hotjava66 ! looking for new? or used? what your price range?
I have the 33' Avanti up for sale. Headrooom is like the Sonics but there are still planty of comfort for overnighting. We done it several times. I used to boat in the big pond and all I can say is get the biggest you an get.
The Avanti is a true 33 footer plus the swim platform with twin 525's Mid 80's. Great rough water boat, and WILL turn heads. But it's a year old so it's priced accordingly. 160K with try axle trailer.

Good luck with your search; maybe you should expand your search to Sunsation before you make a decision.
I second the Sunsation 32SS. Sounds like it'll fit your needs perfectly!

The great lakes? Get as much hull as you can period. I can vouch for the 33' PP. I ran it in Long Island Sound, plenty of chop and snot and it handled it like a dream.

[QUOTE=baja27;2975216]With the boats mentioned the Powerplay will be the best handling boat, the donzi will be the best room in the cabin. That being said I will have my PP 33 for sale very soon which is a very customized. I also have children that I take out every weekend durning the summer and never really have to worry about the water condtions. Do your self a favor and search PP about the build quality and ride you will not be disapointed.
I will be boat shopping in the dc/baltimore area first week of november, if its for sale i could take a look.
