    For pleasure. Don't care about bunks or galley, ideally no full bulkhead/door in cockpit, with cruising speed in high teens.

    Prefer less than 20 years old unless re-powered; OK if some updating required (TLC, electronics, etc.) but not interested in anything that was abused. Neglected, perhaps, but not abused!

    Some boats that interest me are:

    30 Shelter Island
    31 JC aka Eastern
    31 Duffy
    31 West Bay
    31 RP / Willis Beal
    31, 34 Wilbur
    32 Holland (LOVE THIS BOAT...all cockpit!)
    32 Mitchell Cove
    32 Jarvis Newman
    32 Wasque
    32 Judge
    30, 33, 34 Back Cove
    33 Fortier

    I am a cash buyer - already have someone lined up to buy my current boat, but want a boat this summer.

    That is quite the varied list other than length.
    Good to be open to different styles.
    Good luck.

    Beautiful Duffy! I should have mentioned that I have a height restriction of 10' due to a fixed span bridge - obviously open to making tweaks top of house, but might not make sense to pay for, then remove a lot of value that was invested.

    Had seen this fantastic boat before - trying to find a "softback" with no bulkhead and door.

    Certainly a well maintained boat and an excellent value for the price...Best of luck

    If you would like to see it let me know, it’s in my shop in Plymouth with the upper control station off.
