I hear you guys on Seans Cigarette but I wanted to keep this ride under $50,000. He wants 67 and I would still need to stick a triaxel under it.
I just put the Alura in the Providence Journal. It should go fast.

Welcome to powerboating----especially performance powerboating! When trying to keep under the $50K mark, I would maybe look for an older 30'-2" Formula---or even a 31' Sonic. They are well built boats that give a good solid ride, and I think there are quite a few out there.

Glad to hear it! If you don't buy it, it may still be available when I can get it!

Any of the boats mentioned would do you just fine. The Pantera or Cig would probably be my first choice but all the rest are equally great. There is a 35 foot Cig for sale at National Marine in Ohio. I had called about it once before and they still have it. The price should be around what you want to spend because it is a mid 80's boat. Good luck with you choice.

Here's another idea. It might sound a bit far-fetched, but it is very workable: Due to recent changes in specifications, the market is swamped with used F1 (Factory 1) race boats. They typically are 4 or 5 years old, have a HP500 engine, and they usually are impeccably maintained. These boats usually have their own dedicated crewchief, their oil is usually changed after every race, and they have extremely low hours, because they aren't used for anything different than racing.

These boats are inspected before every race, and they receive a thorough inspection (sometimes with headers pulled etc.) if they win.

My friend Randy's 1998 Kryptonite, winner of three World Champion titles, would fit your budget with money left for gas.

The only drawback is that these boats are set up for racing. Their cabin is usually unfinished. Their rear seats are taken out etc. This is a minor irritation and would not be expensive to fix. Imagine owning a 3x world champion for what you would spend on a 8o's vintage boat ....

One thing to keep in mind , If you are used to a cruiser , you probably had much more room in the cockpit area then most performance boats have . Think about it real good .Put the whole family in it and see if you all can live with the room / or lack of it . Some boats do have more room but most do not . Hard to beat a Cigarette for ride and value .

You might consider GregP's 40' Formula . I haven't seen his in person but I had one and I don't think anything can compare to that thing for ride and it has a full house and the price is right !!

Also do a search on www.yachtworld.com . just type in the year range and price range . See what there is .

You WILL find something . Good luck , Joe
