One mistake that boat buyers make is thinking that they’ll find the absolute perfect boat. Some do, but the time that you spend making everything absolutely perfect should be spent sailing! Here’s the big hint….Choose the boat that has the MOST of what you want. Ask yourself….What am I going to be doing with this boat? What am I going to be using it for? You’re not going to go out and buy the fastest racer on the market for cruising with your young children!…..We will be sure to ask you repeatedly..”How are you going to be using your boat?”
