Older or newer...what''''s best
I would only point out that the model years you are comparing are very different boats. The newer 35''s are basically a different boat. Not really an apples to apples comparison.
Re: depreciation, that''s a good concern to have. In my search for a boat, talking to friends, larger consideration of newer vs. older was commissioning. Most opinions were that 2-3 seasons, depending on use, was needed to fully "vette" the boat out, including initial warranty issues. On later model boats after that initial 2-3 yrs. of use, the difference in prices becomes a result of the intended use and how extensively fitted out the boat is. Upgraded electronics, etc.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
