Which boat is better?

Hi kath here, just puttin it out there, that we are looking at the

:Ranger 40' Aft Cabin 1989...
& the
:44' Modern Flybridge Cruiser 1983...

is there any better boat style(for roominess)in this sort of rang?

& which would be better in fuel?
Seen a few for the $230, range, in Aust..looked good.

looking forward to any feed back,
Thanks.

Hi Kath!

Welcome to the group!

To provide a opinion on your question - it would be great to know where you're planning to go and what kind of cruising you're planning to do!

How much moving around vs. how much sitting in one (or a few places). Also, Primarily marina based, mooring out, anchored out or moving around?

Power? Sail? Camping out or living like at home?

Cheers,
Bill

Welcome Kath&John...If it is a power boat question that you have, perhaps you could post on the power boat thread.

Hi... O.K. I'll do that(post it on the powerboat thread).

Thanks Bill,
Prob just cruising around the coast of Aust for now, John my Husband wants to go back to Venuatu, so who knows...one day?

We think from speaking to others that we would anchore out abit, most of the time.
find some fav spots and cruise between them (maybe 3/4 spots), 2/3 weeks at each or some thing.

Want room to live- without gettin some thing too big, but some thing that can get us around well too?

Just seemed to catch our eye-those types. But are only just starting to look at what we want/need, now.

What about fuel? Are there any boats better on fuel than most others, that we should be looking into? We are more into the Motor cruisers
(No offence to those who love the sails).

Thanks for taking the time to reply,
kath
