Disclaimer: I don't own a cat, but I've been researching the market a lot for several years, as I had planned to retire this year.
The vast majority of the 47s were made for Moorings and other charter
fleets. A lot of them have had pretty heavy use with less than ideal maintenance
. Many will have very high engine
hours for their age compared to non-charter boats. There's an expression that applies to a lot of them "rode hard, put up wet."
Also, boats built for the charter industry are usually built to a lower price
point that those built for private ownership
. The level of finish, equipment
, etc., all suffer for that.
