All good suggestions so far but I feel I have not described what at I am looking for.....It needs to have a cuddy cabin ( have a little 17 month old that needs to get out of the sun and nap when needed , be narrower than 9 ft or so ( has to fit in the warehouse ) would like to be used but in good condition . I like the newer suggestions you have made but out of my price range.....would like to stay under about $ 70,000.00 iI know it is tough but that is my budget. I will most likely buy this winter after the season when lots of stuff is for sale, unless something really great comes along. Hoping for it to have 300x's or I would not mind it having the 250 EFI's on it either......shed some light here.............................................. .................................................. .............

Check out renegade. I personally like the lines on the 29 better.

Look for 2004-05 or so used 30 Concepts. They will be in your price range. Or an older 2000-2002 possibly used 33/36 Concept. These are narrow deep V CC's. You will not find 250xs or 300X's in your price range and most of these boats will have 225 Optimax and 225-250 efi's. I'd go with Opti's as they are more efficiant and have better resale when you want to sell and upgrade.

The 29 Renegade is another awesome choice too and seems to be a little deeper gunwale.

"Performance" and "Center Console" are a contradiction in terms.

If that is the hull I think it is and you are gonna make a CC out of it put me on the list for one. I told him to make the CC version of it but he never listened to anyone.

We just saw one of these last weekend on our lake. The tip of the bow was like 8' off the water at rest! Amazing boat and rare for our lake.

We were getting beat-up from the huge boat wakes, but this thing wasn't bouncing a bit. This guy was tearing azz all over the lake and through the roughest stuff!
