Hello all. I may have a job opportunity coming in Florida
that will have my wife and I living a stones throw from the ICW
. We have an ole Bayliner Conquest now and it will be enjoyed by a new owner on our local lake in Texas
if we leave. We'll be looking to get something in the 35 to 45 foot range to cruise
with occasional trips through the keys and to the Bahamas
. Maybe an express cruiser
like we have now, or maybe bump it to cockpit motor
yacht. Either way, my question is gas or diesel
? If we were leaving north America, diesel
would be a no brainer, but just to stay semi local for a few years gas boats are sure a lot cheaper. Then again, those mid 90's Sea Ray
450's and 500's only come with diesels. I'd wager a guess they cross the gulf stream
real nice also. Looking for people who have both and cruise
all these areas to chime in.
Thanks in advance.
