About Used Boat Review Data


Used Boat Review, (UBR),( a product of L.I.M.F.R.), was started by Marine Repair professionals and repair experts who were frustrated by the expensive and tedious process of trying to figure out what are the typical things that break and need to be repaired on a boat by make, model and year. We created Used Boat Review to provide boat owners, purchasers and marine underwriters with accurate, unbiased, and useful Used Boat Reviews.


UBR offers a stress-free, time-saving method of obtaining relevant common issues and problems  conscientious consumers need by Make, Model and Year boat. UBR’s unique system relies on multiple sources of difficult-to-acquire proprietary data that has never before been available to consumers. 

UBR provides a quick, convenient phone order system to purchase an "ISSUE Report”. We can email or mail you a copy of your report which includes the “Top Ten List”, and a "Check List" .




The Science and Data Behind UBR’s  Custom “Pre-Purchase Reports”™

It sounds pretty simple—build a report that lists some of the most common repairs and problems on thousands and thousands of boats is quite involved. Before you purchase any used boat, weather a 1956 Chriscraft or a 2014 Azimut, you should probably see what Common Problems and or Issues are known of by Industry repair people. People who work on boats every day is one of the great sources of information.


Used Boat Reviews Data, (UBR), compiles information by MAKE, MODEL and YEAR boat with the Common Problems and Issues found.

Our Methodology is sound and comprehensive. We use the data that we have gathered over the years by working on specific Makes, Models and Years. We also get other repair industry professionals data, industry data, company data, use data, manufactures data. Our in-house researcher then combs through the repair information.


Our proprietary model generates common problem details by make, model and year. We use advanced statistical techniques on thousands of real-world data points—gained through surveys and analyses of actual repair details—to refine and test our model. We combine the model’s output with our proprietary database.


We incorporate multiple proprietary sources for detailed information, adjust for macroeconomic factors, and leverage data and marine repair professionals to continually update our database. After all data is analyzed and tabulated, we review, then upload the details to our system.


This enables us to deliver highly-accurate Common Problems and Issues found on boats.

We arm clients with information about the specific Make, Model and Year boat.
