With Southampton boat show looming I am thinking about treating myself to a new boat for next season (I feel the need for speed) and it strikes me that there may be a few 'specials' on offer at the show. Has any one any experience of buying at the major shows? With the high cost of attendance for the exhibitors I would guess it must be tempting for them to offer some attractive packages and come away with a full order book. Any more reviews in the pipeline on the forum ??? Warrior 165 - Predator - Endeavour - Pilothouse 500, any more news on Explorer ? Basic remit is Trailerable - sub 18' for use with a 50 - 75hp fourstroke - Open cuddy would be fine - as much as we love the Strikeliner there is a fair bit of unusable space as the cuddy starts quite a way from the bow and as ours has the full locking bulkhead which is useful - you cant actually use the space for anything other than storage. All thoughts and musings welcomed as always.
