I would highly recommend looking at the boat in person, and possibly sea trial it too, while you are there. Remember, everybody's definition of "PERFECT" is different . I flew to look at one boat that the owners sent me many pictures. When I got there, I asked "where's the boat in the pictures?" The pictures were 4 years old! They failed to tell me that! If you try, you can probably find same day round trip tickets to where you want to go, or relatively close, for a reasonable cost, compared to the $$$ of the boat. I have bought some of the boats that I flew to look at, and several others, just shook my head, having had taken a day or two off work to go look. Small price to pay, compared to the suprise you may get buying without seeing it personally.
