Default WTB 23-26 Offshore capable boat

Hello everyone I've been looking around for awhile now and have looked at a few boats but they have been pretty abused.
What I'm looking for
23-26' center console or open deck vessel like the 23 parker sport cabin.
My budget is 25k.
I like Parker's, Steiger, Seacraft, Grady White, Privateer and others that are like what I describe. Prefer outboards 2 or 4 stroke is fine. I realize I don't have a big budget so I'm pretty realistic in my expectations. I'm pretty handy so some elbow grease doesn't scare me.
Don't expect it to be turn key but shouldn't be a wreck either.
Maybe you can help me find my next boat
If I left anything out let me know.

I've had Parker 23 CC
PRIVATEER 24 Renegade
18 Lund Alaskan

Check out my thread on the same. If you weed through the crap, you may find some good info and maybe a boat or 2. Good luck.

A tad over your budget, but may be worth checking out. It's not mine by the way.

Look for a North Coast 24. There are usually one or two on sale on this site. They seem to go in that general price range.

Bang for buck, get a used panga. Versatile, efficient, and fun.

I have a north coast 24, a very capable boat for its size. It is for sale . An updated pair of used engines would make it an awesome package.

I have a gw 226 seafarer listed on this site. It sounds like it may fit your criteria.

Thank you everyone for your listings and input. I've got a couple of PM's out and waiting to hear back for more information. Keep the listings coming I'm bound to find something. 23' is really as small as i want to go. Boat needs to have a T top and live well. Closed transom is important but would look at all hulls depending on the maker.
Thank You again,
Glenn
