5 Used Motor Yachts You Can Buy For Under $200K

Affordable motor yachts for sale in the united states..

Motor yachts are powered by single or twin engines — some equipped with two to four pod drives providing added maneuverability and joystick steering in close quarters. They can make voyages across oceans, zip through large rivers, or navigate the Great Lakes. Motor yachts are perfect for saltwater fishing, overnight boating, and day cruising and can be anywhere from 40 to 100 feet long. Motor yachts can range in price from as low as $90,000 to upwards of a few million — it just depends on if it’s new or used, size , model year, and amenities.

If you’re looking for an affordable boat, we found 5 used motor yachts under $200,000, currently for sale with Denison Yachting . These picks, in particular, are the perfect vessels for liveaboards and extended travel.

1. 63’ Viking 1988

There are beautiful teak joinery and cabinetry throughout this motor yacht. You can access the flybridge using a comfortable and practical teak stairway with wide carpeted treads. (This is particularly handy for a steady walk up and down while carrying drinks or snacks.) A cozy cream-colored carpet was just installed on the main level in September 2020.

Every once in a blue moon, you may hear about a friend of a friend who bought a 20-year-old boat that’s in such good condition it practically has that new boat smell. RIP RAP is the perfect example of an exceptionally well maintained and cared for Jefferson Rivanna Cockpit Motor Yacht. The vast majority of her life has been spent in the fresh waters of the Great Lakes, yet she demonstrated her seaworthiness on a voyage along the Great Loop.

With that type of time on the water, most vessels show their age in the engine room. Yet it would be a challenge to find a boat with her experience in this excellent condition, both mechanically and cosmetically. This is your chance to be that friend of a friend who buys a used motor yacht under $200K. RIP RAP is for sale with Denison Yachting in Chicago, Illinois.

12 Best Catamarans Under 200k and What You Should Know!

yacht for sale under 200k

As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases. We may also earn commissions if you purchase products from other retailers after clicking on a link from our site.

Reading forums, watching youtube, and listening to yacht salespeople, I got the sense that there are  no good Catamaran boats under USD 200 000. I sincerely believe that this is wrong , and hopefully, after you have read this article, you will have a better understanding of which boats under 200k are worth looking into.

The 12 Best Catamarans you can buy for under USD 200 000 (Read below to understand why):

  • Gemini Legacy 35
  • Leopard 3800
  • Seawind 1200
  • Fountaine Pajot Bahia 46

Below  I will present more in-detail information  about some of these boats; I have chosen the ones that I have studied myself and feel confident enough to talk about.

This article is a result of the research I am doing; I am looking for a Catamaran in between $100k and $200k; the list above includes some of the most exciting examples that I believe also are the best options if your budget is under 200k. As I learn more about each catamaran on the list, I will update this post and share the knowledge with you guys!

2002 Lagoon 380, $160 000

This is the most famous and well know of all Catamarans; it’s been around for many years and has a large community built around the boat. It is easy to understand why this is the most sold catamarans of all time. Using that community to your advantage when it comes to repairs and general knowledge is excellent since it will save you a lot of money and time since many others have already made all the mistakes, so you dont have to.

It is known for being easy to handle and a stable platform both during ocean crossing and sleeping at anchor.

Blue Water:

The L380 is known to be a slow catamaran, this is due to the wide hulls and spacious interior, another concern I have is the somewhat low bridge deck clearance . The low bridge deck clearance makes for a lot of noise while going upwind but it is also what makes the saloon so roomy. Taking the Lagoon out for day trips I found this boat very comfortable with a well-planned interior (video below) but a little on the sluggish side for me.

In summary, i believe this catamaran is perfect for coastal sailing and totally ok for Ocean Crossings.

yacht for sale under 200k

The Lagoon 380 is not in any way an unsafe boat, but I would like to discuss a few things that I have come across during my research of this boat.

The L380 doesn’t have dedicated bilge pumps ; this might be true for newer designs, but they are nonexistent for the older ones.

As a rule of thumb, when it comes to safety, you want back-ups because when you need a safety device such as a bilge pump, you want it to work and operate effectively. I have experienced this firsthand when I got a big hole(long story for another time) in my boat, and I had to use all the pumps I could. What happened? of course, one pump broke, but since I had back-ups, including a manual hand pump, we were able to stay afloat.

