Boat testing, Boat buying, Information

When attending GRABNER Boat testing events, can I test all type of accessories too?

Unfortunately, for reasons of the extremely large palette of accessories on offer and limited transport capacity, that is not possible.

You can check online, which boats can be tested at the different tests.

What is the best time for buying a boat?

The best time is during the pre-season! Many advantages speak for themselves:

  • Sufficient time for written  enquiries – reply
  • Sufficient time for detailed personal and telephonic consultation
  • Sufficient time for try, purchase, trials
  • Sufficient time for factory attended  mounting of fittings
  • Sufficient time for repair at low cost rates (without express-surcharges)
  • Sufficient time for spare part production to suit older models
  • All products are available for prompt delivery. You get what you desired, no substitute!
  • No surcharges  for express delivery
  • It is obvious, that during high season when many people wish to have everything within shortest delivery, something may be amiss.

Why is it that credit card, eps or cash with order is conditional for mail-order purchase?

You purchase at more favourable condition for reason that there is no reason for calculating for a risk on payment default.

Major mail-order companies calculate 3% for payment default, which in the end is to be paid by all buyers.

Apart from website-pages and the GRABNER catalogue, are there sources for additional information on the particular boat one has in mind?

There is no information with even more details available than the GRABNER catalogue and website-pages.

You may in addition though download and study the operating manual from the GRABNER homepage, for each boat.   

But do not let that put you off, for the manual explains everything very detailed to a point, where it appears more complicated, than what in reality it is.

Far more informative than pages of explanations is to watch the desired product function in practice, or oven to try it out yourself.
