In V-bottom, I'd look at Black Thunder. 9' 6" and the extra foot really yields a lot of space.

There are a lot of wide CATS too. Pretty much any cat over 30 feet gets pretty wide. Check out Skaters, MTI's, etc.

I saw a 53' Airborne Performance cat that had TONS of space. YOu could put about 10 people in the cockpit. Even had a king side bed for close encounters with MILFS!

Correct!!!! But I should clarify by taking this one step farther.

It is OK to have a boat with a broad beam but not a broad with a broad beam.

I saw that Airborne Express up close and personal here in Michigan - it was a g.d. tank. Friggin' HUGE!

Whatever happened to those boats - I heard at one time that Skater bought the molds...

For 60,000 you're not going to find too many wide perf. boats. Mostly because they're all longer than 30 feet and have two or three engines. The Searay Sunsports come to mind. Maybe you could find an older 31 with 502 efi's. They're good for about 60 and are in that price range. 38's are a little more There are a few flat deck 43 Black Thunders around you could probably get for 70 or 80,000.

Mine'll be ready in about two weeks, with four Verado 275's. Just waiting for McLeod Seats; there was a problem, but I'm hoping their sterling reputation is accurate, and that they'll make it right.

Nice, a friend of a friend has one. It's up in Ohio for the summer, what a sweet boat. I'm sure you'll love it. Oh, and the quad Verado's look killer hanging from the back!

James...Just heard about the unfortuneate new owner of a Midnite with multiple Verado's, hitting a coral reef in the Florida Keys & tearing off so much of the bottom & lower-units, that the boat had to be totaled by the insurance company. Not to mention a $5,000.00 fine for damage to the reef. What a waste of a nice boat. He'll probably order another one though. Ed
