One may set oneself up for a rude financial experience to think one can buy a yacht so cheap there's no risk in doing so. The cheaper the boat, and the bigger it is, the larger the dollar hole will be.

I'd guess that if a buyer is very, very expert and very, very careful, one could find a "good" deal that is not a hosing waiting to happen. But for the rest of us....
