I have as I said a twin step Donzi ZX ......with all the bells and whistles single screw with a 2006 trailer for less than $ 50,000 it is easily overnightable with a large cuddy and a potty to boot.

There are lots of good boats out there in that price range, make sure you test drive anything you look at and get a survey. I would look at a 32' Sunsation they are great boats and a great company.

The 2000 Pantera in the classifieds is a great deal if its in good shape and would be my first choice.

I've got a 1995 26' velocity (280). Its not officially for sale, but we're trying to buy waterfront right now so, $35k would take it. Its in near perfect condition and has a new this year (15hrs) 650hp 540 with MSD. A nice cabin with a porta-pot and nice cockpit interior I'd be taking a little bit of a loss, but the cash would help with the new house. And you'd have $$ left over.
