Two more crews have reported catching a marlin and will be waiting for the scale at about 5 p.m. tonight, June 13th.

Mr. Jackson has expressed a strong liking for wooden boats and has owned a few beautiful models throughout his life. Hoochie Coochie, a 1996 Gentleman’s Racer built by Hickman Wooden Boat Works, is the first of many wood boats.

Alan Jackson purchased a 1955 29-foot Chris-Craft Semi-Enclosed boat in poor condition in 2002. He drove the boat to Tennessee so that Hickman Boat Works could do extensive restoration work on it. The restoration process took three years because every detail had to be attended to and perfected. He named the boat Flat Top in honor of Mr. Jackson’s flat-top steel-string acoustic guitars.

Ferrari Inspired Design Superyacht

You’re familiar with Ferrari’s iconic automobiles. On the roads, they are unmistakable. To be clear, the Ferrari brand is not working on a superyacht. The Lazzarini Design Studio has unveiled its superyacht design inspired by Ferrari. This amazing design is a sight to behold because it includes details that distinguish the cars. Let’s get a closer look into this Ferrari-inspired design superyacht, including some background on the design studio behind it all.

About the Lazzarini Design Studio

Pierpaolo Lazzarini is an Italian designer who was born and raised in Rome and now runs his company from there. Lazzarini has worked in the automobile sector for many years and hence has extensive knowledge of cars. He believes that his ideas are an innovative approach that will shake up the industry and that they are just the type of alternative design approach that is required. He has a lot of experience with prototyping and applying his aesthetic vision to it.

Think about the future never forget the past…

lazarrinidesignstudio.com

Noteworthy Features

This design is named the Gran Turismo Mediterranea (GMT) concept. The overall structure is built of superlight carbon fiber, which is both lightweight and robust. As for speed, it is equipped with powerful jets and three Man v12 engines. This allows it to attain a top speed of 70 knots, or 80 miles per hour. The hydra-foils, which raise the hull out of the water and make the vessel aerodynamic, were developed by Lazzarini. This feature can help you save money on gas and is quite speedy. The aft deck has a retractable transom at the back of the yacht. This capability allows you to quickly launch a tender or increase the amount of space available onboard for entertainment.

After this concept has come to life, there will be a lot more things to integrate. We expect to get more information about all of the unique amenities aboard this superyacht. We just have minimal understanding right now, but even the basics are incredible.

Ferrari Inspired Design Touches

In true Ferrari style, the design is resolutely focused on the future, adopting a hybrid propulsion system consisting of three-MAN v-12 engines, an Arneson transmission and a central Hamilton jet drive.

yachtworld.com

The race-style cockpit, as seen in the image above, is modeled after automotive elements. To complete the look, there are supercar pilot helm seats, a racing-style steering wheel, and distinct start and stop buttons. Take note of the “Rossa Cosa” touches of the red interior color, which translates to “Racing Red” and is well-known as a Ferrarri color. On the bow of the superyacht, there are notes of the classic Ferrari logo.

This Ferrari-inspired design superyacht is just one of Lazarrini Design Studios’ numerous futuristic concepts. On their website, they have many more concepts and designs, some of which have even come to fruition. More inventive superyachts can be found here.

Easy and Efficient Way to Get CASH for Your Boat

You are looking to profit generously from that pre-owned boat you never seem to use? Or are you in the market for a new boat and need to get rid of your old one quickly? You’ve come to the right place if you want to receive the most money for your boat in today’s market. Off the Hook Yachts provides a quick and efficient option to get cash for your boat in today’s economic climate.

Rising Changes in the Market

Due to rising interest rates and gas prices, this summer may be different from the rest of the prior years. Given that boating is one of the most popular summer recreational activities, these factors could have a significant impact. This does not imply that you will not enjoy your favorite pastime; rather, it indicates that more people are looking to sell. Every day, additional inventory is added to the market! The good news is that you can take advantage of this uptick and sell your boat for the top price. All the more reason to get cash for your boat sooner rather than later.

Off the Hook’s Buying Process

We begin by reviewing all of the information entered into our online form, which is accessible via our website here. All you have to do is tell us the make, model, and year of the vessel you want to sell. One of our buying agents will contact you with a cash offer for your boat that is comparable to the market value. We’ll need to undertake a brief inspection to make sure there aren’t any big flaws that would lower the resale value. Then, in 2-4 days, we will close, guaranteeing that no time is wasted.

Why Wholesaling is Better?

The advantages of wholesaling will convince you to buy a used boat instead of a new one off the lot. We can sell at a competitive price since we buy in bulk, decreasing handling time and overall costs. Selling your boat this way is by far the simplest method, and doing so with Off the Hook makes the process even easier. We have 10+ years of business expertise, a BBB accreditation, on the top 100 boat dealer list, and a 5-star google rating.

