My wife and I are in a similar situation. We have gone to 2 boat shows, Annapolis
, and Newport
, RI. A lot of the boats in the thread were there, plus a lot more. We have the same features in mind and new a boat that qualifies is 800k to over a million. I would recommend you go to some of the bigger shows, maybe the one in Miami
later this year, board the boats and see which one strikes your fancy, then go from there. We like the passport and discovery, although new are over your budget
. You may want to step back, find the one you want, then look for it in a 2-5 year old model. Many of the 2-5 year old boats are like new and never left the harbor. Good luck!
