Default Why is it so hard to find a used 28'-30'???

Why can't I find a 28'-32' boat from 40,000-55,000 that runs 70mph on gps, All I want is a good handling boat that isn't the everyday boat

Sonic 1996 or newer 28-31'
AT 1997 or newer 28'
Donzi 28zx 1998 or newer
Pantera 28'1994 or newer
Scrabb 29' 1996 or newer
Sunsation 32' 1997 or newer
Any of these I will consider, I would like twin power or

possibly a 28.8 sunsation with a 502

Finding anything with twin power in decent shape in the years you are looking for is going to be next to impossible.

Theres a 28 saber in the classifieds section. I dont know anything about saber but seems like a resonable price and its a nice looking boat. twin 500hp's on a trailor for 55k. I'm undecided about the bright yellow though. Check it out maybe its you.

I've got a 1994 290 Enticer for sale. The boat is in excellent condition has twin 454 Mag EFI's and will run an honest 70-72 mph. Its in the OSO classified section. You will not find a cleaner boat. Maybe PQ's are not your thing , but its in your price and speed range and looks better than a lot of newer boats.

I know that Performance marine has both a fountain and a powerquest in the high 20's/low 30's. Both are real nice boats.
