You might wonder how a $100,000 price can be construed as a great buy. Go ahead and price out 30-foot weekenders with fuel-injected twin engines, and you’ll see why the 300 is at the top of our list. “Cruiser” isn’t just a fancy model name here; the boat sleeps six – in a double berth, convertible dinette and a mid-cabin. The galley and head have elbow room. Up top the cockpit’s centerpiece is a U-shaped settee under a fiberglass radar arch with recessed lighting. Buyers would save enough money on this boat to ask for the optional rotating helm seat.
