The last 2 boats I bought new I had plenty of regrets from day 1, and having warranty work done from a manufacturer who's plant is 1500 miles away is quite annoying and time consuming.
With that said there are benefits/detractors to each but are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
Excellent points, Ted. It's not like driving it to the car dealer a few miles down the road.

What would most consider "entry level" costwise for say a 24-27'?

Havent seen pricing on new for say Baja, Checkmate or more custom like Rage, Kryptonite, etc so no clue.

I figure 28-30' would likely put you 80-100k pretty quick.
