Ok, bare with me. Im sure these questions have been asked quite a few times but here are mine...
Im looking to buy a used boat
. No rush right now because I want to make sure I do it right. Quality not quanity. Im thinking next winter.
I really want a cruiser/mini yacht= 25-35' what make or makes? I need to really narrow my search. Carver, searay, ect. I have seen so many different ones now that I am lost
. The primary use would be open ocean cruising I.E. trips to Catalina
from San Diego
with just a few friends
What handles well in rough water
? And what to look for on a boat that would help determine that?
What type of motor
? Brand, inboard, outboard
Is there a difference between a cruisers and motoryachts? Im so confused!!!!
I have already considered docking
, & insurance fees
. Also a safety
course and possibly a sailing/captains course. But I cant even get to that point until I figure out what I should be looking at. I wanted to spend a lot but after looking it seems as if I could find something around $25,000-$40,000. I just really need help on determining what makes, models & years? Im thinking 1990-2003
Thanks for your help
I cant wait to read what you all have to say
