We are considering the purchase of a 2000 Palm Beach 160 for my 16-year old son to use fishing back bays and calm inlets, and general inshore running around, at the Jersey shore. Aside from the company's website, I can't find any reviews on this boat. Does anyone have any thoughts on the boat? It appears in good condition, although we haven't been able to find the gas tank yet. I've requested a brochure on the new model from the builder. We are having the motor, a 1995 Johnson 70 hp two-stroke, surveyed, too. I'm interested in speed/handling, hull cracks/blisters, trim/listing, overall stability (it's on a trailer right now) and any other generic issues with the boat. The price and size are right for shoving into our slip with our Beneteau 373 sailboat!
