Default What to buy?

I'm looking for some help. I'm looking for a offshore boat that is a good riding (notice i didnt say great riding) about 24-28ft upper 60s. I dont have kids but looking for something that me and the wife can spend the night in. I was looking at a 1998 sunsation with a 454. What are your thoughts pros and cons?

A nice choice.

If you had said great riding, then I'd say find a Powerplay....


Really though, are you looking for more alternatives, or just advice on this boat. If you want more alternatives, a few more factors would help, like price range, etc.

The Sunsation is a good choice. I don't think that you will be dissatisfied. It's a lot of bang for the $$$. Where will you be boating?

There is a 26 Velocity in Va Beach . It does a bit more than 60 with less than 40 hr on a NEW motor for around 25-28 k.
