Default wife is looking for a cruiser! HELP!

Looks like that bridge is coming and I have to find pretty soon a Gost fast that is almost like a cruiser.

I currently have a 35-7 Formula. What has a bigger cabin?

Sonic I guess are bigger than my boat. Do you agree with this? What other brand could offer bigger than what I have, and have like: microwave, 1 or 2 fridge, a real toilet, that we can walk in the cabin pretty much standind instead of 4 feet high?

need your help guys. She's looking at things like maxum cruiser 3100...

suggestion and / or pictures please!!!!

or an older 419 formula..spicy is selling his 40ss with upgraded 496's in it. I was being towed in with a blown drive and he came by at about 50 ish and that big hog was rolling, looked great.

Do Not get a cruiser . I did and was bored out of my fkn mind mind all summer . All we did was eat and drink on it .
My wife too wanted a cruiser and I have to admit there were times I was curious what the lifestyle would be like .
I got a 41' Carver CPMY 2 Staterooms ,2 Head with a salon as big as a house . But we ended up never going anywhere because the cruising part just didn't do it for me .
Instead I wish I would have bought the 400SS with Diesels that I was looking at .
Know anyone that wants a Carver ? Great boat if you're a senior citizen . Luckily I kept my 38 Top Gun .

400SS with 525's should make you both happy

Jeff, I know it's a long way from you. But there is a very nice 400ss at LOTO. 12 or so hours with 496HO's. And set up very nicely. I've heard they want to get rid of it very badly. Last summer they were asking about $250,000. Probably a lot less now.
