I have looked at STV 's and they look like a lot of performance for the money.

Does anyone have any good/bad opinions about them? Suggestions on models/brands to look at?

They may be hard to find, but I suggest looking for a 22' Talon with twins. I owned this 1994 Talon for 7 years. It is a center pod cat with great lines and a surprisingly nice ride in the rough. Oh... and crazy quick, especially on nitrous. Never had a STV or Mirage go around me, and I raced a lot of 'em!

Default Forget the tunnel part, and go for the best...

Get an Allison Grand Sport and meet all of your criteria except being a tunnel, with the added benefit of being the best built 20 foot v hull boat none...that is not a is a statement of fact.
