Back to the question.
That's what's great about poker runs, ANY boat will do!
It's not a race, it's all about fun.

To me, Poker Runs are about having fun. Sure, I'd like to have a serious contender for "first one in", but unless I hit the lottery, that isn't going to happen. I have as much fun running as anyone out there. I love watching the big bad boats go flying by, it helps with the conversation back at the "wet pits". If you want a "contender" you're going to spend BIG bucks obtaining the boat and BIG bucks maintaining that boat. If you have to ask, you probably can't afford it.
Right now I know I can't. I have a house, a wife, and a "honey do" list.

A boat with a set of red and blue lights with big badge on the side and a couple deputies with no sense of humor - used to discuss proper boating safety with folks who think it's a good idea to drink and run a high performance boat in close proximity to a bunch of other high performance boats.

That makes the poker run for the rest of us that don't leave our common sense in the truck.

Ditto

However, if you do have a chit load of money my guess is this is what you want