As the largest buyer of pre-owned boats in the United States, we are one of the few boat dealers who will pay you cash for your boat. Because of our large volume, we can offer you the most competitive prices!

Sell your boat NOW

Now is the time more than ever to begin looking at selling your boat. The market is in its prime as many people are getting their investments back on boats barely used. As the summer season approaches, many people are looking forward to getting back on the water. As a result of the influx of new boaters, boat sales continue to climb. We can ensure that you get the most out of your used boat.

Capitalizing on the Pre-Owned Market

We’re almost halfway through the year, and the maritime business has changed dramatically. It all began in 2021 when we noticed a trend of new boaters capitalizing on the pre-owned boat market. Many supply chain concerns are producing a backlog in new boat manufacturing, which is an ongoing issue. The problems that arose as a result of the pandemic have had a long-term influence on the industry. We can forecast the future of the used boat market based on previous occurrences and current conditions.

Predictions for The Future

As more boats reach the market in 2022, we should predict a rapid increase in pre-owned boat sales. Those who bought during the pandemic in 2019-2020 are now selling, driving the surge. After a few years of turmoil, most people are ready to downsize, and the market to sell your boat is back in full swing. Second, due to increased demand, used boat prices are rising, allowing many owners to take advantage of the hot market and make a larger profit on their used boats than in previous years.

Capitalizing on Pre-Owned Boats

If you’re not interested in buying a used boat, keep in mind that a new boat’s production time is still years away. Because boat manufacturers have limited inventory, the new product is pre-sold and shipped to the consumer. This means that there is very little inventory left for other purchasers. You can expect a new boat to be completed in 2023 or 2024 if you commission one now. With boating season on the horizon, this isn’t exactly what you want to hear.

Consider whether you’d rather wait years for a boat and miss out on all the experiences you could have made, or go for a near-new boat that will get you on the water sooner.

Where to find quality pre-owned boats?

How Boat Loans Work

Spring has sprung and the boat of your dreams gets listed on the market. You are unsure if you should pay for the boat in cash or with a loan. Simply knowing how boat loans work is beneficial for your personal knowledge as you begin researching the financing process. You have the option of taking out a personal loan or hiring a financing firm to assist you. Neither is superior to the other; it is simply a matter of personal preference. In this blog, we will discuss what a boat loan is, different loan types, and where to get a boat loan.

First things first… What is a boat loan?

A lender will require the borrower (you) to fill out a loan application, which can be lengthy, comparable to an auto loan for a car. You’ll be asked to provide proof of assets and disclose all of the information from your tax return. The lender’s first concern is whether or not you will be able to repay the loan. The lender will request a full summary of your personal finances.

The application process is simple, and loan approval is based mostly on credit score and repayment capabilities. Although banks normally need 10% to 20% down for the purchase of a yacht–you may be able to finance the entire amount.

How loans work: Secured vs. Unsecured

Fortunately, many banks and other lenders have devised products to suit practically every budget and way of life. Secured and unsecured loans are the two basic types of loans. Each of them has advantages and disadvantages, as with anything else, and it’s crucial to understand the differences. Disclaimer: The amount of money you can borrow and the interest rates you can get will be determined by the lending institution and your credit history.

Secured

Secured loans are those in which the money lent is backed up by collateral. Collateral is something you own that has value and can be used to secure a loan if you default on payments. These can include things like homes, investment properties, automobiles, and even the new boat you’re buying.

Low-interest rates are usually a benefit of this form of loan because the collateral serves as repayment. For the lender, this is a safer option than an unsecured loan. This type of loan is frequently granted to those who have a poor credit history.

Unsecured

This loan is the polar opposite in that it does not require collateral, but it does come with drawbacks. Due to the lender’s increased risk, they usually have higher interest rates and more limitations. Not to mention that applying for an unsecured loan is more complex. People frequently use a personal loans to meet their financial needs. Personal loans are unsecured and have lower interest rates than other types of financing.

Opting for a personal loan

Personal loans are known for their low-interest rates and flexible payback schedules. A personal loan may be a suitable option for you if you have a decent credit score and enough income. You can also make additional payments that go entirely toward the principal payment or pay off the entire loan completely. Your yacht or any other asset will not be used as collateral and your creditworthiness and verifiable income are the only requirements for an unsecured loan. You will receive the complete amount in your bank account after your loan request has been authorized and funded.

Where to get a loan?

Banks, credit unions, online lenders, and other lending institutions can provide loans for boat purchases. An excellent place to start is by contacting your personal bank to inquire about financing alternatives. Nowadays it’s more common to see a boat dealer offering their own options for financing. As part of our mission to provide an exceptional customer experience, we have partnered with Azure Funding to streamline and simplify the financing process for your boat or yacht.
