Default Looking for " cheap" offshore boat

I've been out of performance boating for a while due to kids, time, money etc etc. I still don't really have the time or money but I want to try. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun working on boats and boating when I was a kid and I want to give my children the same experience .i had a 24 banana with outboards in the past I might be willing to go that route again, as I am more familiar with outboards. I would also consider a 24x7 with an i/o . Lately I'm even thinking about an outboard 22 velocity . Just seeing if there is anything out there . My budget is low maybe like 3k-5k just to get started. It would be nice to get something that runs , but I know for my price range it probably won't . I've tried to get myself to buy a " regular " more family friendly boat , but I just can't myself to do it . Fishing boats just don't do it for me.

A "cheap" offshore boat will be the most expensive boat you ever owned lol


I have seen some old 24/7's in that range that needed some TLC but actually did run. Ya gotta dig deep but I'm sure somethings out there. Saw a decent Scarab 1 go for fifteen hundred on a trailer needing "only" an engine and it did have a drive (Bravo). .

http://www.yachtsalvage.com/Listings/YS150317.htm yep, link works. closed on ebay 300 or so bucks. reserve not met. i know 1k will get it. call brian you can ask what bids are in on it and he-they will tell you. tell him derek with the crownline pointed you at it. love the back seat. ultimate in utilitarian...of course you need to be near boston. you need to post your area, cuz a cheap boat becomes expensive if it is a thousand miles away.

I knew the word cheap and offshore boat should never be used in the same sentence , but I guess it grabbed attention . For some reason I can't view images on my phone , such as the one Level III chaos posted.

How about a 24x7 with an LS swap like the 24 Skater LS conversion thread? Sounds like he found some boating bang for the buck.
