Looking for a new Boat-Suggestions/Help

Hey everyone somewhat new to the site looking for some help. I currently just sold my 222 Stinger with a big block. Wasnt a bad boat at all just not big enough for an ocean go'er. I live in mass right on the water and looking to head to block and the vineyard. What should i get for a next boat. What should I look for. ANy1 have a boat for sale that would suit my needs.
I have 20K to spend I would like to do around 75 with the boat single engine with a cabin, just to sleep options not needed but ok. Ive been looking at a couple,

90 LS 242 Formula- BB 496 MAG MPI 17,000
90 Switer 25 SS - BB 454 MPI 12,500
25 Larson Senza Spectra- Step Hull- 454 (need work) 5000
1989 Scarab Excell (oso swap shop listing) 454 21,000

This is just a few that i have seen but always up for options and info is gladly welcome. Im never against learing thanks every1 love the site

Safe, 75mph transport to the Vineyard on a single for $20k?
Formula 242 is good. See the SS as well as the LS
Look at a Baja Outlaw or maybe even a Wellcraft Center Console.

Formula is a good choice! but making it go 75 will cost you 20k over the price of the boat...............

OH! OK! Then the Formula would be my pick. Very well built boat 24 degree bottom nice cabin. Most of them were very well cared for as they were very expencive to start with, Find one with bolsters and a big block. There are a lot of 242s out there with bucket seats and small blocks. good luck keep us posted.
