Boat selection (suggestions please).

Looking for a change of direction. I've had all sorts of things in the past, I currently have a Princess V45 but fancy going back to something more like boating rather than caravaning (and would like to release some equity).

The criteria is as follows:
2004 - 2013.
Must not look like a Jelly Mould.
30 to 38 feet.
45 knots plus.
Good sized cockpit.
Room for my wife and I to overnight in reasonable comfort (with seperate heads).
Budget: 110K max.
Not a great fan of RIBs (sorry Rubber Men).

I've considered the following:
Hunton XRS37 (top of my list so far).
Various Windys (not too sure about the looks).
Various Formulas (hard to find one that meets all the above in the UK).
Various Cobalts (360 ideal but as per above).
Sunseeker Super Hawk (getting a bit old now).
Sunseeker XS 2000 (cabin a bit small?).
Goldfish 32 (hard to find).

The list goes on but can any of you guys suggest any contenders.
Thanks
Andy

Thanks. I've had a Formula and a Cobalt in the past, fantastic well built boats. May well go for another one but Hunton still top of my list. Just wondering if anyone could think of anything I may have missed.

I guess it depends on what you want..... do you want a balls out toy... like an american boat.. fountain formula etc? i am assuming the hunton is slightly more a luxury boat?
which ever way...... dead jelous haha. good luck in your hunt.

A second hand Hunton is what I would go for - Sadly ours would be perfect but not enough creature comforts (no separate heads) and no second hand leisure versions around either. American boats look great but they tend to suffer a bit in UK waters.

This is the race version of what we do, the leisure version comes with or without the roof but every version comes with the windscreen:

Hi Cookee

I saw in one of the boating magazines that you were advertising a leisure version but guessed that it may be a little short on creature comforts (certainly looks a stunning boat). Good luck with future sales.

Thanks very much - We have designed a slightly taller version which doesn't alter the look too much but gives more headroom, sadly a new one would be over budget!

Hi guys

Thanks for the replies.
Love the Hydrolift, I will do some investigating but suspect the big ones may be a bit pricey.
Baja 405 looks good but I guess it would have to be imported from the States.
Sorry not a big fan of Bavaria's.
I've been looking on Martin's web site for a while now. The ex demo is above budget but the one in Wales fits the bill. Just have to sell the V45.

Cheers
Andy

I have heard rumours about a velocity up for sale in your price range? would that interest you?
