Oil and Gas

If you're relying on an engine rather than sails, fuel prices can make a big dent in your budget. So scout around for a fuel-efficient boat. As a point of reference, it costs about $400 to fill the 80-gallon tank of a 27-foot Chaparral with a single engine. For a Tiara 4500 Sovran -- a heavy-duty powerboat that is considered fuel-efficient -- it costs about $1,750 to fill its 350-gallon tank. Expect to spend about $300 for an oil change.
