Find cheap fishing boats for sale by searching for used models on sites such as eBay.com, BoatTrader.com, Boats.com and Craigslist.org. Used boats are cheaper than new boats, but require more detailed inspections to ensure the quality and durability of the vessel.
When shopping for a used fishing boat, the buyer needs to inspect the hull for any holes or other damage, as this renders the boat incapable of sailing. The buyer also needs to find out how many miles are on the motor and see if it works properly. Finding issues or older components is also one way buyers negotiate lower prices with sellers.
