You’ll never want to sell your new Rayglass boat once you get it in the water, but it’s heartening to know that if you do, it’ll hold its value as well as any on the market.

We’ve had a look at why our well built fibreglass boats hold their value, as well as discussing why they’re in such high demand in the second hand market.

A smoother ride

Rayglass boats are renowned for their comfortable, soft ride, making them ideal for long distance cruising, overnight anchoring or all-day fishing trips. This is due to the precise specialist design of the hull.

For one, the hull is filled with closed cell foam that reduces noise and vibrations, along with making the boat unsinkable, while smart design and wide chines ensure steadiness and stability on the water. If you’re juggling up between fiberglass and aluminium, you’ll notice the difference.

A touch of luxury

The smooth, polished finish of Rayglass’s Legend series looks great on and off the water. They’re not too pretty to get covered in fish and burley while you’re out on the water, but touches of luxury like an onboard barbeque, cockpit table and expansive swim platform make long trips far more enjoyable.

This means fibreglass boats are the best option for boaters who like to take their time and relax out on the water, rather than just rushing out, reeling in a few fish and going ashore.

The added comfort and touches of luxury also make models like the Rayglass 3500 sedan cruiser perfect for family trips, as there’s plenty space for the kids to take a break in the saloon or a dip off the teak-covered swim platform.

Fiberglass Boats

A reputation for quality

The last, and perhaps most compelling reason, why Rayglass boats hold their value is simple. They’re renowned for their considered and refined design, build quality and exceptional performance – a reputation that’s been hard-earned after decades of experience.

Just like any big purchase in life, a boat is a long-term investment, and Rayglass’s fibreglass boats are made to deliver superior quality that lasts.
