Thinking of the next boat. ...I'd love to get a hold of a Magnum Sport. -hard to find.

What are some boats to put on the list that would have the same style character and maybe simlar performance to the classic 22?

anyone have an opinion or two?

Owned a number of these style boats:
1975 18 Donzi
1987 20 Donzi
1978 28ss Cig
1989 24 Pantera
1997 24 Superboat
1999 28 Velocity (maybe not a classic)
and now a 1996 22 Donzi

next I'm likely to go back where I started with an 18 Donzi
but if I was to go larger again, I'd be looking for a 28 Pantera single engine.
my 28Cig was an all time favorite but the up keep of having 2 engines/drives forced me to sell.
The 28' Pantera is almost the same boat...

Banana made a 24 but I can't recall if there was anything else that they did between that and 30'
Same basic hull as the Cig 24 / Mag 25

I'm going to beat Greg Guimond to the punch:





I know the 23 and 29 are outside your size request, but they made sizes between those, so I included them for reference. You can often find great deals on these boats, probably because they are not as well known as others.

I'm partial to the Euro series

Did I miss any Greg? :)

I know I'm going to get crucified for this, but, I think it's a lot of boat even if it's not really 27' (beak and swim platform)........ http://www.boattrader.com/listing/2004-FOUNTAIN-27-Fever-677174

the more i see this i like it has classic deep v lines

I'd imagine it should be a lively ride with the 650 ilmor indy combo
