Another option I forgot to mention is to buy a cheaper boat maybe half the cost - around 100k spend another 30-50k to get her ready, with this option the boat cost are a lot less, we could still rent the home and/or pay the boat off quicker. A down side is, a loan is harder to get on an older boat (we do have stellar credit though). Also typically more repairs on an older boat.
