I agree on the quality, speed and comfort. I like the Formula SS range but only have experience in the 330, one has twin 496's and the other twin 350's.

One thing I would definitely look for either in a single or a twin is Volvo's duoprop drive or Merc's Bravo 3, this is a great asset to a boat of this type allowing you to get on plane and maneuver more easily. Closed cooling on the engine/engines would also be a big plus. You will generally be able to get a better warranty on a closed system also.

I have a 38 Baja that is very clean for sale in the mid 60's. Has every option available. Let me know if you would like some pics or more info.

The Formula SS series is real nice. That would make a good all around family cruiser with some performance.

Take a look at Joew's 38 Baja. One of the cleanest boats you will find for the priceIMHO. Has ac,gen,micro etc. worth a look.

The Baja is a lot different than the Formula. The Formula will definitely have more amenities for the family.

Thumbs up

The 38 Baja has a deep cockpit and great family performance boat that joe w has
and would be great for taking trips to blockisland or MV where you could sleep on it. that 38 has a lot of room its a 60mph condo that will keep you dry on rough days. the 27 will have a lot less room not good for 4 people to sleep on if you go on a boat trip. my wife and I went on a lot of trips with my 24 outlaw you say your going for a day trip but every time I would go somewhere fun we would want to stay over. I hope to make a trip with my family this summer to BI its been a while so it will be tight with 3 in the cabin. and with 60,000 boat you will have 60,000 left for gas docking toys for the boat like tubes ect. also check boat classifieds here. stay away from the ss its not a good rough water boat one of our buddys has a twin 330 I thought 31footer it goes 58mph. but pounds bad in the tough, other good boats would be a Baja 29 97 or newer 32,33,36 is a tank wave buster, sonic 31 and up nice deep freeboard on all of these boats ,cig 31,35,38, again wave crusher, active thunder 28 ,32,33,37. if you want to talk give me a call I have some free time waiting for surgery, my familes had boats from 19ft to 46ft over the last 45years. my cell is 617 833 3327. artie
