Default Newbie with some ???s

Hi im new to the forum and boats in general (never owned my own) Im looking to get a powerboat to use in the st Croix river in minnesota and a few other lakes around town. Im thinking i would like to get something around 25 feet with a cabin and would like to stay around 25 to 30k. Iv been looking at baja,donzi for the most part but like i said im new to boats so fell free to fill me in on what would be a good one to get. thanks much ditti

Welcome to OSO. Get the boat that YOU like the best. In that size and price there's a lot to chose from.

I think it would be worth your while to look into a Checkmate. The 25 convincor is a great boat, you get alot for the $$$$$.

I think you should get a 25 Daytona and an inexpensive tent. Cabins in 25'ish boats suck so you might as well go fast

That's good ****! Well a tent is also an option but id like to sleep on the boat though. What do you guys think about the donzi 22zx? like a 1997 or something or the baja 21-23ft hammer and outlaw cuddys? what would be a better quality boat for me? Btw whats a Daytona 25 look like? thanks ditti

i've got a 24ft Fountain CS... smaller cabin than the baja or donzi, but rare and much faster than the stock competition in that price range. Sounds like a 25ft outlaw would fit your criteria the best. I live and boat on lake Minnetonka... hope to see you out here sometime in the new boat
