    It all depends on what you want, gas/diesel, length, V-Bottom, Cat, Cruiser, amount that one can afford, etc, etc...

    As for a go fast boat, I currently own a 42' Fountain Poker Run w/ twin 557 CI Sterling Race engines (1350hp ea) which didn't come in the PR...

    many thanks for the links guys

    V65 your 42' fountain looks pretty cool, i did some reading on that, do you know how much a brand new 2007 will cost?

    I am not sure what i am after, i simply want to travel 500 miles in the shortest amount of time while riding at a safe speed with 8 people on the boat. I will be traveling the whole 500 miles in a complete straight line, maybe a few of those miles will bend a bit to get to my destination. I also want a boat in which i can travel at a very fast speed while also not needing to refuel for that whole 500 mile journey while still going at a safe speed. What sort of speed do you recommend this will be?

    So are there any boats like this out there, i don't know if i want a power boat, i would like a luxury looking boat not too long, 2 areas on the boat so people can sun bathe, a ice rack for soft drinks, water ski locker, water ski tower, swim up platform, and that's all really and not too expensive, expensive but not too epxensive, you know what i mean.

    So is there anything like that you guys know of?

    TIA

    It varies alot, prices can go from 450k on up, depends on your engine options... But then again, a PR seats only 4 with no cabin...

    It sounds like you want something somewhat fast, and seat 8 with some range, I suggest going the express cruiser route...

    hey thanks for the reply

    can you get an express cruiser with a fuel tank that can travel a range of 500 miles before needing to refuel, that is what i am after.

    Also a cruiser with perhaps the possibility of doing 500 miles while traveling at 100 - 200 MPH?

    TIA

    My goodness, I read another thread you started, and you want a ski/wakeboarding boat for under 100k, go with MaterCraft or similar... As for a 500 mile range, get a diesel powered truck and tow it...:D
