Frequently Asked Questions

I'm interested in one of your pre-owned boats, can I have a sea trial on it?

Yes, once a deposit and offer have been submitted and accepted, the next step is to have sea trial.  Port of Egypt will have the boat launched and ready for a demo ride. 

Can I trade my boat in?

Yes, we do consider trade boats toward new boats and some pre-owned boats.  When a boat is brokered (meaning we don't own it), we can not take a trade against that boat. 

Is there financing available for new and pre-owned boats?

Yes, both new and used boats can be financed.  The rate and duration of the loan vary from buyer to buyer based on credit, amount borrowed, and model year of the boat.  But usually you can finance a boat for up to 20 years and you need to put at least 10% - 20% down

Who pays to have a survey report completed, the buyer or the seller?

It is our policy on privately owned pre-owned boats  that the buyer pays for the survey to be completed.  Our trade boats are already surveyed by us.

Who do you recommend for insurance coverage?

Port of Egypt recommends Doug Cabral at JSM Brokerage for boat insurance.  His rates are competitive and the coverage is great.  Give him a call at (631) 765-2777 for a quote.

Will someone at Port of Egypt show me how to use my boat?

A delivery demo is included with every boat sale.  We will show you how the systems work on your boat and spend time giving docking lessons until you are comfortable doing it on your own.  We feel that this demo is a highlight of the boat buying experience at Port of Egypt Marine.

I would like Port of Egypt to broker my boat, what should I do?

We would be happy sell your boat for you.  First thing you need to do is bring your boat out to us.  Then we will take pictures of it and put a listing up on our website, yachtworld.com, boattrader.com  and boats.com.  It is the sellers responsibility to have the boat water ready.  We take a 10% commission on all brokered boats.
