What's your price range? What year do you want? Do you prefer a certain brand of boat or motor? Do you want rough water ride or speed, or both? Clue us in a little more.

I like this one. But then again, I like to lean back and hold the tip of the rod between my toes when I'm drop shottin'.

Nothing like a nap when the sun is high in the sky . . . . 1:30 to 5ish . . . . then shake it off and back to it.

It's hard to do when you are in the wishlist phase but you should buy used (as long as you get a 4-stroke with low hours) --- unfortunately you almost need to look for boat/age/price combo that is the result of a recent death, divorce, or career event . . . . . happy hunting.

I've bought new and used in the last two years. I searched for quite a while and drove 1000 miles each way on the used one. Boat was an 08 Bass Cat Sabre and it looked like it came off the showroom floor and only had 90 hours on it. Great boat and I had zero issues for the short time I owned it. I decided I wanted a bigger and faster boat so I sold it and bought a new one. Personally, buying used I'd be very careful and don't necessarily trust those selling. There are lots of great used boats out there though and at the right price I'd buy used again. But just as important as the price the boat has to have been very well taken care of for me to consider it. If I was buying fairly new, say 2-3 yers old, I'd want an engine warranty or I'd rather buy new.

That really just depends on how much money you have. Lol. Pretty simple; do you wanna spend money on a new boat or do you wanna save some money and buy a used boat. I've bought used and had no problems and I've also bought new and had no problems.
