Re: Advice on Beneteau 473 looking to purchase
I agree best deals are local.
But few have access to them.
Some marine trader will hear about them well before you.
And the OP can't operate locally: if he's after a 47ft cruiser, modern, he has to spread himself wide, even internationally.
Beneteau 473's are one of the best, if not THE best long range cruising boats for a couple in that price range. The 2 cabin version is outstanding. Storage space unbelievable. I would certainly upgrade to one.
They are often on the market and I bet there's quite a few in the USA alone... but that doesn't mean tbetes one in each marina, there may only be a few in each state.
So, yes, a local may do great local deals but in different parameters than "usual" folks looking for a boat.
