    I thought you had all but bought the 318? We went thru the same ordeal you are going thru and made the same choice. We came REAL close to buying the Four Winns but a few things kept us going back to the Sea Ray. Everytime we looked at the boat either my wife or myself said at least once "but the Sea Ray is...."

    As far as power choice, if you want inboards I think the biggest you can get is 6.2s. You can get 496s with a bravo 3 if you want I/Os.
    Ours has 350mag inboards and I wish I could give you a real life explanation of how it runs, but the only time we have ran it was during the sea trial. I believe we were cruising around 23mph @ 3500rpm and 23 or 24gph.
    I'm sure somebody that has USED their boat can give some real life figures.

    Good Luck and keep us posted on your progress

    Yeah...I was really close to the 318 until we went to the boat show and was able to compare them side by side. The FourWinns looked great in their showroom but as soon as you stepped on the SeaRay you noticed the 'finishing' is so much better and if the cosmetic stuff (TVs, carpeting, cabinets, etc) are better than the stuff you can't see is probably worth the upgrade in price.

    This is the quote I have so far...(BTW I'm paying cash...so I'm hoping I can get an even better deal)?

    Sounds very high to me. I was witness to 2 320DA sales at the NYC boatshow, both equipped like yours plus the colored hull and 6.2's, BOTH signed for less than 190K.

    Wow, it's high

    That sounds very High to me too, I bought in 2006, ordered the boat and paid 187,000.00. For an ordered Boat that's great I didn't get the big TV that's all.
    I think you'd better shop around and I think you'll save a lot more ont hat boat.

    Sorry to mention...that is Canadian dollars...so right now it's like 1.15

    So the 213,000 Canadian is like 185,000 US...

    I'll beat the dead horse into jerky here...if you are set on new, buy new, but as a one time owner of an 02 320DA I bought used in May 2005, I just think the money on a new one does not make sense. Canadian or US dollars, depreciation is depreciation no matter how you cut it. Take what you intend to spend and find a clean used one with warranty and nearly no hours and put what you save into fuel, etc. ALl the new boat buyers may pile on, but the economics are on the side of a nearly new used boat purchaser, especially in what is a real buyer's market.

    Listen to the man

    Listen to the Man who maneuvers the THUNDERING CATHEDRALS OF TORQUE.....he is wise and a lil warped, but he knows what he's talking about, BUY nearly new used, it will save you thousands and you can put that mmoney into fuel you will need it, coming from somone who bought brand new, wish I'd have saved 25,000 or more.......

    The problem living in Canada...I've searched for almost 6 months and have only found 1 or 2 used 320s. I would like to get at least a '05 - the ones I've found so far have been in the 180k range, I can buy a little cheaper if I cross over to NY State but with the brokerage fees, etc. I'm back up to that number. Is it worth saving $30k and getting a boat that already has two full seasons on it??

    Good question, in your case my opinion is no, go with new. The most common reason for someone selling an "almost new" boat after a short time is because they had no idea what they were getting themselves into, and if that's the case then they also probably have no idea how to operate or care for a boat. That can mean neglect, even on a low hour boat. Sometimes that can mean it has problems or it could be a steal. It takes a lot of diligence on the buyers part to differentiate the two.
