Default BEST Buy under 115k

Im selling my baja and I'm in the market for a new boat. I'm looking for your guys expiereinced opinion. Here is my requirements.

-Under 115k, probably need to buy new for financing term?(looking 20 yrs due to seasonal higher income)
-I don't care about cabin space. No overnighters
-No offshore running, mainly rivers and smaller lakes(lake norman and ERIE every once in a blue moon )
-Looking for alot of speed
-Build quality is a must (If the speed is there I don't see my needs changing anytime soon)
-I'm open to a cat or a V
-Open to 28-36ft
-I don't care about holeshoting(i'd rather keep my outdrive)

I don't know much about the smaller more "custom" manufacturers. Im just looking for peoples .02 cents and open to anything. I appreciate all your guys input and just wanted to say thanks for building a wealth of knowledge and experience on this site.

At 115k won't be able to buy much length new. Believe there is lots of value in quality used boats out there. Just take your time to look around and thourhly inspect.
I've owned 6 different V's 25-35'. The more length the better on water, towings the opposite. With price point in mind, I'd look at used 32' Active Thunders, 32-35-38 Fountains and 31-35 Formulas. Have Fun!

You won't necessarily need to buy new for a 20 yr. term. Contact some of the marine finance people on the board. You can get good rates on used. Just don't expect it from a local bank. You can get a lot more used!

There's a smoking deal on a slightly used 2008 288 Sunsation with all the bells and whistles in the classifieds. I've seen AND been on the boat in person and it's sweet and done right. Plus you get the best Customer Service of anyone in the biz with the Sunsation.

Asking price is 89K and change

+1 on ole Dave P. Walked us right through the financing on our Top Gun and we got a competetive rate on a '99 model boat. Great people to deal with.
