    She's fully equipped for cruising and can cross oceans easily. Compare the equipment to a stock new boat. Every boat that comes into the marina, it seems they paiid $80,000-100,00 for them and they don't have any more equipment than mine. More room, yes.

    But in a 30 footer everything costs less, especially marina fees and parts.
