Just messin' with you! With that budget,you should be able to find something pretty decent. Try to get something complete that you can modify later instead of a project( just my opinion,) If your new to boating, concentrate on launching/retrieving,boat handling,(docking,navigating your area,ect.) so smart a$$es like us wont be picking you apart! Welcome to boating and stay safe!!! About the JET SKIS, I've owned two jet ski rental companies and they're a lot of fun in the right hands.

Bad back and jumping waves in the ocean,ummmm you won't last a season. If you're in 3ft or more on a continuous basis, your back is going to give you problems, then your knees, they are going to take a pounding to alleviate some of the stress off your back, but in the end unless you're buying a big $$$ Statement, you're going to have some issues running hard. Not only the bad back, running hard makes things break on your boat, so be prepared to dish out additional repair $$$ besides typical boating $$$.

With that budget you probably won't be going that fast. You could buy a small outboard river racer for less than 20k and run 120mph + but it won't be in the ocean. The smooth water would be better for your back too.

My 24 Pantera is available in the classifieds. Born and bred in Miami for offshore use. It's a 24 x 7 hull and it met my need for speed.509 BBC. 80mph on GPS. Do your research. Don't rely on a couple posts in any one thread. Chat with people that actually own a specific type of boat if one catches your attention. There are a couple other decent sites catering to the offshore crowd that will also have good scoop. There are many good boats available besides mine that will meet your critera.

Do you know how quickly you can throw yourself out of the helm and crash into a multimillion dollar yacht?
Lawsuits death or worse lifelong dissability.
Yes there are lots of fast boats but do you have the skill and sense?
BTW I have a 28ss sonic with 2 procharged 454s for 24k but be very sure you know how to drive it.

Those are my kind of boats for sure!!!
I'd love to have a 24-28' as a fast play boat for the Gulf and the bays just for the ease of trailering and putting in/out alone.

OP, good luck in your search.
I'd say there would be more than a few 24-28' boats in your price range which will get you the speed your looking for.

See ya,
Kelly
