I see you are from Palm Springs. Where will you boat; the River, the Pacific or both? Any of the boats discussed above will handle the worst Havasu/Mead/Powell/Mojave can dish out. The Pacific is a different animal. Consider where and what you will be doing with the boat, that may help you with the amenities and performance discussion. I have experienced every body of water I mentioned with a Sunsation and would be happy to answer questions you have.
