Default Couple to look at on www.riverbills.com

There is a 99 Carver Mariner and a 02 Chaparral 30 footer. Both are a little more than you may want to spend but considering their age and available financing for that class and age of boat you'd probably end up with the same payment as a least expensive boat, if your financing. These boats are very different from each other and represent the different kinds of cruisers out there. I've owned both brands. You would not be disappointed.

Looks nice. With any used boat, GET A SURVEY.

I have a very nice 32 wellcraft st.tropaz that has been redone in and out. Its across the river from port huron were the st clair river meets lake huron. The boat needs nothing and can be wash and waxed and put in the water.

Im selling only as i want a race boat or somthing i can turn into a 3 man bolster boat... Anyone want to trade for anything interesting

Default 3075 Cruisers

Bald Knob Marina in Illinois has a 2001 3075 Cruisers that has very low hours. The 3075 feels much larger than a 30 footer and is still trailerable if you need. Very nice cabin in the 3075. We looked at several a couple years back. I think it could be bought for around 50K. Not sure if it has a Generator but I believe the boat comes harnessed for one so it's not a difficult add.