If I hadn’t had any backups, this story would be very different.

The video below shows a Lagoon 380 i visited a few weeks ago and why im now looking for something different!


The Lagoon 380 is by many the preferred options when it comes to making a boat your home. It is roomy and allows for wide berths(beds) and a big galley(kitchen).

It is also known for being an easy Catamaran to maintain and service. One example is the ease of doing repairs on your engines. To exemplify this ill, give you a quote from the owner of a lagoon 380 called  Indigo Moon

“…  I can change the entire seawater cooling pump on one of my yanmars in less than five minutes, literally. “ Owner of Indigo Moon discussing the simplicity of engine repairs

2013 Gemini Legacy 35, $188 000

The American made Gemini known for its small beam, making it fit in a standard slip and making it possible to be lifted out with a regular travel lift found in many marinas.

This also means that  it can be transported by truck across the country , which is very uncommon in the catamaran world. They are built by the thousands, and due to their small draft (34 inches) can go right up to the beach.

The Legacy gives the owner the possibility to enjoy warm coastal waters in a cheap and manageable way. For this type of circumstance, it is for many the perfect choice. The boat is easy to sail and a walk in the park to operate in the marina.

yacht for sale under 200k

Although it has been done, the Gemini is  not really up for the task of serious bluewater sailing , so having a discussion of safety needs to be in the context of coastal waters.

I believe that the Gemini Legacy is very well suited for coastal waters , where the need for handling big waters is a minimum. If it were in the blue water category, I would discuss trampolines instead of the solid deck.

But for coastal waters where there is a higher risk of running aground than of big seas, the small draft really is useful since it will allow you to go to places where monohulls can not allowing you for a safer and better experience.

The small bridge deck clearance is also something that is more suitable for coastal weekend sailing!

This doesn’t mean that you can’t go to the Bahamas or BVI from Florida; it only means that you have to plan your trip to make sure you dont get into bad weather offshore.

It is definitely possible to live aboard a Legacy and enjoy it; it’s not a giant boat, but it has been done, and  this couple  is an interesting example of that.

The cockpit is big and allows for much more social activities than on let’s say an offshore monohull, which is tiny compared.

yacht for sale under 200k

2002 Dean 440, $185 000

Just as many other “small” boat builders, Dean Catamarans are built out of South Africa. South African catamarans tend to have less bridge deck clearance, but this is probably one with the biggest, and as far as I understand, it is not a big issue with bridge deck slamming on the Dean 440.

Dean Catamarans are known for their excellent build quality and structural integrity, making them great for big ocean passaging and heavy weather.

In combination with the reputation for speed, this makes for a great cruising catamaran; the only downside might be the volatility in price compared to the more commons boats such as Lagoon or Leopard, which tend to be more stable price-wise.

Ensure you get a reasonable price on your Dean, so you get all of that money back! And if you are on the hunt for a smaller Dean cat, I suggest you check out this sailing couples channel Sailing Lady Africa .

yacht for sale under 200k

2001 Lagoon 410, $ 199 000

Much like its little brother, this boat is loved by many, it is very spacious and like its brother also not the fastest thing you can get. Sailing upwind will also not be the most exciting thing you will do on this cat.

Researching this boat read a review stating that this specific model tends to pitch less than other ships of the same size, I’m not sure but if you are prone to seasickness then maybe this might be something to dive a little deeper into

The lagoon 410 employs big trampolines instead of a solid deck; this is a big deal for big ocean sailing. One possible catastrophic situation is to bury the bows in a wave and then have the boat pitchpole, creating a potentially deadly situation.

Many would argue this cat is perfect; it’s big, with plenty of room for storage such as scuba gear, surf gear, etc.

With its eight berth layout, you can bring your family plus the neighbors family and still have plenty of room left. I think this is one of the coolest boats around.

And with those giant sugar scoops at the back, there is nothing id like to do more than go for a swim and then climb back up on one!

