Boat market is crazy, curious for $25k give or take, what would be a comfortable sea worthy walkaround 21-23ft with a hard top and outboard it can afford?

If there was only a website that listed boats for sale where you could put in boats available between 21-23 feet and less than 25k and you can narrow it down and come back for specific feedback on certain brands/models that catch your eye

I'm seeing a few pro lines and sea pro's mid MY 2k at this price point. Doing some research now, my boat will probably go to its new owner this week so I'm out hunting.

I am sure you can find an early 2000s 21' Pro-Line, Seaswirl or Trophy walkaround in your budget. Curious, why not just keep the boat you have now? Other than outboard, what is the motivation?

The outboard is probably the #1 reason. Only this year that I started to take my 2 kids 7 and 8 out on the boat, as little as they are, they take up more space than we do. With the wife at the helm and 2 guys fishing and trying to teach the kids how to fish, the large engine hatch in the way, it's a little inconvenient. On top of that, the 5.7l in the small engine bay of this boat has literally bled my knuckles to death this past few months of maintenance. I parked the boat for many years of no used, when I brought her out of hibernation, I literally had to go over every inch of the motor and outdrive. OTH, the 15hp kicker that hung on the back of the boat needed nothing but fluid change, spark plugs (just because) and it fired right up. There are those that thinks I/O is superior but for me, owning boats with one for more than 20 years now I think i want to try something different.

The 2nd driving factor is now that I got the wife into it, she agreed to spend a little more money on another boat. I sold her on the idea of more room for the family (maybe this excuse tops the first, I don't know LOL)

Would if I could. 25-30k is where I'd like to stay. Can't justify spending as much on a boat as I do on my cars.

You're in the wrong hobby my friend Replace "cars" with house, then you'll be closer.

plenty of pilot house and walk around parkers for sale around here in the 25-30k range. Another nice one is the Kencraft 220WA, plenty of prolines, gradys.

Depending on where you live, if I trade my house for a boat, I can get a decent yacht. I spend more time in my car than I do in my boat so it only make sense to put my money there.

I'm prowling through "B**TT****R and not coming up with much. There is a nice looking 21ft parker but the price is in the mid 50's for a 2006. As I say market is crazy

Don't know if a pilot house is doable but I've seen 2010ish 21 DV Steigers in that budget. C hawks too. Both of those companies make cuddys too.
