Ladies and Gents,

In my perpetual search for a boat I like I have come across a few stories of people who have bought boats in decent condition and sold them years later for more than purchase price. Of course I would never expect to make more from the sale than I have put into it after maintenance and whatnot, but if I can sell the boat for close to what I pay for it I can justify buying a more expensive boat, IE, seeing it as more of an investment than a sideline hobby and potentially living aboard. I don't need to make money, I just need it to maintain it's value knowing I will keep it in excellent condition.

So my question is what boats maintain their values the best? All thats on my radar right now are Island Packets and Cheoy Lees.

*Sees a Morris, jaw hits floor*

Seriously, those are some beautiful boats. I'm in love. Keep em coming guys

My only reality check about those Morris yachts is that from my humble observation they seem to be aimed almost solely at the gentleman daysailer, and not a true long haul cruising. They just look cramped inside and lack some of the industriousness that I see in the Island Packets which seem to be aimed solely at cruisers with things like showers, large tankage, bulky bowspirits supporting 2 anchors, etc. It would be a crime against humanity to put a dingy or a lot of ground hardware on those Morrisses
