Re: Boat Finders Fee!

With a shopping list like that, you would do better buying a new boat although your budget will not support that. Used boats mean compromise.

A lot of the items on your list you could add(electronics, windvane, canvas, WM, etc). I would recommend this anyway if they are older components.

Concentrate on the 5 permanent berths in an <40 ft AC boat for less than $50k. This implies a 3 cabin boat as you will find virtually no AC boats that have 3 berths in one cabin. Not many boats will fit that bill.

Excellent condition at that price will also be a deal breaker.
