Have a look at my Checkmate 259 Convincor in the classified section. HP500 plus lots of freeboard for a boat its size.

If it has to be a single.....and you still want to get out & run with the big dogs........28 Pantera will be very hard to beat...........

Default CAN'T FIND EITHER ONE

The only Pantera I see is with power almost $70,000, and the only 25' checkmate is on the east coast, not in IL which is a short drive for me.

Where is the 25' your talking about?

I'm really on my way to the bank right now for details on a loan.
