100-point boat inspection

Surprises are great, but not when it comes to buying a boat! Boateka only chooses the best boats to be part of our brand. In fact, we only choose to refurbish and sell the best pre-owned boats that are available on the market. For the boats that make the cut, each one goes through a thorough 100-point inspection process. This process is designed specifically to ensure that each boat is of the highest quality when it’s delivered to you. On average, our specialized team members spend 20+ hours on each boat - testing, cleaning, and refurbishing - before it gets the Boateka seal of approval and is posted to the website. We believe in our refurbishment process so much that we offer a 90-day limited warranty alongside it, to ensure that you are 100% confident in your purchase from Boateka. 

Any major cosmetic issues that our team members aren’t able to completely repair will be outlined on the inspection report. A sample inspection report can be viewed at the following:
