Essex logo means this boat has been certified by Essex.
An Essex certified used product means any used boat sold by Essex has been inspected by our team of boat building professionals and certified technicians. Our rigorous inspection allows you peace of mind weeding out many potential oversights some novice boat buyers may not know to look for.
We check structural integrity such as hull damage or cracking, gelcoat quality or issues and floor wood damage. We also run a diagnostic test of the motor and a physical inspection of the drive and gimbal tolerances. A compression check of all cylinders is also provided, giving you insight on the potential strength or deterioration of the motor. We also check electrical and gauge function.
We at Essex are dedicated to making your used boat purchase a little easier.
The certification does not imply the used boat sold is void of any such issues. The inspection is for you the buyer to have knowledge of what is an issue relative to the above inspection. The seller may choose not to repair any such issues (regarding any consignment products.) Essex will make buyer aware of such findings and offer compression readings as well.
