I am often torn between the two. I would like to thank the speed junkies at OSO for getting me back on track!!!

I think its important to figure out what you like to do on the boat, and then get one that fits your life style. Always better to make yourself happy than to just impress others.

Sleep on it? Cook on it? Use the head? BBQ? Swim? 6 people for cocktails? Out in the cold? Only when its hot? Night? or only during the day? Weekends aboard? Two week vacations aboard?

Consider those things, and the answer will be obvious.

there are some really nice used 27-28 ft cuddys out there,that could satisfy your need for speed ,and still have a decent cabin,lose the porti-potty for a pump out head.

I would look into some older go-fasts. Alot of them have pump-out heads & even a small frig like the mid to late 90's Scarabs. My 43 had a stand-up head a frig & a hang-up locker. It was missing a genny & a/c. Mine has trip. 825's so it was plenty fast but I know there are alot of 38 Scarabs out there with the same equip. for far below the 100k mark. This is my 2 cents. I kinda went the other way.

it depends on what kind of speeds you are looking for. i went to a boat show last winter and saw a 25 crownline. i was so impressed with this boat. with a 496 ho it would hit 60 and it had a fridge,micro, enclosed head and a/c. boat show price was 75k on a trailer. if i would be a happy with 60 i would be on that boat now but i wouldnt be happy at 80.
