There are a number of new boats in that price range that will be in perfect condition some of which are from top notch manufacturer right here in Florida with a few here in the vacinity of Tampa Bay but they will be under 30 feet so the question is: What size and class of boat are you looking for that costs less than $70,000?

You may be trying to find a boat that is going to cost $140,000 in turnkey condition so one of those being liquidated for $70,000 or less is usually going to require a lot of work and money to get back into shape. People rarely find the Holy Grail and may spend a lifetime searching and never finding while other just stumble upon it without really trying.
