Many of those for sale.

There are 2 CC 28's for sale on this site alone.

What don't you like about either of these boats?

Gee that looks exactly like my list the last time I was looking to buy another boat! I decided I didn't want any boat payments so I wanted to pay cash for a boat. I happened to find a 28' Baha hard top and I went to look at it. The guy that owned it was in his 4th degree of cancer and only had a few months to live. He was literally crying about wanting to sell the boat before he passed so his family wouldn't have to screw with it. The boat only had 600 hours on it and in really good condition. I felt bad for the guy so I bought the boat for his full asking price, the price was fair and I didn't have the nerve to try to talk him down.

Anyway....Baha's are known to have problems with stringer rot and this boat had the stringers totally rebuilt 2 years prior to me buying it so I knew that was never going to be an issue. I figured I would keep the boat for a season and then sell it but once I got used to a single inboard I started to like the boat. A hard top is the only way to go for me, I will never own another boat without a hard top. I have a larger fishing area than the 27' Sportcrafts the charter guys run and I have never been in a boat that can take rough water like this boat. This is my 3rd season and I have never felt the boat slam into a wave. I have never had a day that I didn't go out either, just put the tabs down and go. Water over the bow runs off of the hard top and just leave the wipers on.

My point is that you may want to open your choices up to other types of boats.

Not completely out of the question. Trying to stay in the 25-28 ft range, but would consider any of these, if the right one came along.
Don't see too many fresh water Blackfins, or Stamas around my area.

I know of a Stamas that meets your requirements for sale in our marina. I can find out what broker is selling it or find out more details if you're interested. It is a friend's boat and is very nice.

Just a heads up I would avoid anything with a Volvo 8.1 particularly if they are Carolina Classic. I had a terrible experience with those Motors in a cc 28.

Interesting... I have always heard that the Volvo's were the engines to get.
What were the issues that you ran into?

check south shore marine, they broker a lot of used pursuits.

I picked up an '05 Pursuit 2870WA four years ago. Had to get it in FLA though and bring it up. So far so good, and the F225s haven't rotted out or shown any signs of it! And no, its not for sale.

Various problems including water ingestion blown bottom ends sensor problems. Things are best used as anchors in my opinion

It's a 1972, may only be 24', w/ a tilt trailer. Asking $6500. If you're still interested, let me know and I can give you the owners number. He can tell you all about it and send you pictures. It's located in West Harbor at Catawba Island, OH(Port Clinton area) It's a beautiful boat w/ all new canvas & isinglass.

Thanks, but its way older than I am looking for. Would like to stay newer than 2000. 70K budget
Thanks for checking into it for me though. Much appreciated.

That's what I had heard about Volvo engines, until they brought out the 8.1.

I have heard a fair numbers of stories about the 8.1 being a Volvo "oops".

Many various issues, but most seem to be to do with the bottom end.....cranks, rods, bearings etc.
