Plan and decide your budget.  Use only half the budget for the purchase.  The remaining budget must be Spent on upgrades.  If you end up buying a yacht for the whole budget, the upgrades will burn your wallet because of the cost.

Don’t spend too high on decorating parts like chains which are subject to most wear and tear.

Avoid rig and engine older than 15-20 years.  Inspect the engine.  A trial sail can be of more help.  Also, take an expert well-wisher along with you if you lack in technical knowledge.

Carefully watch for fancy painting work which hides corrosion.  Yachts are prone to corrosion due to the weather and salty air of the sea.  Corrosion reduces the life of the yacht.

Get full details of designer and builder of the yacht.  Analyze their quality and experience.  Only a knowledgeable builder will provide a good quality yacht with maximum features.

Ensure adequate safety features like lifeboats, wifi etc.  Do not compromise on this.

Decide the purpose of the Yacht.  The size and features of the Yacht should fit your purpose.  The yacht is a costly asset which serves a long time.  It is not something like a mobile phone which you can change frequently.

Look for spare provisions.  Basics like toilet facilities etc should be provided with a spare.  During the sail, if something does not work, the spare will save from discomforts.

Once you select the Yacht, Charter it first.  This will help in finding the condition of quality.  Also chartering will make you experience the Yacht and decide whether the Yacht fits you.

Check the documents of ownership.  This should be done with great care.
