Default Help me find a boat, I'm tired of boat shopping.

Hey guys I need some help boat shopping. I check on here, boattrader, craigs list, powerboat listings, ebay, etc. regularlly. So if you have something or know of someone or a dealer/broker that has what i'm looking for i'd appreciate a heads up. Looking for a 26-33' single or twin i/o. Must have hydraulic steering and K-Planes,swim platform, trailer, and a reasonably sized cabin.. Although if I had to add a swim platform and buy a trailer I'd just have to take into account my budget. I don't want anything with big power but a nice reliable power package. My prefeance would be a Sunsation, PowerPlay, Active Thunder, Hustler, Pantera, Cigarette, but I'm open to others. I have a budget of $45,000

Thanks

Kn All I Have To Say Keep Shopping
As A Marine Surveyor It Took Me Almost 2 Year To Find The Right Boat
I Drove Over 14,000 Miles And Chased Every Piece Of Junk That I Was Told Was Perfect
Everybody Told Me I Was To Picky
But I Finailly Found Excatly What I Was Looking For In Almost Perfect Condition
So It Was Worth The Time Spent
Listen To That Voice In Your Head It Knows Best
If Your Not Sure Walk Away
If You Find Something Dont Just Buy It Becouse It Is Close
Buy Exactly What You Are Looking For There Are Alot Of Boats For Sale
Shop Every Day, Travel And Go Look It Will Be Worth It

To me, part of the fun in the process of boat ownership is the search and finding the right boat! It is an adventure to find and examine the right boat for your intended purpose. After all, most of us use these things to head out to open water for adventure. It's the travel that is the experience; more than the destination! Take your time and enjoy it.

The 29' Kryptonite in the classifieds is the ticket. Right price, new power, FAST. Big cabin for what it is, but lacking on headroom somewhat in the cabin.

And no, its not mine, I just know how they run.

Thanks Phil.

That's me. Seems to fit your bill, $2k over your budget. Boat's been wetsanded, new windshield, interior, cabin, steering wheel, batteries, fuel sender, imco lower, xz drive, new wheels/bearings and actuator on trailer, trailer polished, new cockpit cover sunbrella plus, full cover 7/10 condition no rips, fresh JCPERFORMANCE power 546ci, not even installed yet going on dyno everything new except the carb and block. Looking at low 90's. I believe you were searching for kryptonites earlier. Other boats mentioned are also great. AT, PP, Panerta, Forumula are all pretty solid.
