2002 FV 270 vs 2002 232 Captiva BR
Good morning. We checked out a FV270 last weekend. We really liked it, but it seems so big after owning a 22' Cutty. It's been on the Mississippi so the bottom needs a good cleaning. Otherwise, very clean and well kept boat. The owner is a mechanic. He put in new AC Delco batteries, all new trailer tires, and new sea pump last year. Asking $19k, so it doesn't seem too bad. I think he has room to lower price also. Then, I found a 2002 232 Captiva BR with 350 Mag and captains call. I really like the layouts of the Captiva BR. He's asking $16k with trailer. I know the ride difference would be huge, but we live in Iowa and boat on Rathbun Lake, so we never worry much about really rough water. Maybe go to LOTO a few times. Any thoughts from anyone that is an owner of either of these? $3k difference really has me wondering.
