Owning your own boat sounds wonderful in theory, but unfortunately, boat ownership comes with a long list of responsibilities and expenses. 

In addition to the cost of buying a boat, the average boat owner spends thousands of dollars per year.

Cost Savings

The average annual costs of owning a new boat range from $5,000 to $8,000 per year, according to Action Water Sports. The average annual costs of owning a used recreational boat is between $3,000 to $10,000, according to Allied Market Research. 

These expenses make owning a boat less desirable for many people.
