Boat Show Review
Sorry our schedules didn''t mesh during the Annapolis show. Your mention of the Bavaria, Dufour, and Dehler reminded me that we spent a bit of time with them, as well. I agree that, on balance, they seem to fill that middle spot. Although, like almost all the boats I checked out, each had one or more things I didn''t like at the time (don''t ask me what they were because I didn''t take notes).
On a related note: barring a financial windfall, we won''t be buying a boat (in 2005) less than 5 years old, and possibly more like 15 years old. I''m starting to think that looking at all new boats at these shows (Annapolis, Atlantic City, etc.) is counterproductive, since most of the older boats are fairly different. Anyone else in this situation?
