Default About ready to buy..

Looking for a 30 to 33 V-hull with twin 500 efi's 2005 or newer. I like the Sonic 31ss but open to taking a look at ones simular. I would be ok with 525's but dont want anything super charged. I would rather have realiablity. I would be happy with high 80's or lo 90's for speed.

I think the fountains, scarrab's and several other popular builds are outdated and need (needed in 2005) change/updating.

Im looking to spend 50,000 to 80,000 depending on what is out there which I have 25,000 cash to put up cash.

Looking for opinions and to gain knowledge so please leave input.. (No cats or outboards please. Not my style)

Also, Loan info and Ins. info appreciated. Teach me what you learned so I dont make the same mistakes!

Thanks in advance. Larry....

That's a pretty tall order for something in good condition with 525's. Anything that new won't have 500's anymore.

No thanks to all above... I looked at the Fountains... Same boat from the 90's. Dash and int. still looks like an old Miami Vice episode.

I provided him with options, updated older boats in his price range. He wants everything for nothing. Whatever, he'll be boatless for awhile. Gotta pay if you wanna play.
