The marine engineers
The marine engineers underpins the boating industry. Designing, building and repairing all types of boats from small recreational models to large marine and naval vessels as well as offshore platforms and deep sea drilling equipment. All boats from small sailboats, luxury cruisers and fishing boats to aircraft carriers, commercial fishing boats and naval frigates. In many respects, a single source of boat building and maintenance expertise.
With the highest respect for the profession of marine engineers, we’re putting our own take on the area by providing a one-stop online source of information for boat owners and those that are looking to become boat owners. A source of information on engineering a boat build, a purchase and most importantly, engineering a great marine finance deal. Primarily, we’re focussing on the recreational boating and commercial marine sectors.
After deciding whether you want a sail or power boat, the next decision you need to make when planning to buy a boat is whether you want to buy a brand new or a used boat. Then it’s a matter of deciding where or to buy from. There are a number of options which we explore and explain.
The term ‘boat building’ is traditionally associated with wooden boats. But while there are artisans who maintain the traditional skills and craftsmanship of classic wooden boat building, contemporary boat building has evolved into a high tech process involving the latest developments in materials and techniques. When ordering a new boat, many buyers have the opportunity to get involved with the build, working with the marine engineers to personally select many of the fixtures and finishes and customise aspects such as berth configuration and deck layout to suit their boating lifestyle.
BOAT FINANCE CALCULATOR
Before proceeding to discuss the construction of your new boat with a marine engineer or boat builder or before negotiating the purchase of an existing vessel with a seller, it can be very helpful to have some idea of your projected finance commitments. A boat finance calculator is useful tool for that purpose. We explain how they work. READ MORE
A boat is a major asset and keeping it in good working order is not only best practice but can be critical when it comes to the safety of yourself, your passengers and your crew. Attending to routine servicing and maintenance, preferably by a qualified marine engineer, electrical engineer, service technician and/or shipwright is an essential part of owning a boat.
