Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions
I was looking at a Swan today that was within our price range. The photos had me dreaming. But the 8' draft? As much as I wanted to own what was once my dream boat, I had to move on.
A few here mentioned Moody. I looked at two that were also in our price range. If they are as well built as some say they are, this may become our boat of choice. Of course, you can never know until you actually step aboard and see how she fits.
I had thought for years that Cambria should be on the list. At the boat show they had a Cambria 46 (or was it a 44?). It was so tight, it was hard to get around on and I saw a number of things that needed attention. But looking at pictures of the same boat and she looks like a dream.
