As the leading provider of watercraft history reports, Boat History Report® helps our customers make better used watercraft purchase decisions by putting all available information at your fingertips. This type of information helps consumers guard themselves against buying a stolen boat or one with hidden damage which could negatively impact safety on the water.
We started in 2005 as a small dot-com but through our partnerships and dedication to the marine industry and used boat business, we have grown to help customers all across the world. Our customers include used boat buyers, sellers, dealers/brokers, marine surveyors, law enforcement, and finance and insurance companies. We are the most trusted resource for boat history information and a great place to start (or finish!) when looking to purchase or sell a used boat.
In 2005, Founder and CEO Grant Brooks was researching his next used boat and noticed that it was very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to find the complete history of used boats on the market.
“There were some resources out there but nothing was conclusive and everything was scattered. The safety of my friends and family was crucial and knowing if a boat I was going to buy had something that could negatively affect their well being created fear and uncertainty with my purchase. The data was out there... it just needed to be gathered from many public and private sources and consolidated to one place so boat buyers like you and I could easily search it.”
Since starting the company, Boat History Report® continually hears success stories from people just like us who were able to make more informed decisions and safer choices when purchasing used boats.
