Re: Best used cheap blue water boats 30-45ft

Perhaps you should consider a maximum age. Would you want the maintenance inherent in a 30 year old boat? Wouldn't it be an advantage to enjoy the benefits of improved boat design and better equipment in newer boats? Upgrading an older boat up to the standards of a more modern boat is likely to be prohibitively expensive

Don't dismiss the importance of boat speed as a safety consideration.
