Hello,

I am looking to purchase my first boat. I have been in and around then since a very young age. However, now I feel it is the time to purchase my very first. I have done a good bit of research on what would be best for me.

In an ideal world I would love to have an Ankona or Beavertail. I live in the Sarasota/ Bradenton area so live bait fishing is what I love, meaning livewells for me are a must. I have my fiancé and two friends that are always invited so 4 person capacity is needed as well. Lengths of 16’ to 20’ are best with 17’ and 18’ being the sweet spot. A beam of at least 65 is also preferable as well as a center console being a must. I will be keeping the boat in my garage so I will definitely need a trailer along with it. Poling platform is necessary as well, casting platform not necessary. I’m aware all this is a tall ask and beavertails are usually above my budget but I’m looking for all this at 22,000 or less.

Thank you,
Michael
