First conclusion here: boat folks are super helpful people. I am learning
a lot here...so Cheers To ALL!
Hearing all this sends me down a few rabbit holes. I wont go above 35ft - no reason to for me. Of course if the perrrfect boat comes along at 37 - i just might bend that rule
a touch! I think I am in the market for a well refit
boat since I could spend more $ doing it myself sounds like. Also BEAM is super important here I am learning
- along w/ cabin
layout. And maintenance
costs depends on gizmos and gadgets not just size - but size does matter....we all know that. its not all that simple huh? Of course not.
The boat that recently got my heart beating is this one:
Its sold - but looks great to me. Lots of new stuff, not too too old, nice manageable length, good, comfy layout I could easily live in, headroom
, airy, low engine
hours, to name a few. I can single-hand her if need be. Most people seem to like IPs. Its seems the IP32 avg about 30k more....not sure if thats worth it. This boat would only need a few little additions for me it seems. Not sure exactly how much extra $ i would need to make her 'fully' mine which is something i need more time to research
But can she go offshore
? I have read different opinions...
