CRD Dawg Posted January 18, 2020 Report Share Posted January 18, 2020 Greetings All, After a lot of lurking and researching, I’ve decided to begin a search for a Master Angler 18. (Thanks again, by the way, to everyone that provided some perspective on the “MA 18 Questions” thread I started recently.) I have a budget of $15-20k max, and like everyone else, I’m looking for the nicest example I can find within my budget. A 2003 or newer would be ideal, but not sure if my budget will support that. I would consider a slightly older hull, but not really looking for anything much older than 2000, unless it’s a really clean rig. Not looking for any major projects (as dollars and time tend to pile up), but not expecting to find a mint garage queen either. Ideally, I’m looking for a nicely preserved runner, mechanically and structurally sound. Cosmetic requirements are secondary, but not looking for something that looks like it’s had a hard life. While 4 stroke power is nice, I’m more concerned with having reliable, well-maintained power suited to the hull. A well-maintained aluminum trailer is a must, as l live in Savannah, GA and expect that I will be traveling to find the right one within my budget. I know there are other Maverick and Hewes hulls that might also fit my needs to a degree, but please no alternatives initially, as I’ve kinda got my mind set on a MA 18 (21 is larger than I want or need). I realize my requirements are somewhat restrictive, so feel free to give any feedback on how realistic my “wants” vs budget are. Great community here. Thanks again for your consideration and feel free to "PM" me if you prefer. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
