About Doral Boats
What you need to know about the Doral Brand
Doral boats, the name sounds familiar, but you cannot find any information about the company. Why is this? The main reason is that the boating manufacturer has in all sense, ceased to exist. Doral which was once a thriving boat manufacturer filed for a second bankruptcy in 2012. The Quebeck based company was acquired by Denis Polisseno in 2011 after the first bankruptcy filing. As to date, all of the employees have been laid off and production has ceased. What does this mean for boat seekers? Here are a few things to consider about the Doral Boats for sale.Read More
They are available but they are not
In terms of new production, the Doral Brand is not available. This does not mean that you cannot find boats for sale from Doral. There are several sites which offer pre-owned Doral Boats for sale. So the demand for the boats and the supply is still there, but it is dwindling. Boat seekers should look for models which are within the 2000-2007range as these are similar to other competitive boats in its class.
Pricing for the Doral Brand boats for sale range from the 20k for the smaller boats up to around a $300,000 cap off for the larger boats. Keep in mind that this does not take into account special packaging and motor upgrades (a common feature on some of the older outboards).
A very realistic consideration for the Doral boats for sale is that you will need to ensure that you can acquire parts for maintenance and repair. As the brand is no longer in existence, this means that you will need to either find parts which are compatible with your pre-owned Doral boat, or you will need to find manufactured parts from a third-party vendor. If you already have a boat mechanic, you should check with the mechanic to see if Doral boat parts are available.
Although the Doral Brand is no longer manufacturing boats, there may be some legal responsibility from the investors and shareholders to any stern-to-bow warranties which are still in effect. If you have a Doral Brand boat or wish to purchase a pre-owned boat which has such a warranty, it is strongly advised that you seek legal counsel concerning the validity and legality of the warranty. Outboard warranties on the motor should be transferred directly through the manufacturer where applicable.
While the service on some of the models may be limited, you should be able to find most of the interchangeable features (such as canvas tops, outboard motors, line attachments, etc.) from your local boating supplier or from a reputable boat listing site.
Where is the Doral Brand best used?
Doral Boats are best suited to leisure cruising and to sports cruising. Therefore, the Bay as well as coastal inshore and offshore use is appropriate depending upon the size of the vessel. For example, the Doral Intrigue is large enough for Atlantic or Gulf cruising but also small enough that it could be used in a large lake for recreational purposes. The 45’ Doral Alegra would be too large for such and would be best suited to offshore adventures.
A positive of the Doral Brand is that there is a diversity of sizes and intended functionality to the brand. Additionally, the price margin on the used boats spans from the lower to the more elite market, making it affordable for most household incomes.
