Which Boat??

by neil77m » 19 Sep 2019, 13:26

Hi everyone (new user & new post).

I have run jet skis for several years and I'm interested in buying a boat and want your experienced advice on the best options. I have a budget of around £35-40k, I would like to use the boat on the sea, lakes and rivers if possible. It must be 21ft or less (local launch restrictions) and have private toilet area (portaloo would be fine) for my wife and little girl. It will be used for towing skiers, inflatable toys and general cruising when on rivers or long lakes too.

The best value boat I can find is a Bayliner VR5 Cuddy but is this the right "all rounder" boat or is there other/better options?

Hi Neil, welcome.
That Bayliner is a lovely boat.
This Cobalt may be slightly too big but Cobalt build nice boats. Also look at Regal and Monterey they are equally as good.
