Not to rain on your parade, but there are things that are easily computed, such as loan costs and availability. Just google boat loans.

Even if you buy a 100K boat, expect to spend about 10% of the purchase price in the first year of ownership on fixing things that need to be fixed and making the boat your own.

If you have reliable income and enough assets don't be afraid of a loan. Money is cheap and the bigger and newer the boat the cheaper the money gets. Loans in the low 4% range are doable. Just be prepared for all the costs that you don't know about yet.

Well, not knowing the boat or it's age or his credit, loans in the low 4% may not be at all doable. The other factor is the number of years it will be financed. That number comes down significantly with age. Those two factors are why the payments might run considerably more than a home. Higher interest plus shorter term might be in play.

Re: Going Big. $100k+ Boats

Haha @ the guy in...that.

Yeah maybe I feel more motivated to do whats needed in order to have a larger boat too because of the idea of a storm and rogue waves.
Watched this youtube video of a guy who lost electronics and was stuck for a while crossing the northern atlantic..pretty scary the boat was flipped over multiple times, crazy...im not sure it seems though the larger the boat the safer you are in a situation like that.

Looked at those @gonesail they seems beautiful. There was no sarcasm in that though, right?
