RE: Wanted 36-38 Trawler Motor Yacht
IF cost is a concern, here is a concept.
Large gas motor yachts are loved in the lakes , so they will have good value being SOLD there.
Many folks retire to FL , and other southern areas , where gasoline is less preferred.
Boats are 30% to 50% less valuable in FL , a boat that is less preferred will be the least loved.
Florida Mariner is a reasonable to advertise in magazine , with adds on line.
IF you don't find what you are looking for , it might be worth placing a wanted add and see what comes up.
The ride from MIA to Buffalo will be 1500 miles , or so, but on arrival the boat will be in far better shape , than one that just sat.
Happily the ICW is mostly protected enough that having a plaining or SD hull at displacement speeds will not be a bother.
And unlike Diesels gas is fairly efficient at 10% or 20% of rated power.So fuel use will be fine at 6K- 7K
