They appear to look cool but do enough research and you'll talk yourself out of it. Apparently saying they have a low resale value would be a compliment. Lots of them sitting.

I have sold many Sunsations and was approached by Kachina to sell their product before the owner passed away and the factory was shut down. I can tell you that the Kachina in no way complimented the Sunsation boat line I was already selling. Kachina has very cool graphics but that is about it. Where will you be boating? The Kachina's are a very good lake boat but not intended for rough water at all.

No offense to anyone that currently owns one. This is my opinion.
I would recommend the Sunsation.

I just noticed you are in the Poconos. PM me and I will see if I can get you up close to a Sunny very soon.

I have seen 36 Cigarette with 2-525 sell for 105 . That was a real boat !!! My point is be smart and get the best you can for your money

I Know where you can get a real nice 2002 31 Sonic with trailer, and other upgrades for $60K. Has 496HO's. Hard to beat it in this size range with cabin and other ammentities.

The OP is looking for a mid cabin open bow. There was a 2006 32 MCOB Dominator SS in TX with 496ho that was for sale for $60ish. I think it recently sold though.

Thanks for the input. Didn't really like the Kachina from the pictures I seen but I figured I would ask.. I recently won the auction on a 32 sunny mcob on ebay for 46k but the guy started playing games with the trailer then sent my deposit back.
I am looking for used around $60k.
