Default Twin outboard open bows dont exist?

Hello everyone! I recently got sucked into the boating hobby by my friends. I'm looking for my first boat and I want something in the 25'-29' range. I'm dead set on an open bow cat with twin 300's. Why is it so hard to find a boat with that setup? Anyone have any leads on one? My max budget is around $85k.

Not a lot of open bow boats on the Offshore websites brother.. Its just not safe for the kind of boating youre going to find topics about here.

Check out the hotboat or party boat style forums. THey would have more of the DCB's, eliminators, and other west coast style lake boats that have the open bow set up.. Good luck!

I tried to find one for my Dad. Spent 6 months looking for one and then gave up. Good Luck on your search. Your could buy a 25 or 30Motion/Spectre and turn it into an open bow....... Or just leave it as it is and enjoy it.

Thanks Cow and Mike, but I'm looking more for a bigger boat. Must have twin 300's and over 25'. I've been looking everywhere for the last couple weeks and nothing. I'll be patient I guess.. :-)
