I don't think buying an out of production boat is that much of a problem. In the last 20 + years all my boats have been from OOBs. One consideration would have to be the engine. Some Ericsons came with Palmers which will be a parts problem and I would avoid those boats. Diesels are nicer than gas engines, but I would buy a well cared for boat with an Atomic 4 over a poorly cared for boat with diesel.
