BOAT UN­DER £90,000

Motorboat & Yachting - - FIND ME A SECONDHAND... -

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. Get your cheque­books ready!