NOTE: Lately, there have been some issues with Lagoon bulkheads, so make sure you check them thoroughly before buying. For more information, I recommend you watch this lagoon 450 owners youtube channel .

yacht for sale under 200k

1997 Manta 40, $190 000

The Manta is a well-built boat able to cruise around the world ; compared to the Lagoon 410, it’s smaller and offers less space for your gear. In addition, it is said to be one of the most sturdy builds in the 40ft length region.

The Manta also has a very shallow draft, at 3 feet 8 inches; it gives the captain the ability to go almost anywhere without the risk of running aground.

The boat also offers ease of servicing since the engines are located under the bunks in each hull, and access is excellent even if you’re a tall person.

Equipped with the correct offshore gear and skillset of the crew, this cat will take you wherever you want to go .

The Manta 40 is not a “true” 40 ft boat. It is more of a stretched out 36 ft since the older ones where almost flat at the stern, and adding sugar scopes made it the few extra feet to qualify as a 40.

The Manta has a higher bridge deck clearance than many, which reduces the well familiar pounding noise from a cat heading into the waves.

The boat is configured for short-handed sailing , which means that all the lines go all the way to the cockpit; the lines are color-coded and stay clear of the seating area.

All the adjustments you need to do underway can be made from the cockpit, thus minimizing time outside the cockpit’s safe zone.

Compared to other boats in the same length category, the Manta is narrower and offers less space to store your gear, but at 65″ headroom in the hulls and standing headroom, there is plenty of room to stand tall.

2001 Prout 38, $199 000

Prouts is and old English manufacturer that went bankrupt a couple of years ago.  They are well known for their durability and excellent build quality. 

They are not the fastest thing you can find, not even compared to other cruising catamarans, but they probably are amongst the boats with the best reputation.

The Prout 38 is a true and tried bluewater boat  with many circumnavigations under its belt. Its bridge deck clearance is low, which should mean a lot of slamming, but according to the review of a couple of owners, it supposedly isn’t a big thing.

The reason for the low bridge deck clearance and the odd-looking nacelle under the boat is to get a more stable boat; they moved the center of gravity lower.

Prout achieved more headspace and lowering the center of gravity by reducing floor height.

The boat is a massive and sturdy thing; some might even say over the top sturdy. The Prout also uses fixed kells which is an excellent way to protect your propeller when beaching the cat(or running aground)

A solid deck is used in place of trampolines. But instead of a squared full deck, they have cut out the foremost part making the bow have a three-edged look.

This reduces the deck area, which is useful for removing water but is unfortunate since it also removes living space.

As I have mentioned, the sturdy build adds structural integrity and keeps the boat from falling to pieces,  but the downside is that the ship is cumbersome and doesnt have that excellent loading capability.

This means slower speed and not being able to outrun lousy weather as good as a faster boat.

Prout made the 38 models be able to fit three couples; id says it is possible, but you shouldn’t expect as much room as you will get on a Lagoon 380 or 410.

2008 Leopard 38, $200 000

I feel this list wouldn’t be even halfway complete if I didn’t mention the Leopard 38(or 40); this boat is one of the top ships out there; together with Fountaine Pajot and Lagoon, they are the most successful boatbuilders of today.

The Leopard 38 has managed to create the right balance between performance and cruising/comfort. 

This cat does not have, the very common problem with low bridge deck clearance induced slamming, while at the same time being a very stable platform, this boat, I believe, will take you anywhere you want to go.

Interacting with people that live abord their Leopard, I often hear how easy it is to trim the boat and how nice and quick you put a reef in the sail. This can all be done from the cockpit, which reduces the amount of time you need to be in danger from big waves when the seas are big.

The  big engines  are also a safety factor since they will take you upwind at around 7kts(of course depending on winds and currents, etc.) and gives you the ability to avoid bad weather.

Not only is Leopard 38 a comfortable home on the water, but it is also  straightforward to maintain and service,  something that is very important since you’ll be doing a lot of it.

As anybody who has ever lived on a boat knows, 50% of your time will be dedicated to maintenance and repairs, that’s just how it ends up being 🙂 But this boat is perfect for that in many ways., firstly there are soo many of them built which means that there is a lot of information and forums where you can ask on how to fix stuff.

Secondly, the spare parts are more likely to exist in the local shipyard, which is a big deal since shipping spares to a remote destination usually is extremely expensive.

