    Banana Need Help. Pick out my next 25 to 28 foot boat.

    Well my search continues. By boating season next year I will have my new to me boat.

    What I'm looking for is a difficult combination to come by, so any help would be great. What I'm looking for is an 88 to 98 25' to 28 foot powerboat. I have around a 30K budget. My perfect boat would be a 28 Scarab Excel but I've been searching for some time now and I'm having some difficulty finding a nice one. So I'm expanding my horizons from the Scarab Line.

    If I had the funds my choice would be a new Donzi 27ZX or 28 Nordic Heat but that's a little out of my price range right now.

    Boats it cannot be:
    Foutain 27 Feaver (I hate the beak)
    Donzi 26/28 ZX

    Here are my requirements:

    25 to 29 Foot "Go Fast" boat
    Single Engine
    Fast. Able to hang on Poker Runs. Around 65-70+ top speed
    Able To Handle Chop (Cheasapeake Bay) well.
    Usable Cabin. A cabin with vbirth and love seats.
    Sporty Lookiing Design.

    The boats I've been thinking about are:

    Scarab Excel 28
    Velocity 26/28
    Sunsation Aggressor 25
    Formula 27 Fasttech

    Any comments on these boats would be great. Also any other suggestions for boats would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm pretty much in the same boat......or not in one I should say

    28 Pantera
    28 Active Thunder
    28 Saber - if you can find one.

    With your budget -

    25 active thunder
    Maybe an old 28 pantera.
    28 Saber - if you can find one.

    I'm on the hunt for a nicely priced pantera or saber.

    From the ones you have listed -
    27 Formula or 29 Scarab.
