Buying a boat

Postby pepdebollox Mon Dec 07, 2015 12:13 pm

I have a huge dilemma and $30000 max to spend, wanted boat for fishing/family stuff 5.5m to 5.75m mostly PPB and WPB but might want to dip toe in off shore. These are three I've been looking at

http://www.boatsales.com.au/boats-for-s ... nature-540


http://www.boatsales.com.au/boats-for-s ... usher-550C

How much lower than asking price is acceptable to offer?

Any tips and or ideas most appreciated.

With the 3 boats you have listed there my pick would be the Haines sig looks like value for money to me and a proven hull over time.

Have a look to see how long they have been listed for cause boats that have been for sale for awhile are always easier to get cheaper.

Also if it was me spending up to 30k on a boat i would like a 4stroke motor.

There is a nice 2000 model Cruisecraft outsider 550 in NSW for $29,000. That would be my pick of a family/offshore rig.

And mate i wouldn't call buying a boat a huge dilemma..

Cheers, Anth

The sig is worth 22 with a 2 stroke.

Thanks guys, not a lot of boats around at the minute with 4 strokes, the sig ticks most of the boxes and wont have to do much to it if anything. The raemarine has gone. Any more tips help suggestions are most welcome.

thanks all

That Signature sounds good but you will need to start saving for a Yammie 4 stroke 115 which will push that boat along Ok. I believe 2 strokes are rapidly becoming dinosaurs !

Chris.

Why does he need a 4 stroke to push the boat. Nothing wrong with 2 bangers. Looking a etec or optimax they are just as quiet and efficient as a 4 stroke. They do have a little smell about them but not bad but they are cheaper to buy and service plus they sound so nice. Each to there own
