I'm new to sailing and own an Ericson
27 moored out in San Diego
Bay. This boat is my beater boat where I'm learning
and sailing at the same time without putting much into it.
I'm ready for a real cruising capable boat and have my heart set on the Pacific Seacrafts Dana/Orion. I know for sure that I would like to buy one in early next year. My budget
exceeds 50K but since I'm new to boating
, I'm not sure if I will be over paying for a boat. I have been to yachtworld and all of these PS I'm talking about are over 40k
So, my question is what should I know about pricing and negotiating with boat brokers? I would rather buy from a private party but I have not seen one on Craigslist in awhile. Any thoughts would help. Thanks
