If you are looking for room, go with the Sonic. I have a 27 Fountain, great boat but the cabin is small, but its fast

I agree with Sydwayz. The 26' Sonic is a great boat. I was in one down in Maryland. There's a heck of a lot of cabin headroom, the quality is there, and they look cool. They're even priced reasonably. Good luck.

I have a 27 Fountain Fever II. Great boat, but a small cabin and 60 gallon fuel tank. These were not big issues for us living on a lake. Donzi and Formula are excellent, but also look at Sunsation. Very impressed with the boat and the factory folks. Nice quality and excellent cabin. Try Premier Motorsports. Very honest, family run dealership and they know how to deal. Gun Lake Michigan 616-792-8080. Ryan or Tony Gruver. They carry Checkmate boats too. Look at Convincer 270, ZT 260 or ZT 280 models. Cabins are roomey, but more sparse compared to all the other boats mentioned. 496 HO or HP500 are the engines to choose.

sydwayz summed it up !! me and sonic99 have used our 26 sonic prowlers on lake gearge and its not a problem , we also boat on the hudson river and very rarely have any problems , we also have gone to nj and long island without much of a hassel. do a search on oso for others that have asked or own a 26 prowler you will be very suprised . i am 6'3 and can sit up in the cabin and the drivers seat is the perfect position.

"I want to be able to sit up in the cabin W/O bending my neck, I trailer everywhere I go , any thoughts or ideas on power 496HO"

Check out the 25 Outlaw, 272 or the 29 Outlaw By Baja.

Take a look at the 280 velocity the boat has a lot of room in the cabin, and the part that I like is the amount of space in the cockpit. The boat is offered with a tall windshield or a short one. Get it with a 500efi and it will run in the upper 70's. Great boat for the money, and a lot more room than a 27 fountain.
Just my opinion.

Thanks for all the info, this site is great, I guess I,m going to have to do some homework. I already ruled out Velocity back seat is VERY low and they are a little pricey. I got some good leads on some used boats. One is a dealer in GA. who has a 2000 leftover 26zx on a trailer for 63K.
Also I want to check out Sonic at this point I,m leaning to a used/new boat 1999 to 2002. Fountain dropped thier prices about 20%, this should impact the used market as you can now get a 27 fever for about 62K.

What do you think this economic downturn will do ???/ to the used market/? On one side I,m a buyer but on the other I still have to sell/trade my old boat/ should I just wait until the NY boat show??

Thanks a ton for the info
