Maybe we should change the name of Gordo's thread to:
"What can I buy for under $60k?"
That would take care of a lot of the suggestions here..

I too was in the same situation when I was buying (shiz, I am boatless now).
I wanted to spend 40k, then I looked at 50k, then 60k, then 70k.... You guessed it. I wound up spending more than 70...but I got a real nice boat.
This is what I bought... twin 502 mags. Great boat. It was a '99. I recently sold it for what your budget is. The boat ran just under 80. It could have broken 80 with some work..

Personal advice: Don't try to "stretch" what your budget can honestly get you.. or you'll wind up with a POS.

A 33 Powerplay would be just right..provided you can find one with engines that aren't tired....
FYI- I just ran Albert's 28 Pantera this weekend. Yeah it's an X race boat with a NEW single 750.. but it does 85 easily... I know he's considering selling. A couple pics from Sunday for ya.

I knew the boat you were referring to. I've actually talked to Doug a few times about it. Been in it myself when it had the big power. It's also had a long, hard life.
There have been some sweet boats mentioned here. I wish I had the means for a few of the top picks. I must admit I would love to see a 33 PowerPlay for the right price. Now to make things a little more difficult, I'd like to stick with Bravo drive boats.
I keep trying to send the Cig Mystique I mentioned before, but it keeps saying "File too large"...

Gordo, Yes being poor and wanting a bigger boat I have that problem too. In the classifieds under the Formula section Toolman has a very nice 303 w/ 502`s efi probably low 70s than add prochargers later, but the boat and trailer should be in your price range.

Hope this helps.

Brad,
I was thinking I would not be interested in another Velocity, but the one you posted sounds like fun. The Formulas look really nice, but if I go that route I'd like to get a Fastec hull.
I am very familiar with the Sunsations and really like them. I'm hoping Dave H. will be at the boat show this weekend?
I've been to the Nordic plant a couple of times, but wasn't paying any attention to the 35 at the time. Never seen one, never been in one. The speeds with stock power looks impressive, Of course new is out of my price range, but would like to do some more research on these...
