I'm not sure about the pricing on Bluewater and competition but you should be able to get a new Bluewater 2550 which is a 28 ft boat for under 100k or around it right?
I do have a Bluewater 2550 now... Looking to upgrade to something bigger.

Just check out Craigslist. There are hundreds of boats right in your back yard that will meet your needs.

Just buy 2 boats. Get a 6-8 yr. old 26' Regulator for fishing, and a dual console "whatever" for cruising. I bet it can be done for under $100k.

My two cents, Robalo...either center consoles or walkarounds. All high quality and family friendly and a great fishing vessel.

You are going to get much bigger than the Bluewater 2550 under 30 ft....that boat screams room for an under 30 ft boat. more room than a 28 ft grady or contender...Why not upgrade to a 31 or get another 2550?

Go buy a 27 cat walk through with forward seating and a great big fishing cockpit I have a Glacier bay which is more setup for fishing but the World Cat is a little more family friendly from what I have seen. Lots of seats cup holders soft cushions and still has a lot of fishing room. And with your budget you can get all of the bells and whistles and really load that thing out......

I would look at the intrepid 310 walkaround! Fast, economical, trailerable, and will fish just fine.

Best ride on the planet for a trailerable boat.

29 World Cat DC. The best family fishing ride out there IMO.

Never mind. If you want 50 mph, you are not going to get halfway there with a Fortier.

I'd go a little bigger and get the Grady 330. It can fish and it can take your family away for the weekend in comfort and style.

Stay away from the sailfish fished the 30 cc and a 26 a couple times last year and we stayed wet the whole time and the live well on the 30 came apart on us on an overnight trip. Both boats were only 2- 3 years old and very low hours... just sayin find yourself a 27 or a 29 cat and call it good.... you will be pleased
