I like 27 Fever's a lot and they fit your requirements nicely

This seems suspiciously cheap, but if there's nothing wrong with it then it's a nice deal.

------Go into Classic Offshore and check out the Martini. I know its in Missouri, but what a deal for what appears to be a very clean boat. Oh,,,And Martini 25s are just plain cool.......Bill S

Go a little bigger, spend a little more to go a lot faster. I have a Nordic 35 in the classifieds.

Thats amazing! EVERY SINGLE REQUIREMENT you have listed is what I wanted when I was looking for my last boat. Trust me on this--get a 25-30 ft Powerquest. They have everything you are looking for and are built for rough Lake Michigan! Incredible quality (nothing and I mean nothing ever breaks!).

That 2001 Silencer is a REALLY good deal! Thats a newer 28 foot boat for under $30k!
Good luck!!

Wow, that Silencer does look to be a good deal. And I see exhaust diverters, too. Nice boats, those PQs. The windshield looks like it might actually be useful.

Question

How about looking in the Eliminator section in the classifieds or on their site.... The 250 Eagle xp, 260 eagle, and 280 eagle are great looking, single engine, cuddy Vee's... and might be something too look into.... Take a look...!!!

Geeish.. With boats like that, I need to ask more for my Infinity.(9K..) Has everything you want, but the stero. It has a basic system. However, if you need to look at the PQ. I'm just a few minutes away from Holiday.

Among west coast boats a good deal potentially is this Howard:

http://www.offshoreonly.com/classifi...o38682-en.html

Doesn't meet your fresh water/diverter criteria, but a relatively low hour 525 efi (probably a season before a top end) and those are nice f'king boats in person. Fast as hell. Of issue of course is the "glass work" needed. See if glass Dave will be in Florida anytime soon, lol.

Also, there are quite a few good deals on Checkmates in your size and price range.
