I think the OP made it clear that he's lookign at two different options,
1. A budget
boat under 20k just for private use or,
2. A larger and more modern boat in the 200-300k price range that his friend would finance upon condition of a return from any charter income
he would get.
I think option 2 is the most realistic, you'll have a stunning liveaboard and some income
as well. Option 1 is going to be VERY hard to acheave for that money.
