Hens teeth spring to mind... Very little out there that is diesel and will do that type of speed let alone for a reasonable budget. I guess that is why people take to repowering boats like the fella on here who has put a diesel in a cougar 27.

Most fast off-shore boats are american and tend to be petrol V8s (Donzi, Baja, Formula, Cig, Velocity, Hustler etc). There are a few old sunseekers kicking about but strong money and wont do those type of speeds. A few Ribs too (scorpions etc) but again, strong money.

This looks like a good shout but is the exception, not the norm and a bit marmite. http://www.boatmad.com/forum/showthr...highlight=baja

The reality though is that unless you plan to use it v regularly or can find an Extreme (not many about), probably better off with a petrol. More to chose from and cheaper to maintain from what I gather. Best of luck

Thanks for the reply The Docta. The problem is that a lot of the places I want to use it dont have petrol in the harbours. The only real one that seems to fit the bill that I know of is the extreme just wanted to see if I was missing out on other good boats?

New or second hand?

If new Ring Powercraft still do the 25' Sports Boat or the 25' Ranger Day Cabin. Same hull just a different lay out. Both capable of the speeds you want with the right lump. Best of all made in this country....
