I've been looking for it seems forever for the perfect starter big boat. While my budget is not one of great proportions it does allow me to have some selection.
I have narrowed my search to two possible boats. They are both Bayliners one a 3270 and the other a 3217. Priced on the lower end of the spectrum but meet my needs and the floor plan works for the family. I have yet to find a great lakes boat which can compare to this wrt floor plan and affordability. If there is a hidden gem i'm missing or overlooked please let me know.
Hoping to have one sitting in the yard in a few weeks the possibility of reality has me excited to say the least. I have been a Supra inboard boat owner my whole life. The simplicity of the drive line and boat is what I love the most and has me heading towards the trawler.
Things seem to be flowing in my favor. I have been wanting a diesel powered boat but the price really goes up and the boats are mostly junk till you get to the 40k mark. Came across a nice pair of 427 Grey Marine diesels with trans which I will more than likely purchase before the boat and have them refitted in the new one in time.
Love the site.....