Getting the right boat is tricky; if you feel you need more info on how to buy the right boat, check out  this Buyers Guide .

10 Best Catamarans Under 200k

10 Best Catamarans Under 200k

Are you looking for a catamaran to enjoy with your friends and family on weekends, or summer vacation, or maybe to liveaboard? If yes, catamarans are large yachts that provide many luxuries, but that doesn’t mean you will have to destroy your savings since there are many great choices under 200k. Of course, quality isn’t cheap, especially when it comes to a life of luxury on the ocean. However, we have carefully selected the best catamarans under 200k that are both elegant and economically viable.

Price: Used From 150k to 400K

The Lagoon 380 is one of the best catamarans ever produced. By 2013, over 700 of these boats had been delivered globally. It is regarded as the baby of the Lagoon company, as it is the smallest but very comfortable even for a liveaboard family. This boat stands at 37 feet and is regarded as the benchmark for 40-and-under feet catamarans.

It was designed by the renowned French-based naval architectural company, VPLP, this boat features a simple and efficient deck layout, a circuit vision in the rounded saloon, a cockpit equipped with a real outdoor lounge area, a structural beam that provides easy access to the sea and life raft, three or four cabins which are very bright (due to the large hull windows) and can accommodate up to 10 people. The galley is located between the cockpit and the saloon. The engine room is distanced from living areas and perfectly insulated for maximum comfort. 

You can find a Lagoon 380 in good condition for around 200k, which is a phenomenal deal. At this price range, this is an affordable luxury because it is comfortable with enough amenities. In addition, it has amazing interior woodwork designed by X. Fay. The design, technology, speed, safety, and great navigation make it a whole lot more appealing. The vertical glazing provides better protection against the sun and optimizes space and headroom. The Lagoon 380 is definitely worth your time and money; make sure to check one out if there is one for sale in your area. Also, because this catamaran was very popular when it was released, there are many for sale on the used market. Personally, I believe that the Lagoon 380 is the best catamaran under 200k .

Nautitech 40

Price: Used From 180k to 500k

At 39 feet, this catamaran has redefined the living space of an affordable cruising catamaran. Designed by French naval architect Marc Lombard, it features a deck saloon combined with a cockpit lounge, which is quite unusual as they both suffer from lack of space. The deck, cockpit, saloon are all on one level. It’s elegant, has great light, and is extremely maneuverable with two helms for exceptional visibility.  

This boat is priced between $200k and $500k on the used market, depending on location, built year, and condition. It is equipped with 3 or 4 cabins depending on the version with a huge owner’s cabin on the port side. The cockpit is covered, which provides adequate protection in all kinds of weather; this especially useful if you are looking for a cruising catamaran all under 200k. Also, it offers space for up to 12 people, so you will never be short of space. It also has an amazing deck layout with the opportunity to sunbathe. The elegant line gives the boat a sporty look. This catamaran is beautiful, and if you can make a small compromise to your budget, you should clearly check one out; you definitely won’t regret buying one.

Nautitech 40 Catamaran

Price: Used From 170k to 250k

The Leopard 38 price ranges from around $170k to $250k, depending on age, condition, and location. This boat is very easy to maneuver(even with a limited crew). This catamaran was a collaboration of designers Robertson and Caine with Morelli and Melvin. The 38 feet catamaran features a large cockpit with an outside dining area, versatile ergonomic seating for up to eight guests, and open transoms to make boarding easy. Equipped with four double cabins and 2-berths, a spacious saloon, and an aft-facing galley with a serving window overlooking the cockpit area. 

As you can see, this is a beautiful catamaran from the exterior and then down to the interior with high-class woodwork. Also, thanks to its built quality, ample space, and the abundance of natural light thanks to its huge windows, it is ideal to be used as a liveaboard catamaran.

Leopard 38

Fountaine Pajot Belize 43

Price: Used From 200k to 300k

Standing at 42 feet with a beautiful shape, this boat is famous for how well it cuts through water with ease and its great sailing performance. The Belize 43 is equipped with clever tricks for greater sailing ease and can be easily be operated by just a couple of people. The sails are easy to hoist and haul; it also offers a great stable platform without compromising sail performance. 

