Got one to sell?

Get it in front of 160+ million buyers.

If you have the need for speed out in the water, a new or used motorboat from eBay could be just the thing you’re after. Our sellers have hundreds of different vehicles available every day that can have you cruising in the sea or on a lake or river in no time.

What to consider when buying a boat for the first time

Here are some things to keep in mind when you are thinking about buying your first boat. First off, you need to decide how you want to use the boat. For example, sailboats serve a much different function than motorboats and other watercraft. Perhaps you want a tow boat for watersports activities. Or maybe you want a boat in which you can load up your fishing gear and head to your favourite spot to catch the big ones. You’ll also want to consider the size factor. If you want to get a big group of friends and family together, you’re going to want to investigate buying a bigger boat. You also want to make sure you have a vehicle and trailer that can tow your vessel if necessary. eBay sellers can help you achieve your dream of owning a boat that suits your needs and wants.

An introduction to boat hulls

One of the defining characteristics of a boat is its hull. This part of the watercraft is the body. It keeps you afloat and stands up to the beatings of waves. Hulls can be made up of a variety of different materials, each of which has its own set of pros and cons. Motorboats tend to have a single hull. That means they are considered monohull boats. Monohull boats generally operate in two ways. Displacement hulls are found on boats that are created for slower speeds but require less energy to operate. They displace water to stay afloat. On the other hand, planing hulls are found on boats that cruise faster. That is because when a motorboat hits high speeds, it actually planes across the top of the surface.  The above information can help guide you as you browse through thousands of different boating options provided by eBay’s strong stable of sellers. Check them out today and get ready to get out on the water.
