also like the 31 cigarette bullet but i think it would take big power and lots of gas money to make it do what i want, the mystique is sweet too but out of my price range

The 33 AVs's run and handle great. Mine runs 92 on 10 yr old bone stock power. They can be had with porcelain pump out head, fresh water sink and transom shower along with shorepower. The cabin is pretty roomy, a little short on headroom ( I am 6'). All that makes them pretty friendly for overnighting as well as stomping on some Powerplays

Just as well....it would take too long to explain why a 35' Fountain is the same as most 31-33' sport boats.

If you have time too be patient, you could get a mystique for that kind of money I'd think. That would be a great choice.

A bullet will be the things you said, but a real wavecrusher. If you're borrowing though, something that age can be tough.

What he said ! !

If I was purchasing right now this would be my want list:
30 Cigarette Mystique or Vice (if you can find one)
33 Powerplay and 32 Active Thunder
31 Sonic SS
33 Scarab AVS

Now with the prices of the Sonics a little more in my range so in reality that would be my first choice.

I have a '96 Hustler 32' Sport for sale. Listed on boattrader.com
I run the boat on Lake Ontario, so it'll certainly handle the water you will run in. Great ride, proven hull design with excellent handling. Nice room in cabin for overnighting, and deep cockpit. This boat is the nicest pure 32' on the market. This boat will look like a battleship next to a 29' Fountain.

For that money, my search would start and stop at Sean's Cafe, if he still has it. Heritage, ride, and fresh fuel-injected power. It might be a touch slower than some of the others, but with a Cigarette you won't have to slow down much.

OMG the red one in Powerboat was absolutely STUNNING! Using the Viper deck design was a stroke of genius. Ran like a raped ape too.
