So I’m from Texas, and I’ve grown up doing some inshore fishing here. I’m finally looking into getting a bay boat, but there’s a chance I may be moving to Florida in the near future. I was considering new but I believe the used world is going to be best for my price range. So I’ve found a nice 2015 nautic star 2200 fully loaded, t-top. With 120hrs on a Yamaha 150, well in my price range. But I also have come across a 2011 majek extreme 22 semi loaded, looks really clean, with a Evinrude etech Ho 250( Unknown hours, which I know will factor in) that’s even more in my price range. So I guess my questions are, how old is too old? Would a traditional newer bay boat be a better fit for a possible Florida transition? Or would a older, supposably better quality, more technical bay boat be a better bang for the buck and still transition well to florida fishing?
im not asking you guys to spend my money for me, but just looking for some knowledgeable insight into the used boat world.
With all this red tide and the market slowing down... it's a buyer's market right now. Take advantage of it.
