Default Boss says buy a new boat!!

We currently have a Baja 232 Islander and we are ready to step up a bit. What we would like in our next boat:
Must fit in 28 slip
Must be smooth on rough water
Twins
80 plus mph
Must seat 4-6 easily room for the family
Low swim platform
dependable
I know there will be a lot of choices just looking for some direction to start. Thanks for the help in advance.

I think you may have forgotten the most important detail for anyone to be able to help.

If you want smooth in rough water at LOTO, there is no 28'r that will be smooth on a weekend in the main channel. A 28 Pantera will have about as good of ride as you can get. With the swim platform, it is 30' long. Also the the swim platform sits pretty high.
