If you could find something like this on your coast, it'd be in your budget, but 10 years older.

My wife and I chartered a Grand Banks 36 many years ago and loved it. Too much exterior teak for me to take care of.
May I suggest:

GB36s are getting affordable. Consider removing the teak deck and glassing. I’m close to doing that soon, I think. Occasionally a GB36 comes up with SS hand rails, which eliminate a ton of varnishing. Some folks paint over the teak rails, leaving the original finish to be restored by the next owner, should they choose to go that route.

Parks

You know the maker and know it’s a good boat so make an offer for $125,000.00 and see what happens. Spend some of that insurance money and some of the HopCar sales money and enjoy life, no kids to worry about so treat Parks to some fun in retirement. Go for it.

Al and Art, good suggestions, I'll keep them in mind.
Ray, I do love the GB, but removing the teak deck is more of a project than I want to get into.

You know I was thinking just that. The worst that can happen is they'll say no.

And they will probably counter. I would think this time of year boats up north don’t move fast. You may get lucky and I hope you do.

Haha, I wish. IMHO it's the opposite. There's more inventory in the South (Carolinas and FL). Prices are more likely to hold up North. Deals can be had but it's not a given just because we're in the offseason.....

What could be better than a Yanmar sing’in along driving through the evolution drive?

Most true stories started with rumors...

Ellis has a 32 listed with their brokerage that would make me very happy.
Problem is it's about sixty grand more than I'm comfortable spending!
I like that there is little exterior wood and lots of interior wood. Don't know anything about that engine.

There was also talk at my store about a 31 Bertram. I've always liked them but I want something with more living quarters inside. (I've got to stop calling it my store.)
That 440 Yanmar has problems IF you run it close to rated Rpms and Heat dissipation is ignored. Pyrometer and close watch on heat issues its supposedly a non issue.
