New Or Used Gulet?
 
Personal finances are often a key factor in the decision to buy a new or used Gulet. However, other factors should be considered.

After-sale service
The retail cost of a new boat includes the cost of providing warranty service. When a used Gulet is sold “as is,” the only thing that’s guaranteed is that the buyer will pay to fix any problem that crops up.

Financing
New and used Gulet are treated equally in terms of interest rates and down payments. However, expect some extra financing hurdles if you’re buying a boat over 15 years old or one that requires a lot of repairs.

Depreciation
Depreciation on new Gulets is at its highest during the first season of use. However, depreciation on a used Gulet kept in good condition should level out with proper maintenance and equipment improvements.

Beauty may be only skin deep
Cosmetic flaws caused by age and wear are hard to hide when a boat hasn’t been properly cared for, but structural defects and mechanical problems are harder to detect. Ask the owner’s mechanic for the repair history. Have the boat surveyed. Similarly, the owner of a new boat could also be testing uncharted waters. Dealers say an average of a dozen problems, both big and small, crop up on every new Gulet they sell.

If you're patient
The procedure of building Gulets today has changed very little over the centuries. The changes to the basic plank-on-frame method are superficial but significant: advanced tools now allow craftsman to design and deliver far more precision than they used to be able to by hand, and laminated epoxy materials allow for fantastic durability.
In Turkey it is possible to build steel or laminated hull Gulets up to 45 meters length, there are some shipyards that their establishment has approved its quality especially on building traditional Turkish type motor sailors. (Gulets). Depending on the Gulet size, the construction of a Gulet may take from 8 months to 24 months.
If you do not want to wait that long, there is always a used one to suite in to your expectations.
