I looked at all these boats before i purchased. Velocity is this fastest (i like) becuase of its light wieght and padded bottom. (which turned me off (potatoe chip comments scared me away.) The Fountain 35 is almost as fast and has nice cabin (comparable to 32dom and 32 velocity) and will handle the rough stuff better then vel or the dom (padded bottoms). It will cost a little more then dom or vel but will have better resale. Now I am partial to the Dom should be little faster then the fountain, little slower then the vel. (keep in mind you picked 3 FAST boats) Sunsation has got best factory support even with a used boat give them a call and they will tell you about any boat they have built. IMO engine wise only look at boats you can get a warranty on the engines. Like this one 99 35 T/496hos (repowered can get warranty) asking $86,900 http://adcache.boattraderonline.com/6/9/6/82722596.htm

Fom your list I would pick the Sunsation.

Otherwise in a 33" I would pick a 336 formula or a 33 powerplay.

considering this is a family boat I would not pick the Powerplay. The cockpit and cabin are too small for family use. As an offshore runner it would be my first choice but not as a family boat.

If you just need 'some' cabin space, just for the kids to escape the sun, then anything will work. If you will be overnighting, then thats something else.

Sonic is a great boat, and will have a nice cabin.
I was just always turned off by the handrails that run along the windshield.

The Dominators don't have the most head room like Fountains becuase they're performance styling not SUV, but for a 32 that cuddy is the longest hands down. If you could jump to higher $$, the Dominator SS is the best of both worlds. Outside of that personal choice on looks etc.

YA SS DOES ROCK But if I couldn't buy new I would probally go with a 35 Fountain that boat should hit 80 with 496 ho's and should perform in the ruff stuff just as good as the SS just be slower The Dom or Vel isn't gonna cut thru the rough stuff like a SS or 35 fountain.
