How about 1/2 of a Fountain 40 footer ?

Paramount builds a popular 21 footer used to be factory direct.

I had a Chaparral Villain II which was 19 feet. If you want to build something you can do what I did. By the time it was done I had, including the cost of the boat, I had only $10,000 in the boat. Most of the savings was from my own labor. Not bad for a mid 60mph boat. Believe it or not I was even able to have a set of stand-up bolsters made for the boat without it looking top heavy. I only sold the boat, because it was a little small for South Florida water. I was planning to add an aluminum swin platform on the back. I think for your needs this is a great boat. 19', 5.7/Alpha, Thru-Hull exhust, Trim-tabs, Engine cover pad. There are plenty of then out there, just depends if you want to rebuild it to your specs or leave it as you find it. Take a look at what I did. Not bad for 19' boat.
