If any of you know of anything out there let me know. Nothing against Baja and Powerquest but thats not my style. I boat on Lake Cumberland and I don't want to see my exact boat out there. Thanks for the help!
Too bad you won't consider PQ. Got a buddy with a 29 Enticer for sale in your price range that is clean.

Odd.....your avatar shows a 29 Formula, which is close to the size the poster is looking for. You dont even suggest your own brand.
Sometimes what people dont say speaks volumns.
29 Fountain single, is along the same lines as what is suggested, a little smaller cockpit than some of the others. Boat with friends that have a 288 Sunsation, have been in the boat several times. Its rock solid, and has held up well. I think he has owned it about 6 years.

Don't forget the price range attached to the initial question. Formula's hold their value very well. I don't think you'll find a 292 Fastech for 35 grand. A 27 might work though.

Back to the original poster... I'll second the Donzi 28 ZX from above. They can be found in your range, also look at 27 ZX. The bottoms of the late twin step 27 ZX are the same as the newer 28 ZX but they can be had for a lot less money. in single Big Block (HP500's were available, along with standard BBC power) or twin SB's.

29 Warlock is a great boat. So are the 30 Activator and 20 Superboat. These are primarily sit-down boats, but they all run extremely well.

I am assuming 20 superboat is a typo

He said 28 ft thats why I did not suggest a 29 Formula.That and there are better boats in that size range than a 292.
