    Default Interested in a Performance Boat

    Hi All,
    New to performance boats but not new to boating. Had a 20' I/O bowrider for 15 years and sold it. Kids are grown and my wife and I are ready for the next boat. Any ideas as to what we should get? Not looking to tube or wakeboard. looking for comfortable and fast for local lakes or Delta.

    Where do you do plan to boat?? Small lakes=Smaller boat.. If you want to run the delta out to the bay you may want more boat..

    For me I sold on tunnels... Daytona's to be specific...

    So a 25' Daytona is a great all around boat... Leave it stock.. or stuff a big HP motor and upgrade the drive and you have a 125+ MPH boat.

    Another option would be to go to boat gathering at a lake and see a lot of different boats in person maybe hitch a ride in one that peaks your interest. Where are you located how big of a hurry are you to purchase

    I agree the 25 Daytona is the way to go. Its not too big for the lake and not too small for the Delta. I picked one up at the beginning of summer and I have 0 regrets.
