Check ou my 30 carrera with twin 250's in the classifieds. It does 65-68 mph and rides very well. It is perfect and I set it up with performance in mind.(I dont fish!)

Just searching around, there seems to be a couple of nice ones on Craigslist.

The only experience I have with a cc was my father's 1989 20ft Wellcraft Sport w/200 Merc. Not in the same league obviously, but definitely one of the driest boats i've been in for that ft range at least, with the flair it has.

Great help, eh?

Both those Concepts in the pics have the general "look" that I want. Never thought about trips, what will those 36's run with those set ups?

PM me the phone numbers and who I ask for when I call.

We love our whaler to death, its pretty quick too for only having 350hp and the wrong props haha. We are seeing low 60s on a good day. The new 32 is a VERY nice boat. I would check out contender, invincible, and yellowfin.

As you kow I'm looking for a little CC for the rivers and so the kids can learn to drive around (18-21 ft). I need lots of seating (most little CC don't have it) and a porta potti. I may be forced to buy new but actually prefer a used boat with a few cosmetic issues already so I don't freak over them scratching anything!!

Good Luck, I'm actually getting tired of the search already!
I have been looking at a little CC to goof around the river in, have decided to put it off one more year...
I went to look at this one and it is pretty clean at a good price that is Negotiable...

My buddy has a 36 Avanti with twin 300 Verados and loves it, his dad has had 3 36 Concepts and he says his is faster with alot better ride and more room. I didn't ask him the speed but it must be upper 60's low 70's if it's faster than a Concept with same power. You can find them under 100 all day long. They make a 33 also.

33 and 36 Avanti same boat...have three friends with them in Annapolis area...

your buddies Dad with the Concept's, does he own several Midas stores in NOVA?? Place in Hollywood FL?
If so I bought my 2001 33 Concept from him... (Bill I think?)

You won't see 70s' with twins unless you go with the Superboat. The concepts didn't impress me with their speed,but, they were nicely appointed. Good luck.

When researching make sure to take good look at the beam. concepts are very narrow, little over 8 ft that makes them fast but might not ride as well as you would like. My 34 fountain has a 9' 6 beam runs very well in the rough stuff.
