In the summer of 2009, a friend and I started looking for boats that were slightly bigger than our 22's. We ended up with "yard boats" which were pretty much project boats. He got a Catalina 30, I got a Mariner 28. There are a lot of boats to choose from, but look at a bunch before buying. At the level you are talking, a survey may cost more than you are paying for the boat. We got the boats in Forked River, Nj, just north of you. My boat was in fair condition, but the engine didn't run. The Catalina was overall in good shape, but needed sprucing up. Saw everything from decks so soft the hull was deformed by the shrouds, to also some pretty nice Tartans and Sabres. I'm not a broker or anything, just a guy who picked up a relatively inexpensive boat.
Drop me an email, if you would like to discuss.
