Robert, you are right - and sorry for the thread drift, but yes, the euro and Canadian dollar are both moving down at a similar rate. However, I would be buying
used and likely in the USA/Caribbean. And of course, my cruising budget
includes not only the boat, but also upgrades/repairs and annual costs aboard. If I am cruising in the Caribbean
, I typically need to convert to USD and my annual costs will also be up by 25%, reducing the amount available out of my total budget
for the puchase of another boat.
No big deal - my current boat is certainly up to the task and there was no guarantee that I was going to upgrade in any event. From the opposite side of the coin, of course, it does put people in the USA like the OP at a distinct advantage right now, if they are prepared to look in Europe
for a used boat
