As to the larger boat, $49,000 is the asking price, not necessarily the selling price. With your budget though, I wouldn't go over $34,000 for the boat. Though you may not think it will cost you "much more", I doubt anyone on here wouldn't tell you that it will.

As you said, the Discovery is more appealing to you, and that is a factor. As well as the fact you would have a considerably larger fund of money to prepare the boat.

In the end, the choice is yours, and should be one that leaves you feeling good about the purchase.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
