    All I Want For Christmas Is...

    The Perfect Boat!

    OK... Here's the deal... As many of you know, I sold my 22-foot bowrider, and I plan to get another (bigger) boat in the Spring. Someone told me that a boat can be BIG, FAST, CHEAP (Pick TWO! ). With that in mind, I want BIG (30 feet or more, but under 10,000 pounds so that I can trailer it) and CHEAP (under $50K). If I want fast, I will go to Full Throttle Marine and drop some green there.

    I primarily boat on Lake Travis. I need a "wave crusher" to get from the ramp to the party cove (Devil's Cove). I need a large FLAT sundeck so that the Claymates can lay out and get some "all over" sun. I would like a twin-engine boat with Bravo drives (TRS drives worry me), so I am looking at 1990 and later.

    I am six-feet tall, so I would like a large cabin. I would also like an enclosed head for the ladies. I will overnight a few times a year, so it would be nice to be able to have (or add) Air Conditioning and Shore power. A swim platform is a must, but I guess it could be added later.

    While I like the "old school" look, I love a white dash. A dark dash in Texas is a bad idea. In fact, any color on "horizontal" surfaces gets very hot!

    Did I forget anything? Please let me know anything else I might want. Also, let me know of a particular model (i.e. Cigarette Bullet, Formula F-311, Sonic 31ss, etc.) that would work for me.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas, y'all!

    Year: 1990 or later
    Length: 30 feet (or longer)
    Weight: 10,000 pounds or less

    Comfort: A/C and Shorepower
    Access: Swimplatform
    Trailer: Triple-Axle
    Price: Under $50K

    Here is a Cheap 31SS. For the price you can put a trailer under it, and redo the dash in your price range.

    The boats you listed sound like they fit, except for the 50K part.

    The TRS drives worry me, but otherwise a nice boat.
