Dont forget about Regals. They are a well built boat that produces a good sport crusier. Specially the 2850 LSC almost got one my self it will run hight 50's with a single BBC in it. and it will fit the price range and you kid will love it. Rag's

I have a 96 Regal 32 foot cruiser and love it. the lay out is excellent, much better than a sea ray in my opinion. It goes real well with twin 454 Bravo 3's (49 on a GPS so far). The purchase price is very competative and the build quality is excellent. Give them a good look, I think they are a very good deal.

I third the Regals , I been on a few very good fit and finish, make sure ya get twins at least a set of
V6 4.3's on 26-28 ft after that pair of 300hp small-blocks
28-32ft, 6.2 horizons motors are nice too very low maintenace and 320hp

much easier to dock with twins, especially with windy conditions

LovlyLady426, if you can wait a few months i think the Detroit boat show is usually in February or march. They have mostly cruisers there so you can look at a lot of them at once and you'll probably get a better deal from the show.

I second the Rinker.

The 34 overalls at 37 and has an awsome layout. Has a sink and fridge in the cockpit, and also a pop-up blender. The cabin is huge and has a separate shower next to the head.

You can find one a couple years old in your price range.

Here is a link which compares it's features to other boats in its class.

I agree with the Rinker, cant beat it for the money.

I had an older one(1988)250 Fiesta Vee, 28' OAL, no problems with boat(mine had an OMC, so we wont talk about the drivetrain). Price was right, and served my purpose for the time being. Another very good priced cruiser is the Glastron GS249, My mother in-law has one, and loves it9except for the Volvo Drive train) try for something with a Merc at least, and I agree with twins, mine was a ***** to dock with any kind of current..
