Default New Boat Choices

We would like any ones opinion on what type of boats we could look into/buy. I know this site is geared toward offshore racing type stuff, but I figured I would see what could come out of this. We currently have a 26 SeaRay OV and we really like the 31 SeaRay Sun Sport, and would like to stay this size or smaller like 28. We have seen a boat made by Mariah but never heard of them, but like the layout. We want something still sporty, but has some amenities of home, but definitely not a cruiser, because we still like to have fun with her. The biggest thing is to have a cabin with a separate head and running water.
Any input by you guys would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Yea... I agree. Formula 28SS is a good combo of cruise and sport.
Not sure about the separate head.
