Key West has a 23' Sea Swril has a couple between 23-26" Parker, Stieger would all rank on my short list.... just depend's on how deep you pockets really are would you reather have 2-3 years old (bigger) for same money as a new shorter rig? we reall will need top dollar also look at the trading dock here some realy good deal's to be had. if you go used simply spend the money on a survey!!!!! ...john

Second the Albemarle. Provided you don't need the bow. Then look at a walkaround.
I'm looking at used Albes and they are all built very well! The used ones are great boats as well.

do what all of us have done search search search-- then buy what will may your mate happy--then next time you can say you chose the first boat -- no matter what you buy-- you will be looking in a few years---You have to make a check list based on WHAT you think you need-- Next do the reseach-- the people on this board are great--they are strong on brands but don't be blind by YAMS and Scouts---others are great--- make sure you have someone to work your purchase pay the additional $$ if reasonable--If you are in salt I would buy an OB however if fresh I/O-- however once again look at you list--after purchasing get all the manual and if you are a motor head get the shop manual- READ THEM and enjoy boating but always remenber there are only two good days 1st-- the day you get your boat 2nd-- the day you sell you boat. GOOD LUCK

What is your budget? Don't think anyone can give you an answer until we know how much you want to spend, and if you would consider used?