The boat features four large double cabins and 2 very pleasant single cabins alongside four heads. The hull also offers plenty of storage space and has a maximum capacity of about 10 people. Joubert-Nivelt designed this boat to be as light as possible without having to compromise stability and easy to maneuver.

With a starting price of around $200k, this catamaran is said to be the fastest in her class. You are guaranteed to spend exceptional day(s) or week(s) on this boat.

Broadblue 38 Catamaran

Price: Used From 150k to 400k

Broadblue is a United Kingdom-based company at Thornham Marina, Emsworth. The company is famous for achieving the perfect combination of performance, speed, luxury liveaboard, comfort, and safety. This 38-foot catamaran price ranges from around $150k to $400k. Designed by Stuart Davidsen, it has lots of spaces, storage or not. The saloon and cockpit provide spacious comfort for 6 people, with all-round visibility whether at sea or in the harbor.

The most popular layout of this catamaran comes with 3 double cabins and 2 v-berths and, as usual with cats, a very spacious saloon. The boat has superb woodwork in the interior with lots of amenities that could afford one the life of luxury when cruising. This a very popular catamaran on the used market because of its great value-for-money. Honestly, this design looks a bit dated on the outside, but they are very comfortable and well-built.

MacGregor 40 Catamaran

Price: Around 100k

The MacGregor 40 was designed by designer and builder Roger MacGregor; as you probably understood already, he also named the boat after himself. With a price of around 100k on the used market, this 40-foot cat is astonishing for many things. It is a fast catamaran with cabins and has enough space for a weekend trip with a simple mast raising system. However, its sensitivity to moderate winds, lack of storage space, and difficulty of handling are reasons people become wary when getting the MacGregor 40. 

The galley and saloon are well equipped with the finest of craft from woodwork down to the electronics; you would certainly love the deck layout for sunbathing and a whole lot of other water sporting activities. This catamaran is for someone who is an adrenaline junkie looking for the fastest catamaran under 200k but not necessarily the most comfortable one.

Gemini Legacy 35

Price: Used From 150k to 250k

This is the most successful cruising catamaran ever built in the US. Since it was first built in 1981, this American-made boat has been the most family-friendly performance cruising catamaran in the world. The Legacy 35 has more interior space than most 40-foot monohulls and costs a little less than an average monohull, while it stands at only 35 feet. The cost varies from $150k to $250k, depending on the dealer, age, condition, etc. Like most catamarans, it is easy to maneuver, fast, family-friendly, great to liveaboard but affordable. 

The hallmark for a Gemini design is the shallow draft. Legacy 35 has a 34-inch draft that allows the boat to be pulled right up next to the beach or anchored in small protected coves.

Lagoon 35 CCC

Price: Used From 120k to 200k

The premier multihull in the world, the Lagoon 35 CCC, is built in the United States to have a hull constructed using the SCRIMP infusion method of elimination. The ‘CCC’ in front of the name stands for Coastal Cruising Catamaran. This boat is a collaboration of Jeanneau and TPI, then conceived by American architects Morelli and Melvin, who have expert knowledge in the field of designing catamarans. Morelli and Melvin chose performance over comfort. Starting at $120,000, this boat combines an excellent layout and high-quality finish with a capability of sailing fast. 

The 35 feet stylish and beautiful catamaran is complemented by the size of spaces in the boat from the large cockpit that can comfortably seat eight people. It has three or four cabins with an amazing deck layout and a comfortable view, even though the designers never prioritized that. The exterior, though, is just as sleek as the interior and one reason the boat will be enticing. This boat is as affordable as luxury can get. Whether you are looking for a weekend catamaran to spend some quality time with the family or as a liveaboard, this catamaran will be perfect for you.

Final Thoughts

A great cruising or liveaboard catamaran for under 200k? Is that even possible? Many people don’t think so; I believe I just proved them wrong! As you can see, some of these catamarans cost more than 200k on the used market, but I made sure the starting price is under the 200k mark, as the title suggests. However, do not be swiped away by the good price and rush to your checkbook. Take your time, take her out for a spin, and get her surveyed; it’s worth the extra cost to get your mind at ease because a hidden problem can cost tenths of thousands of dollars. After you make sure that everything checks out and you are aware of any problems, you can write the check and take her home; or make her your home, it’s up to you!
