that would be a great over nighter and lots of room for a single , lot more than a 24 or 25. and upgradable for power if you want more speed a few yrs down the line.

Sunsation is a great boat! And you will not find any better customer service to go along with it.

Sorry guys Im in Michigan that would help when you ask were I boat at. I agree with you all about sunsation, but Im a little woried about the room. Im 6'3" 265 and every pic and people that i have talked to says it will be tough for me to fit between the front seats. How about a Sonic? I see they still make a 26.

Tieboy it sounds like you want to move away from Checkmate but I don't think you will find a 25-27 performance cuddy with more cabin room than a 259 Convincor. I am going through a divorce and will work with you on price. My boat is a 2000 259 Convincor w/ 454MAG MPI with Tyler Crockett upgrade. I had IMCO full hydraulic steering and Pantera 22" HP tabs installed to correct some porposing and walking issues. This is a 70mph boat. The boat is clean. I bought it new. It is also sitting on top of a 2008 Heritage trailer with LED lights, disc brakes and fold away tongue. It is currently in the classifieds. Take a look, it is a great boat.

Your in Michigan? That's where Saber's are made. Very tough boats that are built to handle the big lakes.
