I have kind of ignored the model because of the high cost. I see now on Yachtworld a 37 in my price range $80-90K.
When you purchase
a great boat that is much older and at the lower end of the affordable price
range you may find it does not age well. A quick run down of the Amazon would make it a great boat - when it was new. It's apparent a fair amount has already been refit
. It's not hard to to think it will need much more. whe considering boats of this age you need to understand it is not what it was and to consider it you should also look at one priced higher to understand why it is priced lower.
Based on my own experience looking at 5 similar boats at various ages the higher priced boat was cheaper and it still did costs alot to get it all fixed up. Boats are never what they once were after 25 years so when given a choice you take the boat in better condition not the one that used to be better when new.
So in your place examine the two boats and make an offer on the better one as it is today. If you take a few more boats into the mix you can see it all much better. You can try to figure out what it takes to make them equal. At that point the better boat to begin with is usually the cheaper one in the end. Boats on paper are not what they are in the water
after 25 years. Look at the real boats as they are not what they used to be when new.
