Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat
You might take a look at the Niagara 42. Ticks most of the boxes on your list. Very well built, faster than you'd suspect, roomy, undeniably pretty, and a great motion underway. Buy a great one for 140k, a few upgrades, and cruise for 2 years on the balance of your 250k budget.
Or buy a new one from Bruckman Yachts for 600k
