What you looking for?

I would go with hookers and blow with the 1st 380K then buy a used pontoon boat with what is remaining.

$400k makes a nice down payment on a $700k lakefront 4 bedroom on 1/4 acre here. That's what I would do.

It was a more than $400k but we recently decided between a new Intrepid or a Keys house on the water. The factor is that our 32’ Intrepid does everything we want out of a boat ... sandbar, cruising to Bahamas and Keys and some fishing ... we (the wife) don’t have desire to sleep on a boat. All that seemed like the perfect solution until Bob White moved in three slips down with his amazing Intrepid 438 Evolution!

I would only buy something if that 400 K was mine if it belonged to a Bank then I would not be spending it

I just paid $360k for a Cobia 350 cc build to start next month. Twin 425s, seakeeper, plus all the normal crap you add in. So if you are looking for a boat that might be an option. Already have a house on the water so didn't need that. A lot of people are going to say used Invincible, Regulator, SeaVee, etc. but I wanted new so went with the Cobia.

I did post a similar question though but specified CC $400k for which 35' Center Console

If it doesn't have a 1500+ (really, more like a 2500) mile range... It's not for me.

a good chunk of the college tuition that is barreling at me full speed, and a nice wool cap that fits my muffin head. Duluth really screwed me when they stopped making the XXL boiled wool sucker.
