If you're looking for an older boat in order to find sometimg with the size and price
that you need, shopping
by make and model becomes close to useless.
As an example, look at the Morgan
OI 33's on the market. They are going to be old and likely structurally compromised by poor care. The tanks
, engine and electrical system
will likely need replacement; however, once in a while you'll find one that has been kept pristine or totally renovated. Even with much money
put into an older boat, their market value will stay fairly low.
In addition, some makes are hard to shop for because they are rarely seen. Like that Grampian
the Mike O'Reily mentioned. I would suggest that you select a few features that you want and search online in places where you can look at the boats an remain open to accepting manufacturers that you are unfamiliar with.
When you find a potential boat, Don't Fall In Love With It! .... get advice
about the specific problems and recommendations that might be specific to the boat manufacturer.
Great old boats at good prices are out there and patience wins!
