Default Looking for a runabout.

Friend is looking for a 22-25ft Bowrider.
Used on the LI Sound.
Used for skiing and runabout. Some performance wouldn't hurt.

I like the formula's, but they are bigger.
I believe Cobalt is one of the better ones.
He only wants to spend mid 20Ks.
Don't want something too old either.

What's your thought?

It also has a freshwater tank, sink, and transom shower, I have a brand new pump for the water, just needs to be installed.

I will also throw in the Pioneer Head unit/6 disc changer, Icom 2-way radio, and the Standard Horizon CP-150 Chartplotter

Here is a few pics of the setup, But they were taken off the internet, not my boat, just to give you an idea of the layout, the third one is the midcabin.

for low 20's he can find a low hour used Cobalt 220. We loved hours. With 7.4ltr and Bravo 3 she would run right at 60 on the top end . Awesome tow boat also..it would pull 2 tubes with 4 people and you would swear there was nothing back there. Very solid boat with a nice solid interior. No junk anywhere on the boat

A Cobalt 252 open bow would be a great runabout. Good ride, great for skiing and a private head. Reasonable pricing for a late 90's model.
