I must agree with Denr and Jeff; you will be much better off with a 10/15/20 year-old quality boat than a brand new Benehuntalina. Don''t be seduced by the superficial: the sparkling gelcoat, fresh cabin upholstry, clean bilges, and dealer croonings are just that - superficial.

On the other hand, if you have the green for a brand new <b>quality</b> boat (Tartan, Cabo Rico, Sabre, Passport, Caliber, etc), go for it! <i>Somebody</i> has to keep supplying the used-boat market with good boats for me to buy in the future!
