Entry Level Cruising Boat

Hi, I watched you on TV last night. Wow talk about having a light bulb turn on in your mind. Anyway can you tell me what a good boat would be to start out with would be. I far from being loaded. My idea would be to live on my boat and make my way south. I’m at the very early stages of planning so knowing what boat I should be looking at is a starting point. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can pass on.

Hi Robert:

There is no simple answer to your question. I would take the time to look at lots of options to establish value. Then, buy the simplest structurally sound boat you can find. Wait f or the right situation where there is pressure to sell. Sound boats which are cosmetically challenged, where you can clean things up yourself, are always the best deal. Good Luck
