I don't disagree with this and feel it is always better to get a boat that has the toys you want on it from the start. Would love to have a boat with a main furler
,........and a generator
But unless I suddenly come into a lot on money
boat is going to be the one I leave on in a few years.
I've have my Dutchman equipped boat for 2 years now and it works well enough that I'm not looking to spend any big bucks to replace the system. But little small things that would made it easier/better are worth considering.
