I can't wait to be buying a boat that I need to keep under $150k, if possible lol. I'm happy with my Formula and Chris Craft for only being 23, I'll grow up soon..... LOL

32' Fountain, 32' Regal, 42' Fountain, 35'Cafe

Be pretty accurate to say the best times are spent on the Regal.

Go for two. It is hard to retire from speed. I went out and got an old school 60 foot (I don't know why you are in a hurry in a cruiser anyway). I would not trade it for the world. It is a large time. I could fit a fleet of PC's in the glove box.


When I want to go fast, I walk two slips down and hit the hydrohoist and drop in the Donzi.

This can be done on both a larger and smaller scale. Lots of great deals these days.

I love my cruiser. I may change around my fast boats but not this one.

We were doing around 50-55 when my GF at the time took that picture. I think it had twin 496HO's?? Were they available back in '04?
