Also Powerplay 33 flat deck. I like the I/O better than the egg beaters. Also a very good rough water handling boat. Not as much room as the Outlaw, but they are cool boats. Again with 500's going to be pushing the 80 mark.

Mine ran north of 80 gps with 500's 3 dudes and 3/4 fuel. Great boats

Surprised you haven't considered a 30' Outlaw. A friend has one with a pair 496 HO and it will run 76 all day, so cruising at 60 is a piece of cake.

Nice turn key and very reliable package.

Its not super heavy, so its the best in real rough water, but does fine on most inland lakes. But its weight makes it easier to tow that some of the other suggestions.

Yup, wouldn't even look at anything else.
I had a 28 AT loved it but a 32 is by far the best all round boat out there, it does it all.

Thanks to all for the recommendations on my boat.
A 60mph cruise is right about 4000rpms.
My 32 AT was my first twin engine boat. It was a piece of cake getting used to the twins. I can manuever it in tighter spaces than my 28 Pantera or 24 Outlaw.

Wow, that's the same thing I did. There are a lot of great choices out there. I went from a 24 outlaw to a 31 bullet.

Definately not planning on getting out of boating. I'm really not sure whats next though. The 32 AT has to sell before I worry too much about that.
