on your budget, you'll need to see about 20 different boats, ignore colors and some smells. To get the most bang for your buck, you'll need to accept a boat that's either dirty and smelly with good sails/engine/rigging, or a boat that's clean but worn out in other respects. Pick your poision.
It cost us 3k to have ours moved from Tampa to Houston
. It's not worth your trouble to move one from west coast
to east coast
. There are literaly thousands of viable boats in florida. We looked at a morgan
31 a few years ago that was clean and simple, asking price
was 24k we could have picked it up for around 12-15k.......if you really don't want to be in San Diego
, don't think about buying
there and trucking.
