THE CALIFORNIA SKIER CERTIFIED USED BOAT PROGRAM

Purchasing a Pre-owned, and hopefully Pre-loved boat,

has always been a prudent and effective way to bring the fun of a watersports lifestyle, to your family.

Strategically, you are covering all the important bases:  Sticking to a budget you’ve mapped out, and testing whether the family will actually embrace the lifestyle, before going “all in” financially …

But here is the looming caveat:

YOU REALLY DO NOT WANT TO BUY INTO SOMEONE ELSE’S NIGHTMARE OF UNRELIABILITY …

THE 40-POINT

The KEY POLICY to our Certified Used Boat Program, is for each and every Pre-owned boat that arrives here at California Skier, as a candidate for re-sale, whether as a “trade-in”, or as a “consignment sale”, to be put through our comprehensive and exhaustive Service Dept “40 Plus Point” inspection regimen  —  which incorporates an examination of every aspect of the boat:

ENGINE COMPRESSION TESTING                       

ALL SAFETY FEATURES                                     

ELECTRONICS

DRIVE TRAIN & UNDERWATER GEAR               

TOWER, BALLAST, & TRIM FEATURES         

AUDIO

HULL & GELCOAT EVALUATION

TRAILER ROAD-WORTHINESS

INTERIOR EVALUATION

CONFIDENCE

This 40-POINT acts as our FULL DISCLOSURE tool. It reflects the current condition of a wide spectrum of a boats performance and operational functions, and also includes our repair or reburbish recommendations  —  along with the associated costs to address.

For any boat to be placed into our Pre-owned inventory, our Service Dept has evaluated the boat, and either found the mechanical and safety functions to be sound and operational, or has implemented the required repairs to bring the boat to sound operational status.

Bear in mind, that a 10 year old boat, is likely to have many 10 year old parts. So, while we have assured operation upon purchase, there is a degree of unpredictability with any older system.

Cosmetic aspects are always open to individual interpretation. Hence, some boats may show some oxidation here and there, or wear and tear in terms of nicks or cosmetic surface crazing, and then again, some boats will have had complete new interiors installed.

THE CERTIFIED USED BOAT PROGRAM STANDARDS & WARRANTY

All California Skier Certified Pre-owned boats have undergone the 40-Point, and will be delivered with all mechanical and safety functions in sound operating condition. This includes all Bilge Pumps, Blowers, Depth Finders (if applicable), Ballast Systems, Trim Plates, Speed Control Systems, Audio Systems (excluding remote controls that may be discontinued or incompatible with an installed newer head unit).

Service Dept will insure fluids and impellor to be either acceptable or renewed.

More exotic systems such as integrated Cameras, Fish Finders, or Radar, some of which may involve discontinued components, are not included in this assurance.

All purchases of a Certified Pre-owned boat include our terms that should any issue arise within the first 30 days, the Buyer may return the boat to our Service Dept and have the issue corrected at the Dealer Cost of Parts and 1/2 the Regular Labor Rate.

Any boat in inventory that does not meet the “Certified” criteria, will be fully disclosed as such.
