Buying a motor cruiser should be easy, but there is a mind-bendingly wide set of choices to make. Should you buy new or second-hand? Should you buy privately from a broker or from a dealer? Do you want displacement or planning speeds? Offshore capability, or low-speed manoeuvrability for river use? Cockpit space or accommodation? Performance or economy? Ease of maintenance, or a restoration project to keep you busy for three winters? Whether buying a boat for the first time or thinking of changing your present craft, this book will help readers through the process - not only the decision-making, but also the bureaucracy from the Boat Safety Scheme to the Recreational Craft Directive - so that they can forget about the technicalities and concentrate on getting the most out of one of the most rewarding pastimes in the world.
