Re: First time boat buyer

Welcome aboard. you're gonna like this place.

A well-laid out and well sorted 36 foot boat is not significantly harder to handle than a 30 foot boat. On the contrary, some find that the higher stability and bigger working spaces fo the larger boat make a novice couple's job easier.
A CS 36 is a GREAT choice, but you can't go wrong with a CS 33, either, at a slightly lower price point with arguably lower maintenance and dockage costs.

Buy the best boat you can find for 80% of your boat budget.
