Looking to purchase a 37-44 boat to live a board and hit the Caribbean in. We are not made of money, but are planning on paying 100% cash for our boat. Hopefully in the 35-45K neighborhood. Just looking to get some advice on places typically known as bargain areas ESPECIALLY if showing up with cash.
By the way we live in Atlanta. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Check the internet listings of boats for sale and already in the islands. Many vendors are desperate to sell, while there boat turns at anchor. The marina and you can inspect them for sea worthiness, and make low offers. Then enjoy your purchase right away.

Actually, The U.S. is typically known as a bargain area. Do a search and you can find all kinds of questions from people all around the world, wanting to know about buying a boat in the U.S., because--they say--the boats here are so much cheaper than wherever they are.

Unless you want to buy a boat in some specific area, because that is where you want to start your cruising, then I think looking around home is probably your best bet. Florida, in particular, has TONS of used boats for sale at bargain prices right now.
