I'd get 25,000 cartons of Haagen Daz - not sure what flavour, though.

Re: What would you buy for $100,000?

Some Beneteaus try and emulate the racing hulls and are subsequently squirrely, while some tweak those lines enough to be more comfortable for the cruiser and defeat the purpose of performance.

For $100,000 I'd spend $30,000 on a boat, $15,000 on upgrades and keep the rest for a cruising budget.

Re: What would you buy for $100,000?

I'm assuming the OP has already set aside a cruising budget and the 100000 represents a fraction of his budget allotted for the boat.

If I only had 100k I agree I would buy a 30k boat

Re: What would you buy for $100,000?

I'll keep my 93 Beneteau. I am amazed at how well built it is regardless what people say about Bene's. It always amazes me how well the factory systems have held up vs some of the older boats that i have been on/worked on(70's & 80's). I think it is a very well engineered boat.
It sails well, maneuvers fantastic and is family friendly.
I'd love a 2013 Jenneau 41DS though. ($303k)
