As we approach the one year mark of ownership of my 2003 50 SunDancer I suddenly have the urge to sell it and go with something completely different. So different that my wife won't even talk to me which should be a sign right there. Occasionally I try to convince myself that we'd have just as much fun on a different, much less expensive boat. The latest insane idea would be to sell the 50 DA, which could take forever, and buy a 48 Ocean Yachts. Yep, a 1988 no less with Detroit 671tib diesels. Hard part is the 50DA is seriously the perfect boat for us. I've spent the past 11 months making it absolutely perfect, not that it needed much at all. As she sits, there are zero issues. New hydraulic swim platform pump, fresh water talk leak fixed, props are now 30x32 and within the fuel burn range of what Tony Athens recommends, carpets have no stains, cabinets have no nicks, aft seating is in damn near perfect condition, etc. I took a ton of pics and even did a video walk through and thought to myself that I must be going crazy. The boat is seriously perfect. The upside to this crazy idea? Pretty sure it's only financial. I'm a bottom feeder when it comes to boats and if my first offer isn't insulting then it wasn't low enough. It's worked out well for me over years as I'm currently on boat #15. Been on this idea for a week now. Looked at a 48 this week and it could be my next victim. I do realize that when I get tired of the Ocean that will be a challenge to sell. To sum it up. A significantly older boat, with legendary smokey DDs, no bridge AC, no cockpit AC, no aft cockpit seating, etc. But....at 1/4 the price. Good thing I've got a spare bedroom.
