Take a look at the tall deck Eliminator 28 Daytona if you want a cabin.

The boats are a little heavier than the HTM's, but seem to be more solid. There is lots of storage under the deck, but no seating. My boat weighs 4,000# with 80 gallons of fuel.
Sorry that the weather was not at its best this last weekend, would have liked to have hooked up with you and wette vette. I have been wanting to take him for a ride anyway, maybe the next time you are in the area. Look forward to it!!
Has Craig made it to the triple numbers yet? The last post of his that I seen he was around 97 or 98. but then when he does get the numbers I'm sure we will hear about it!! Come back soon..

My American Offshore 2600 has a nice area under the nose. No its not a cabin with a fridge and coffie maker but it gets the job done! Have had 4 people under there to get out of the rain and I have/do sleep on it!!

Mike, you took the words right out of my mouth. I know HTM rates the boat at 4,400 lbs., but I didn't know if that was wet or dry. Anyway, it's definately heavier than the carrera if jdnca1 is correct. I wish some more builders would incorporate a decent cabin into their cats.

SR-24;

Are you saying the fully loaded weight rating is 4450# INCLUDING passengers? My question is what does the hull weigh wet...no passenger, I've always been told around 3000#. That is why the 24 HTM is so fast. Please clarify. My Carrera is 4000# full of fuel...no passengers, and I would guess the full weight rating is 6,000#ish.

I was under the impression the SR-24 was 4,400#'s dry but even if that number is wet it is steal pretty heavy. I am going to find out for sure and I will post back.

Default 25' Daytona available

290PQ- my 25' daytona is in the classifeds, a very reliable set-up with respectable performance, now has 85 hrs. come down for a weekend and hang out, run it, I'll deliver it if you like. The cabin is not as big as an HTM's but is fully padded and can easily sleep 2 adults and 2 kids.
