Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I checked out all of them. The Gozzard is really a nice boat but they are out of my price
window. I've budgeted 75k for a boat so my selection is limited. The Oceanus 40 is the realistic favorite from all suggestions. I REALLY like the transom with steps and a seat to take your fins off. I've decided that feature is a must on my boat. Wider is better and a wide flat stern with a large roomy cockpit
. The Gozzards cockpit
is awesome, but the CSY36 is nice too. I like the big cage in the back.
I was thinking aft cabin
because I am a preparedness FREAK and I plan to carry enough tools and spare parts
to survive a nuclear winter. An aft cabin
seems like a nice workshop/storeroom for this purpose.
I've seen lots of interior
features that I like, but not on the same boat, so I'm considering buying
a nice older hull
to renovate. Any suggestions on some bulletproof hulls worth the investment?
