Welcome

Hello,

There are a bunch of dealers around me. I live in Simcoe (Lake Erie) Check out Bridge Marine.

Also I know of a few boats around Turkey Point that people are selling. I just bought a 30 ft boat myself about 1 month ago.

That is quite a range of boat sizes and weights between a 17 ft bowrider and the 23 ft Chris Craft. One of your criteria is going to be the tow vehicle you have, unless you are going to leave it in a marina.

What use do you have planned for the boat.

Paul

Thank you guys for the boats,

Paul , i am not worried about the tow as i do have a couple of bg cars or i might leave it at the marina which will be better for me coz i live in a condomunium in down town .

i have talked to some boat owner and he told me that his boat goes from 23 to 30 mile/ hour
my question is that svery slow or its a fair speed for a boat ?

Thank you all .

It will be a lot easier to help you if you are able to answer my previous question about what you are planning to do with the boat. Do you plan to use it primarily for fishing, pulling your kids around on a tube, or perhaps water skiing or bare footing. Also, do you plan to use it on big open water like Lake Ontario or Georgian Bay, or will it be used on a lake like up in the Muskoka's.

I have a competition ski boat that is perfect for pulling me through a slalom course on a calm lake or river, but it would be useless out on lake Ontario on a typical Sunday afternoon or for trolling for fish along some shoreline.

Hi, we also live in Toronto.
Check out the Out harbour Marina, Lakeshore and Leslie.
They will be getting rid of all the boats that have been left on the hard for several years, I am sure that people have not been paying the rent etc.
They are selling off all the old boats you could get a good bargin there.
We bought ours last year from www.TorontoYachtSales.com
Good luck
Helena

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you asking questions here and I hope you found the answers. I think anything over 12 knots is fast.
regards,
