Selection and purchase
of a boat needs a large degreee of hard headed realism, and considerable research
and analysis. Unfortunately too many people get lead into purchase
by what the eye sees rather than a long process of analysis.
You need to sit down and work out exactly what you need in terms of boat capability and features. You then need to assess a weighting for those factors. Having established this baseline, you can look at a number of different vessels to establish reality against that baseline. Finally, you can look at specific vessels against that baseline.
This is the standard methodology for assessing contracts, and worked well for me onb purchae of my first boat - a purchase which met the requirements for the following 20 years.
