No problem velocity has great hull for speed and handling i have owned 2 of them , mine is an efi, you can find older 280 & 260 for around 30k remember a 280 is 26 ft a 260 is 24 ft , mine is a true 29 foot boat good luck boat hunting ?

This might work under 30K - has 454 HO MAG MPI motor. Boat is way above in average condition with no issues.

I personally dont like the looks of velocity. To me they remind me of a street legal hot rod where one person can fit in them. When i was looking at boat I looked at velocity. Not knocking them if all you want is speed and nothing else matters go for it. But to me I would go Baha for that price and overall speed, performance and comfort. Ive seen a lot of velocitys sit on the market for a LONNNNGGGG time.

Me personally for your first boat/performance boat the 25 Baja would be perfect and if its in nice shape Bahas are easy to re sale. A velocity is limited to a small market who wants them

I am one of the odds that enjoys the looks of them even over the Baja Outlaw style.

I am not against a Baja but if are were equal (size, speed, price, year) i would take the Velocity.

However they are not and i understand that. However most people with OL 25' think they sit on gold, most i have seen for sale are over $30k and most are about $35k area and have middle of the road hrs too.

If i find one with low hrs and in the high $20k price range then i might make a move but that is exactly were the Velocity or most that i see are and like i said i prefer the style of the Velocity over the OL.

I also as odd as it sounds do not want a lot of room....like i said 5 with me would be MAX and more time than not it will be me and my Gf and that's it.

My last boat had lots of room so ALL friends wanted on. That boat was TRASHED in no time. It may sound rude but i dont care for others on my boat or room for them. Me and my GF are all my concerns are for.
