How does CPO benefit my dealership?

You can buy smarter when you know with certainty what condition the boat is in. Not only that, you can provide your customers a premium service by offering a higher quality of pre-owned boats.

How does CPO benefit my customer?

An amazing 80% of first-time boat buyers choose to purchase pre-owned. These buyers don’t have a lot of experience with boats, so they value a program like CPO that helps them make a better-informed decision.

Can I charge more for CPO boats?

Absolutely. Customers have learned from other industries that certified pre-owned programs offer a better product, and they are willing to pay a premium for the peace of mind it offers.

What if a boat I submitted doesn’t pass?

You can make your purchase of the boat contingent on the boat passing inspection. If you do decide to buy the boat, now you have the information you need to prevent any unwelcome surprises for you or your customer.
