There is unquestionably “something about a boat,” whether a kayak, a centre console, a runabout, a cruiser or a yacht. It gleams in a posh marina or bobs quietly in a hidden harbour.
As there are many boats for sale in Singapore right now, here are 6 reasons why you should buy one.
Boating relieves anxiety.
Everyday existence is tense. There is the travel time. The congestion. Constant competition for our attention from emails, messages, phone calls, and technological devices that beep, trill, and squawk. Our minds require rest. Brains are meant to respond favourably to water, and proximity to water may calm and unite us, inspire creativity and insight, and even heal the harm. Owning a boat allows you to calm down, interact with others, and escape the daily stresses of life.
Boating provides excellent exercise.
Using your own boat as a platform for pleasure gives many options; water skiing, wakeboarding, SCUBA diving, snorkelling, and swimming are all excellent physical activities. And let’s not forget the joys of fishing — trolling for the elusive “big one” or just playing around with a cheap casting rod may help you concentrate your attention, relax your mind, and perhaps even provide you with a delicious lunch.
Learning new skills.
Mastering new abilities are required to operate a boat safely, and learning new skills keeps the mind fresh. From knots to navigation, anchoring to tying up at a marina, knowing port from starboard and bow from stern, the more you learn, the more you will appreciate your adventure. Learn the terminology, the laws of the road, the quirks of your equipment, and the nuances of operating in all possible combinations of current, tide, and wind.
Strengthens family bonds.
The ownership of a boat enables all family members to participate. As you acquire new talents, encourage your children to do the same. Together, enrol in courses or search YouTube for instructions on knots, weather forecasting, and navigation. Give your children (or visitors) regular duties to make them feel like they are a part of the event. You’ll discover unexpected things about each other that you couldn’t find any other way, and you’ll grow confidence in each other’s skills.
Joining a unique community.
The boating community is varied, and its membership is an incredible honour. Whether you are a brain surgeon, an auto mechanic, an attorney, or a teacher, you have a shared experience when you are on the water. Boaters assist one another. They exchange tips, tools, and methods. They exchange food, literature, and hidden anchorages. And their potlucks are among the greatest on the globe.
Have control over your vacation.
When you’re on the water, you travel where and when you like, at your own speed and at your own time. You set your budget. You determine when and what to eat. You choose where you will stay the night. A private boat trip may be as plentiful or as basic as desired.
