Whichever brand of boat you purchase, get a reputable surveyor to complete his evaluation on it. Keep with a quality builder although every boat may or may not have been taken care of. Expect to upgrade those items you want on your first boat. That's why you must allocate 25% of your purchase price for maintenance and such.
There are a lot of good boats out there to investigate, but first you would save yourself time if you do some research on the Net & limit your selection to
three brands you like. It makes it easier to compare these three and you will become familiar with their qualities and standard equipment.
