Elbert is right on target
Being from the southern u.s. I kept looking for charter , pleasure, bass and others designs. Just not conducive for the lay of the land, weather etc.
Panga or equal is preferred, just take a look around
I got a 25 ft center console, Bimini top, bilge, live well, lights. Simple . I did have a gps/ fish finder which after about month I didn't need often. Yamaha is the motor of choice , I had a Honda 90 four stroke. It came with the boat. New. Very dependable for me. You might want to get an extra prop. The bottom isn't soft in places.
Mine was almost new, so I got insurance, don't bother. It was covered when I was there. When I came home it was required to be in a chain link fence. I did keep mine at captain sharks when I was gone.
You will need a captains license. Not a problem. To get a title I had to own some land. I had a unit at grand caribe, but had not secured a strata title so I had one of the developers put it in his name until I choked up the dough and got the strata title. I enjoyed the boat more than a golf cart. Just my two cents
