Default Best all around 25, 26, 26 ft boat?

Hi everyone. A little background. I have a Baja 232, which is nice, has the 454 mag and might do 68 on its best day, which isnt bad. But id like something a little bigger and faster. I was looking at the sonic 260, nice boat, but kinda heavy and a little slower than my current boat. The outlaw 25 is nice, but i think everyone has those on the lake(s) that i boat on. Im looking to stay around 30k, maybe max around 33k. I like the fountain 27, but, anything in my range is older, say pre 1993 or so, and look dated. Id also like something with a nicer cabin to spend a few nights a year on out on the water. enclosed head is an extra bonus! Ill probably be looking all winter, just wondering if all the knowledgable people on here can steer me in the right direction. thanks!

A 26 Hustler that can run around 70 mph is a nice boat in your price range. Nicely built and not tons of them around.

Here's a link to one on Boat Trader

Not sure I have found any for sale lately. The 25 OL is tough to beat. Some other similar would be a 28 AT, 26 Sonic, Baja 272.

I am finding its basically baja outlaw 25, or sonic 260 if ya dont mind a little drop in speed. everything else are awesome boats, they just get a little too expensive for something nice.

I got a 1994, 26' Infinity for sale.. Re-painting is in the works if you are not in a hury. 69.3 with 454 mag. and you got some $ left over to play with the motor. or spend thousands for a stereo.
