Default Best 32 CC for long term investment?

Looking to buy a 32 CC that I can leave my son when I'm dead and gone. I don't mind buying something I know 7 years from now I can repower and it keeps on going. I would rather spend my money on a good used boat that will be around forever vs a new boat that will be junk in 7 years. Any suggestions?

Boat and Long Term Investment are an oxymoron.

It makes a big difference if your budget is 75k or 350k. New the price will drop like a stone in 5 years. Offshore hard core,, nearshore, diving or pleasure? Without knowing I'd say buy something 8--9 years old. 80k or so. Repower with twins and new electronics. 150k all in will hold its value. Somewhat.

The 32 sea vee all day long. Fit and finish is above par and priced right.

No boat will hold value better than Intrepid. Fit and finish top notch, priced high but will hold value, so for long term it’s exactly what you need.
