cruisers?

Hi again,
I can't seen to get my mind off a cruiser. But reading on it. Its like reading a differant language. But the style of one is what I am looking for. As far as entertaining and my daughter and I to spend time on. I've seen lots of boats being pulled. But never a cruiser. HELP

I dont think you could go wrong with a Sea Ray. That would be my choice if I got a cruiser.

Knowing your budget would help.

If it were me Id go for a Formula cruiser or a Formula Super sport ( more cockpit space less cabin room than the cruiser models)

I'd look at the Mustang line of cruisers if you want that traditional "cruiser look". What I like is that: 1. The hull to deck joint is bonded with fiberglass on the inside, similar to an offshore boat. 2. The beam is slightly narrower for a better rough water ride.

I'd also look at the Formula and Fountain sport cruisers if you want something sportier.

Sea Ray cruisers hold their value well. Formula costs more initially, and typically falls in value quicker (in the cruiser market). For this reason, I would rather buy a used Formula cruiser.

Now, for BANG for the BUCK, it is hard to beat a Rinker. You can get a NICE 30' twin V6 (more room in the engine compartment than the V8) with Generator and Air a few years old for around $45k. Good boat to see if you like cruisers with. If you keep it a year and want more, then go for a "premium" brand.
