Re: Are Boats Built in the 70's Just Too Tired
No boat from the 70s is going to be in good nick unless EITHER had a recent refit OR continious maintenance and upgrades when necessary. But there are boats out there which have had one or the other and are ready to go.
REMEMBER it is still a huge buyers market.
I recently bought a 44 ft boat built in 78 which had had an extensive refit and was fully prepared for extended cruising for a little more than your budget.
