I can recommend a 28 Powerplay as something that handles well in the rough, and makes a great first performance boat. I have a 28 w/ a single, which is extremely rare, most are twins.
Mine w/ a single is very well balanced. It always fly's flat, and I basically never use my trim tabs. Get's on plane easy, etc. Only thing it doesn't have for your list is enclosed head, but I imagine some others are rigged with one? Worth looking into for sure if you can find one.
Mine might be for sale in spring.
