I'm boat shopping for a used boat. Many are garage kept and look beautiful after 10-12 years of age. I plan on keeping the boat on a lift. It was suggested that I buy a white hull and stay away from the colored hulls because they fade...with the dark blue being the worst for fading. I've seen 2 yellow hulls for sale that look great, but again, I'm concerned about the fading. With that said, not all manufacturers are the same quality, and I'm told Sea Ray is among the best boat hulls made. That's why I want to buy a Sea Ray. I just want some advise if I should stick to a white hull. BTW, the Sea Ray Plant in Flagler Beach FL was in my town at least 20 years. It closed about a year ago and made some of the larger model Sea Rays.
