Default WTB 30-35 express

I'm looking for an express style boat to split time fishing and weekends away with the following:

-180k budget
-outboard power (newer power a plus)
-generator
- atleast a 30mph cruise


on the top of my list is the regulator 30 but nothing on the market at the moment has worked out so lets hear some suggestions?

This will be an interesting thread...

There are some Carolina express boats with outboards...Regulator made a nice 30, Contender makes lots of different configurations.

I'm a bit over your budget, but here's a link to the listing for my boat which is currently for sale. You can PM, email or call me, if you want to discuss further.

Not really an express but it would be under budget and has new power that would vastly exceed your 30kt cruise parameter. I've got a 2008 Contender 31FA. One of the last ones off the line before they quit making that hull. In 2017 it underwent a complete makeover. That refit included;
New white Suzuki DF300's (now has 45 hours on them)
All new Simrad NSS12/4G radar/1kw ducer
New JL Audio system/amp
All new Batteries
All cushions but one replaced
Every pump replaced
New custom dash with labeled switches/new breakers
Dual Icom VHF's with independent antenna's and wiring
New Marsh Tacky CF outriggers
Under gunnel LED's
Fresh bottom paint
Newish triple axle 14,500lb trailer
Other stuff I can't recall right now

Boat has a custom fold down tower (no controls) and has to be one of the newest and nicest 31FA's anywhere. I looked at 5 different 31FA's before I bought this one. Have a clean Florida title in hand and a mountain of receipts. Probably sell it for $150k ish.

I'm very happy with my Pursuit 315 OS. I checked out a lot of the boats on that list before I decided on the Pursuit. For me, it was the best all around for my needs.

Looking for the same unicorn...

There are a couple of Contenders on the market on the east coast...assume you've seen them. Hoping some more pop up as it gets warmer.

Love those boats! They dropped the ball on the interior in the v berth though, so dated looking.

When it comes to boats..function should be your first concern...looks a distant sixth.
