Help me find my budget dream boat!

I am just passing on wisdom from friends at the yacht club who have just gotten back from circumnavigating. They stopped at malta on the way to the Dalmation Islands area and said that in the week they spent their the temptation to "upgrade" to a larger and fancier boat was almost irresistable. Yachts they could not hope to have afforded in Australia were fully outfitted and going to pot in the harbour at malta with prices at around 50% and dropping.
They showed some very nice and drool-inspiring slides too.

The opinion seemd to be that folks with the really top end boats can afford to have them delivered to soemwhere where they will get a better price. So what you tend to find are the cruisers that have been optimised for "couples" that then don''t have the resources to do anything but try to sell where they park.

You now know as much as I do. Get ont he internet and google away.
