New Book for Boat Buyers Just Released

January 2023 Feature

Captain Matt, a boating consumer advocate, announced the release of his book Boat Buyer’s Secret Weapon (AVOID Expensive, Frustrating & Embarrassing BLUNDERS Buying a New or Used Boat) this week and it's now available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and other booksellers.

With over 7.2 million views on Boat Buyer’s Secret Weapon YouTube Channel, Captain Matt has been actively educating boat shoppers for years.

According to the author, “Discover Boating’s research highlights the reason so many boat shoppers never buy a boat is that they are confused, overwhelmed, and scared.  That’s disappointing because they are missing out on what could be a lifelong love!  That’s why I’ve written this book.”

The book covers topics such as how to select the right boat, create an accurate budget, inspect used boats, common mistakes first-time boaters make, and questions to ask a seller before writing a check. Those considering a new or used boat this summer can get a downloadable copy for free at
