I'm trying to buy a boat this spring, ideally $20-30k. I was hoping to get a mid to late 2000s model. So far, I've seen a few boats in the 1999-2001 range. They mostly seem overpriced for that age ($25k with 1000 hours for a 21 year Response). There've been a few priced more reasonably.
My question: it's still early in the buying season here (PNW, still getting below freezing occasionally at night). Do you guys think something closer to what I'm looking for will come on the market, or is this just a really tough year to buy a boat, and I should jump on something that isn't ideal (price, age, engine hours)?
I'm watching ski-it-again, onlyinboards, boattrader, and local craigslist. Anywhere else I should be looking? I'm limiting my search radius to about 1000 miles, so I could drive there and back in 2 (long) days.
