I love my HTM SR24. Most useable cockpit and cuddy of any cat in its size range.

You can buy a good used 28 Skater with twin 300's for $70 - 75K. If you don't need a cabin, that's BY FAR the best bang for the buck. 110 - 115+ mph on stock power. The 28 hull hasn't changed in years. A 1999 hull is just as current as a 2012. Unless you want the sound of big block power, it's the way to go.

Prior to making a move I'd contact NRG at Lake of the Ozarks if you want a new, custom order boat. I think they have a single engine cat that fits your size criteria they can build.

not to bust your balls but why would you want to spend 75g's on a single engine boat?

The 26 redline and possibly a 30 predator are the two I really like, now just waiting on prices to see what they run. Both have great reviews everywhere Ive read.

the redline is a nice deep boat with room under the deck so you can get out of the weather or whatever....their is one that runs around over here and it is a great looking boat with a 1100hp motor on a scx drive...nice setup...he has video's on you tube of the boat running

You can get a 26 NRG with a 8.2 (430hp) for around $79k.

My bad, it's is a 28 and with a 525 EFI MSRP is $131k

They were previously Profile's molds.

Nothing like calling the factory Saturday night at 8:45 p.m. and getting pricing!
