Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Does your bill of sale states "as is" condition?
Thank you for your follow up.
Were you provided with any type of written purchase / sales agreement or bill of sale for the boat by the dealer?
Is this a used boat?
Does the bill of sale state that the boat was sold in "as is" condition?
Or does the bill of sale state that it was sold with some type of warranty?
Did you test the boat before your purchased it?
Unfortunately, generally, unless the used boat is sold with some type of written warranty, it would be considered to be sold in "As is" condition and it is up to the consumer to have the boat thoroughly inspected by an independent marine mechanic prior to purchase.
So, unfortunately, generally, unless the consumer has real evidence that the dealer had made some type of material misrepresentation about the used boat to induce sale or had engaged in some other deceitful business practice, I am afraid there would generally not be any legal recourse under similar circumstances.
