Obviously its free so its not cost to you Say for example you get a free boat with a trailer. If you don't end up wanting the boat anymore and cant get someone else to take it off your hands for free, wouldn't it end up costing you money to dispose of it? I assume size matters, so lets say a powerboat under 20 feet. I know the boats are old but people wouldn't just be giving them away free if the alternative was a costly disposal would they? I would never even look at a free boat. To get a free boat running would cost you way more than you think.

I got a free boat off Craigslist last spring. ed and inquired. She said it hadn't been in the water in over 5 years. Went to look at it and it was a mess. Not sure it had been wrapped during that time period and have leaves that had essentially composted.

Went to pick it up a few days later and she told me her husband was ill, they had sold the house, and needed the boat gone. She wouldn't take my money.

I hauled it away Easter morning. Shop vac, power washing, and some bleach and it looked great! Mechanic did some work to it but I got it running last summer. About to put it back in. She had the title to the boat, but no title to the trailer as it was a transferable registration which she had also lost. In NY, you can use a ed affidavit from a police officer and notice of sale for non-titled vehicle to transfer ownership. Both transferred to my name that week. She also had all the original cushions and canvas.

I had the cushions re-done by my mother over the winter. Yes, there are definitely free boat scams on Craigslist, but they're not all scams. If its too good to be true it probably is. But there are also gems out there. Update: I contacted the guy, he said it had a cracked engine. To be fair it came with what seemed like a 'good' working trailer he was giving away for free but yea Even if I looked at it in person I probably wouldn't have known it had a cracked engine without him telling me.

I don't want to sound like one of those choosing beggars, but I passed on it for obvious reasons You are correct Craigslist free boats disposing a boat cost you money, the amount depending on the size and material. Sometimes it's engine has an issue and it looks like crap which makes it near impossible to actually sell, people get so frustrated with the situation they find themselfs in they rather hand it out for free and be done with it, while in hindsight a good and thorough scrub and minor work on the engine and it turns out great.

Mind you that that is a very rare occasion.

Iv'e heard people say: the most expensive boats are free boats. I got a boat off Craigslist for Free once. The only way to look at a 'free' boat is as a BSO. You're not getting a boat, you're getting a pile of parts and a project to turn them into a boat.

Be prepared to spend several thousand. Most of which is my fault, sure. Posted by 2 years ago.

Sort by: best. One of the many problems is they never have titles. It didnt have a title and was listed as salvaged. Good on you. More posts from the boating community.
