That pretty well hits the nail on the head. If I were to buy a CAT I would have already made the decision that a cabin wasn't necassary. With that being said....I'd buy a Skater!

Let's do a little more qualifying......What price range are you thinking? This should help narrow the field down

Oh, and for the size cat you are talking about be prepared for insurance from 2-8k depending on power/size/speed

What I would like would be a used or new cat from 31 to 35 with a pair of outbaords if possible (2.5 or 3.0). I would like to keep the cost under a 100k. I have seen many in the price range but have yet to check on insurance. I suppose being 23 years old they will hammer me on the insurance!!

Dont Even Think About Triples!!!! It Will Be Almost Impossible TO INSURE Unless Your Wallet Is As Deep As The Ocean.

30 Motion
28 Skater (not exactly 31 but a must to consider)
30 Spectre
These are the boats I would consider if thinking about Outboards. All true tunnels and w/twins they should all run over 105 every day. If you are looking for a cabin in a cat in that price range you have Eliminator, HTM (they make a 30), Magic, American offshore/Awesome. I know there are some I am forgetting but these are some of the more popular boats in this class. I am 23 too, I think you may have a hard time getting insurance on these boats.

Although Skater does make a 32 w/outboards I think most of these are over the 100k price range.

i rode in a 28 eliminator with twin OB'S at the maimi show. it was awesome. i havnt seen one of their 33's with OB's but im sure its possible. their cabin is really nice also. also a bit less expensive then a skater, but a great boat, top quality.

Id like to 2nd or 3rd the insurance issue. cat owners are getting hosed. But they are fast, so its worth it.

With Blackadar going out of the high performance insurance biz, I think it might get really hard to get cat insurance at a reasonable cost.............and you can forget a cat with trips.
