TLC vs. Almost new

Guess I was unclear because I think we are in agreement, let me rephrase: I like a boat somewhere between 4 & 10-12 years old for all the reasons you mention, including the PO having to deal with any problems found on commissioning. And you are correct that I would do just as much maintenance etc. on a new boat (maybe more) as one 5 years old. I''m thinking your more common production boats here. Now for a really well made boat I could see getting something older if it was in appropriate condition. I think we also agree that depreciation for the first couple years and commissioning costs of a new boat are best avoided unless you just have too much money.TB
