Now your down to a what sized boat too. As some will say the bow thrusters are nice if single handing a boat over about 40', some will say hogwash.

You're still into personal preference. If in warm clims, a heater may not be needed, yet some will say AC is, others a waste.

Then you get into in mast furling etc, some say great, other too much SA lost!

There is not right or wrong!

If a boat does not have what you consider to be a must have, then the question is, do I skip said boat? or if the boat is what I want, then I add the must have later. I personally would get the best base boat, then would prefer to add must haves later, that way if said boat has a new brand x radio lets say, I prefer brand y, I do not have to throw away per say, brand x and buy brand y, I just toss the older or if it does not have a radio, I buy and install replace older version.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
