before i settled on the cruiser, i had my mind set on a speed boat. baja, donzi, something similar. you just don't see that around here, nor is it very practical. that boat has more creature comforts and is the top-of-the-line sea ray for it's size. boats with cabin's are useless here unless air conditioned because the water and air temps are so warm year round. the boat is no slouch either...it weighs only 500 lbs more than an equivalent baja with the same engine has near the same economical cruise speed and only about 10mph slower top speed. at the end of the day, i'll be taking more long trips in it and going fast is just going to cost a shit ton more in expensive marina gas. this boat will also be more comfortable.
but one day.......
