we will winter it, and also what services the port has, the draft, the moorings available, the accessibility in private or public transport … And how we will organize the transfer of our boat from its current location to our home port.

Visit to the boats for sale

Marina Estrella will send you detailed information about the boats for sale that best suit your needs, and will provide you with information about your documentation, registration, situation and maintenance or work performed recently.

Boat Price

Once you select the boats that may interest you the most, and wish to make an offer for them, Marina Estrella will be responsible for negotiating on your behalf with the owner to try to reach a sale agreement.

Purchase contract

Once the buyer and the seller reach a price agreement through Marina Estrella, a sales contract will be signed with all the details of the ship, the sea trial or the expert, the agreed purchase price and the terms of payment.

Sea trial

After signing the agreement, it is recommended to perform a sea test, to check all the navigation systems, motorization, the behavior of the boat and that the boat has no defects that affect the correct use.


In the case of boats of a certain size, from Marina Estrella we always recommend hiring a professional surveyor who makes an in-depth assessment of the real state of the ship.

Once the sea trial or the expert appraisal has been completed satisfactorily, the payments will be completed and the ownership of the vessel will be changed. Depending on the current registration of the vessel and the nationality of the buyer, Marina Estrella will advise you regarding the procedure of change of ownership, registration changes, etc … In the case of vessels registered in Spain and acquired by a person residing in Spain , the procedure of change of property will include the presentation in the Capitania of the ID of buyer and seller, as well as documentation of the vessel and copies of the payments of the registration fees and taxes to execute the change of ownership.

From this moment the buyer will take care of the compulsory insurance of the boat, the mooring and the maintenance costs of the boat, and will start sailing and enjoy the sea with your boat.

If you are looking for a boat, let our team of professionals advise you and guide you through the whole process. Discover now the great portfolio of new and used boats that we have for you.
