Cool Re: New Boat Choices

Hey J!

We did not forget about yours! We really like it and want it! We are just looking around and also waiting for someone to take our present boat off our hands. We can not do anything till we get rid of our present boat and by then yours might be gone, but not forgotten. Beleive me when the time comes we will be asking if it is still available.

Thanks
Jason

Try Cobalt boats and Formula Boats, both are quality made, and have great resale. Jeff

31 SeaRay Sunsport. I have a friend who has now retired and no longer performance boats who has one for sale. This is a beauty and is excellent condition. Has radar, GPS, A/C, every option available with T-454 mags.
Has a very nice aluminum I-beam trailer included for around $52k
These are very nice boats.

Mariah went out of business just a few years ago. Check this thread. http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...ariah+business

Their biggest boat I believe was the 30 footer which came in a closed and open bow mid cabin model. Big boat with single drive, so it wasn't the fastest thing out there. Pretty good quality boat. Here is a 2001, but only has the 7.4, this boat really needs the 502. http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listi...canyachtsales&

If your towing, the searay 31 sunsport, 28 Chapparall, 29 powerquest, 28 formula ss, Regal 29 sport are wider than the legal 8'6" towing limit. Then again, this isn't a concern to some people. We've always been looking for something with cabin accommodations and the boats I list are great, but we tow so they got crossed off the list. If your towing, almost seems like you have to go with a performance boat since most hold to the 8'6" beam. To get great accommodations on a performance boat like your looking for, you really have to get into the 30+ range. As someone mentioned, the Sonics have a usable cabin. Also the Velocity 32 has a nice cabin with enclosed head. Enclosed heads are tough to come by in the performance arena in this size range. Active Thunder also has them in the 28 and 32. Baja has them in the 302, but there is NO head room in the head, more like a gear closet. Envision is another boat that comes to mind. Getting into the 35' class, you can get betting pickings.... Good luck.
