Buying a used boat...

Hello guys!

Last week-end, I've been to the exhibition "Boot" in Düsseldorf, Germany and drooled over sailing and motorboats. So far, I de-crypted the economic part behind it, but the technical is still the question. Does anyone got some tips for me how to decide wether a boat is for the scrapyard or wether its maybe an old beauty?

Of course, I do know to check for hits against the ground...

First, I wanted to go for a sailing yacht, but those are over the point I can afford and people reacted very weired when I told them I still have to earn money for 5 years to do so. In the next hall, there were motorboats and I looked at a "Bayliner". A pretty boat and quite affordable due to the exchange rate between the Dollar and Euro. SRP was 43000 EUR, exhibition special 34000 EUR and if somebody puts 25000 on the table its O.K. as well.
