If you've looked at 90 o/o of the boats in your market you pretty much have to go outside your market. While you may not be able to sail it all the way home you should be able to get it close. You can always make an offer on a boat contingent on your personal inspection before acceptance. If you use a broker and by a brokered boat you should be able to get all the information you need to make your decision and the inspection will almost be a formality. That should give you a fairly large market as there are thousands of boats for sale in your area within an easy days drive.
