Marietta Marine is not responsible for the cleanliness of your boat. Marietta Marine takes no responsibility in cleaning or repairing your boat while on consignment with Marietta Marine unless such services are requested by the owner and paid for accordingly.


Marietta Marine is not responsible for any items left in your boat. Marietta Marine secures the trailers of your boat, however, Marietta Marine does not put the boat behind a locked gate and people are able to access the boat during non-business hours. Marietta Marine recommends that you take any items out of your boat before listing with Marietta Marine. If there are items of value that are meant to go with the sale of the boat, you may bring those items into the front office and Marietta Marine will tag them and make sure that they go to the buyer.

All items left in a boat while the boat is listed for sale are assumed to be part of the purchase by most potential buyers. Therefore, Marietta Marine requires the owner of the boat to ONLY leave items in the boat that they wish to sell with the boat. Any items left in the boat at the time of sale will then become the property of Marietta Marine or the buyer of the vessel.

Marietta Marine is not responsible for the storage of your vessel during the time the vessel is listed for sale. Marietta Marine, on some occasions, may elect to keep your boat with their other used boats, if there is room. If Marietta Marine is able to do this, it will be for no term longer than 90 days and there will not be an additional cost for this. Marietta Marine will not always be able to keep your vessel in their non-fee storage facility, so Marietta marine highly recommends that you NOT cancel your current storage agreement.

Marietta Marine is granted permission by the owner of the vessel to take potential customers on demo rides. The owner agrees to bring the boat to Marietta Marine on consignment with no less than a full tank of fuel. Marietta Marine is not responsible for the fuel that is used during the demo rides. If the owner does not provide at least a full tank of fuel, they grant Marietta Marine the right to add fuel to the vessel at an on the water gas pump. The owner then agrees to reimburse Marietta Marine for the fuel at the time of sale or the time of voiding the Consignment agreement. This reimbursement of fuel will be in addition to the consignment fees as agreed to above.


If there is a lien on the boat, Marietta Marine will first pay to the bank proceeds from the sell and then pay the seller the remaining amount. If the boat sells for less than the seller owes, Marietta Marine will collect the money directly or the seller will pay it to the bank within 3 days.

The Seller will continue to make the monthly payments on their boat until such day that their lien is paid in full by either Marietta Marine or the Seller.
