Question What Boat to buy?

This will be my first power boat. I have been looking at a few different ones. I would like to get opinions. I like the Donzi 26zx or 28zx,the Sonic 26 prowler,or Glasstream has a new boat 273 sport. Also I have considered a Baja 26 or 28. I would like to stay under $60k. If I get the Glasstream I can get it new otherwise the others will be used (2000-2004). I am looking for a boat that will be fast and has good quality. Thanks in advance.

i have an 02 25 baja outlaw. so far i love the boat. i think baja makes a good boat. the only bajas i like are the outlaws but thats just me. they made a 272 which is now the 275 but looks wise i dont like them. as far as the donzi goes. most 28zxs i see are twin small blocks. ive heard ggood things about them. tough to work on though. ive also heard good and bad things about the stepped hull. donzi is also i little more money then a baja. if you want a twin set up go with the donzi but if you dont then go with the baja.
