I know you already mentioned the 33 powerplay, but i highly recomend it. I bought mine last sept. and i love it. Im in the same budget range as you and tis boat fits the bill. Classic looks, good rough water boat and pretty fast with mild power. I like the fact there arent many on lake St.clair where I boat so it turns some heads.

Reading your specs for price range; size; twins with speed; etc. I've got to say Sunsation's 32 footer. Yeah cockpit slightly smaller than most, but the cuddy is larger than most 32's headroom being the exception, but the v-berth is large.

Speed (82 with 496HO's); good looks; solid construction able to take a whuppin'; cuts like a knife in the rough; factory support; and so far very reasonable pricing. I'm hearing the Dominator deck is about to marry the Innovator bottom adding the headroom factor and twin step marketability to the line.

Trout -

Look at the 1990 33 Powerplay for sale on Sharkey's website...

This is my old boat and it actually looks cleaner than when I owned...this boat is mint and even has new gauges.

Right in your price range too !

See my sig....I was in a similar position as you: I want to spend <$80K, 30' - 33' (slip in my dock won't handle more than 33'), well-built, something that will last me 5-10 yrs, and deep vee. I'm more concerned with rough water ride than all out top speed; I just want to be able to cruise 50-55 in any kind of water, with an occasional jaunt to 70 or so. I settled on the Formula 336 for those reasons. It has timeless lines, IMO, and plenty of features like a fridge, enclosed head, McLeod bolsters, etc.

I didn't see he had an 80k or less # to work with. A/T or Power Play for speed, Sonic if you want to spend the night on it.

You should have jumped on that Nortech!!! 100mph!! No Cabin!!! but hey, who cares....You never get lucky enough to need a stabbin' cabin anyway!!!

It's a little bigger than you are talking about, but check out the 38ft Larry Smith Scarab in the Classifieds!!! Over 100mph, #5's, Donovan blocks, 6pack, for under 100k!!!! Now figure in that you might be able to strike a deal closer to your $$ figure!!! (we can always bring the front of your shop out another 10ft!!!)

Oh, and like Steve said.......Find a FIXER-UPPER!!! You know that's what I've always done!! You just have to have the kahoni's to Cowboy up and buy when you see the DEAL!!! Of coarse that means I have had to make two boat payents at the same time.....but with creative finicaning it can be done pretty easy!!!
