Default Single Engine Boats

I am currently boatless and looking. A single engine boat may be my next boat. I want a full cabin and a large sundeck for all the Claymates. I would like to have a 1990-1999, 27 to 30 foot "Cigarette type" single engine boat. What would you recommend?

Feel free to recommend ANY single engine boat... not just the ones in the poll.

A 29 Outlaw would be a pretty big boat all around and I've seen some single engine examples running around. If performance is not an issue, that might be the most bang for your buck. I like the 288 Sunsations but they will be a little cramp for the Claymates. Fuel/maintenance scaring you away from twins or the upfront cost?

I'm gonna have to write in on my ballet too. None of my pics are in that list. However, Craney and I seem to be on the same page. Those three are the ONLY three under 30' boats with a single engine I would consider.

On a different note.....What happened to the Bullets and Sonics you were talking about?
