How to find New Boat Deals?

I've been having a hard time finding a 'good ole used boat' as a 'starter boat'. Seems most owners down here are not so caring about their vessels. My wife after the last boat rejection, said 'maybe you should increase your price range'.

So, I was wondering about a new boat purchase; 30-33' range, mono, performance cruiser, shallow draft for coastal sailing.
Other than the occasional advert in the sailing magazines, I can't find and deals/discounts etc on the manufactures sites.
So besides working with each of them individually , how can I aggregate various models to see at a high level which is the best deal? Where is Consumer Reports when you need them!!

Finally, do all the new boats get sold? I mean can I find a new 2013/4 boat that was never owned/sold? I'd like to avoid the depreciation hit.
Thanks for reading this and commenting.
