What are the most important considerations for a boat buyer?

Pretty hefty question. May I suggest a couple of books that will help you select a boat that is right for YOUR plans, YOUR budget and YOUR family.
First is Beth Leonards, Voyager''s handbook...Second is COMPLETE GUIDE CHOOSING CRUISING SAILBOAT
Author: Roger Marshall

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that you want a boat with a mast under 65'' and a draft of 6'' or less if the ICW is in your plans...but there''s about a hundred other things that should be on your wish list for the perfect boat and these books may help you sort that out before you log on to Yachtworld.com!
Have fun!
