If you are looking for a boat for sale in the Washington County area, here is what you should know about Wausau.

Boats are apt to come from nearby cities

The obvious drawback to a town that has 400 or so residences is that the households will be fewer and therefore the number of boats within the 0.1 square foot area will be slim. However, Panama City Florida residences, Destin, Chipley, Cypress, Marianna, and even Tallahassee listers may put their boats for sale in Wausau. Those in Wausau seeking a boat may find that going to these nearby cities will provide a bit more diversity in the selection of boats available.

Access to the Gulf

As Panama City is a tourist location, boat buyers should take note that the boats in the area are apt to be Charter fishing boats or boats from seasonal houses. When purchasing a larger vessel such as a Hydrasport or a Boston Whaler, consideration should be given to the water access. Because Wausau is not on the water, you will have to navigate down the highway. A pull behind trailer is adequate in most instances. However, if you have a 45’ or larger you may find that once you get to the water you will need to go to one of the docks to launch (as the buildings and beaches in the area are close together and there are a great many dunes and private access points).
