I won't buy a brand new boat, I don't have the cash to get what I want in a new boat and I can't stand taking that big hit. Yes it takes longer to find a used one to be set like you want. I looked for a year and a half for the boat i have now. My boat new now would be over a mil. I spent 250K you can't even get a loaded up 42 Fountain with big power for that much, plus I won't loose as much when I sell, My boat has already taken it's big hit. But it still looks like new.
