Why buy a new car and not a nearly new car? Why build a new house and not buy a nearly new house from someone else? Same answer for a boat.
Sometimes you want new, built as you want it with the options that you want, and you are willing to pay for that pleasure. Sometimes you buy a car, boat, house that is not exactly what you want, you add options as after market or remodel the house, and in the end you have spent the same amount.
You can buy a great used boat. You can buy a great project boat. You might find that they are one and the same. If you are happy....who else matters?
Buy what you can afford and what makes you happy.
