    Hi New Member here ... Seeking Cruiser / Power Boat

    I never owned a boat before, ...well maybe a canoe and a tire tube being the closest.

    I am now seeking a 43' to 57' PowerBoat - decent speed and enough room for parties and comfortable for cruising.

    I've visited a couple of websites - and Fountan Power Boats. I really like the Fountain Express Cruiser 48' and Sun Seeker from 47 to possibly the 72' Predator.

    If anyone here with similar boats to these can post pics or helpful info, it would be appreciated. I am not looking for a boat which requires a crew. Does the Predator 72' require a crew?

    Thanks in advance.

    When you get into something you really get into it. Pretty big boats for a first timer, more power to you and you will need alot of it to move those hulls.

    Good luck with your search,

    I think you'll need a crew on anything bigger than 45.
    You surely won't be out by yourself.
    Your family and freinds avid boaters??
    ... able to handle lines while you dock?
    With great power, comes great responsibility.
