BOAT UNDER £90,000
New boats become inexorably more expensive, but £90,000 can still buy you a very desirable secondhand boat. As ever with used boats, there’s a broad triangular trade-off between cost, age and size so if you fix one element (in this case the price) then the other two sides of the triangle move in relation to each other – lengthen one and you will lose out on the other. After that, the finer value considerations surround build quality, engine choices, performance and condition.
So this month we take a look at very different examples of those parameters, from an almost new but necessarily compact and petrol-driven 28-footer through to an older 45ft twin diesel cruiser that you could happily spend a month on board, via a beautiful sports boat with a strong celebrity connection and ending with what may just be the perfect compromise.
