Of course, you could always check on Craig's List for one, and I would suggest checking anyplace that is even close to Florida
or the Caribbean
, so that you don't limit yourself to only the BVI. Limiting yourself to one location alone will surely make it more difficult to get the best deal and the best option combination, as well as severely limiting the options you may have for negotiation.
You could use location as a means of negotiation if you are creative, and right now, post Matthew, Florida may have a few more minor scratch and dent options for you. There are probably some tremendous bargains to be had from unhappy new purchasers who had cash, desire for a boat
, and no experience in bad weather
. Their boats may be fine, but they may have decided that perhaps that cash could be applied elsewhere for entertainment as the hurricane
has tarnished that particular penny in their eyes.
Some (more affluent than I) people are funny
like that, especially those new to cash and boats, from what I have seen to date in my searches for vessels. I have been offered some really interesting deals, but did not have the money
to make the transactions, so passed on them. I cannot believe that the deals would be less available now that so many are questioning the wisdom of owning a high dollar cruising vessel in a hurricane-prone area...
Just my two cents worth...
