The hidden defects in any process of buying and selling a second-hand boat represent a very broad and at the same time restricted, delicate and at the same time manageable issue.
With this blog entry we would like to explain the difference between the myth that exists around hidden vices and reality.
Very often we hear something similar to “they hid it from me at the time of the transaction”. With this phrase, the meaning given to the problem that will have arisen is that during the sale something was hidden by the seller from the buyer.
What is a hidden vice?
"Hidden defects are those defects that are not known in advance before entering into a sales contract" - definition of economipedia.com.
So the hidden defects are defects that arise after the transaction with a previous origin and that could not be seen with the naked eye and that not even the maritime expert had been able to detect.
In any case, at the time of signing a contract for the sale of a second-hand motor boat, we always recommend that you carefully read the entire contract, paying particular attention to the section on responsibilities and guarantees.
