Forget the steel hull reason, that is still not a good first boat. I see a lot of owner installed modifications that are not necessarily good for a beginner. Keep it simple with your first boat and then move up as you experience and skills increase.

Get yourself a Pearson or Catalina 30 for half the money and it will hold it's value much better.

Good luck trying to sell a dutch made boat that is virtually unknown.
