I think the one thing that is falling out the bottom of this thread is that the thing that actually makes a good boat is the buyer's opinion!

What works for Buyer A will be buyer B's worst nightmare, and vice versa. If you're seriously in the market for something, scrounge a few rides on similar sized craft, get the manufacturers to show you their offerings, then iou'll have a better idea about what you actually like / dislike, and can then decide.

As Pol says, if you pop the bonnet of a sKoda you won't need to look too far to find a lump of engine with the five circles beside the part number......
