Hi all, from Australia

After a bit of boat searching, I think I've nailed my options down to a Carver 325, it suits my budget and style.
I'm unsure if the fuel consumption is too high for my use as I intend on doing a lot of coastal cruising but I'll work this out as I go.
I do like the style and accommodation in the 325 and of course, the price suits me well.

Welcome aboard Aussie! If you let us know what year and what power package you have on the 325, we may be able to give you some insight into reality of fuel consumption. My Mariner has Crusader engines, burning 22 gph at 3400 RPM. If I back off to 3000 RPM, fuel burn gets significantly better 16 to 17 gph. Takes a little longer to get to the destination, but less fuel burned than time wasted. Most efficient cruise is 3000 RPM, speed of 18 MPH, and fuel burn at 17 GPH. Have a great summer! It is the dead of winter here. -11C outside
