I've bought old and I've bought new. If I were in your shoes I would buy the used boat and upgrade/replace as required. Two reasons. 1)Stuff breaks with equal reliability on new boats as well as old 2) boats are a depreciating asset. You will never get close to what you paid for a new boat on the resale market.
