Re: Initial Offer Question
Look at the problems the last boat you looked at had.
Any boat not properly maintained will eventually develop serious problems. The price of that boat also told of serious problems and they eventually surfaced. On this new one, the original engine with only 663 hours on it makes me wonder. Only 22 hours/season engine use? Hmmmmmm.... It will be interesting seeing the boat. I just may flat out not like it. Even that brand new 456 at the Annapolis boat show had things I just didn't like about it. I won't buy unless the glass slipper is the right fit.
This is just a getting my feet wet thing for now. We're looking at other boats but most of the ones we like are hundreds or more miles away. The Sabre 34 and a couple others that look interesting are close by. We will certainly do a lot of inspecting before we take the plunge.
