Question Looking to buy my first PleasureCat


I'm looking to buy a "PleasureCat" this winter/spring, I got alot of experience with yachts and jeeps but ive never tried a cat.

There is so many models out there, Hydrocat cr24, sportcat 22, twister 24, skater and so on, I'm basically looking for a low maintenance, "low fuel consumption" cat that will do 80-90-100knots without killing me if I hit a fish wake, is there some hulls that's more forgiving than others? what about hull strength? cruise speeds with different engines, handling at cruise speed? Max hours on a used engine?

Anyone wanna share their knowledge and tell me what to look for as a reliable solution for a weekend cruiser funtime pleasureCat?

Im thinking about a hull that's build for pleasure, fast but still reliable so that it handles waves with 4persons onboard without cracking, handles to be dragged up on a beach and handles walking on the deck, is there any boats thats build like that or do I have to find one thats been customized by a previous owner?
