What boat

Hi all I need your opinions on what boat to get. I have been around boating all my life and now want to get my own boat. I'm thinking about 18ft. I have 7000 to spend. Does anyone have any views on what will be the best sort of boat to get.

many Thanks

Dave

As most people would say, depends on what you want to do with it.
