30 foot power boat

I am looking for suggestions for a 30foot more or less vessel that has a walk thru from a fairly large cockpit,no fly bridge easy walk around sides would be a bonus
All comments are welcome

Bayliner made a few vessels that would fit your criteria. I always liked the SeaRay Amberjack model in this size range too. Have you considered Tollycrafts?Lots to choose from.

Uniflite are good boats too...especially 1973 and before... many with fly bridge. Grady White is another high quality boat.... most without fly bridge.

Regal Express Cruiser

My Regal is 29'10" LOA and will be on the market soon, but it's an express cruiser. Doesn't seem like a match for you.

I'm still 'twixt boats, except for the Flying Scott and the dink, but the Parkers have caught my attention recently. I'm partial to the Sport Cabins, but the Walk Arounds might work for you.

Walk-arounds - Parker Boats

There was a non-FB model of this boat for sale recently in Portland, OR. I believe one of our new members bought it.

thanks all for the suggestions, Actually I have been looking at 2001 246 HSV Rosborough with a 150 HP outboard They seem a little expensive for the size therefore I am looking for something similar

The Rosborough 246s are beautiful boats and make a very economical mini trawler......but IMO you'll outgrow them pretty quick and probably want something a tad bigger.

My last boat was a 25 C Dory cruiser which is very similar to the Rosborough. I loved the layout and functionality but I craved more space and beam.

Good luck in your search.

If you are trying to buy your second boat now you might look at Mainships
Either 30P 34P Pilots or 34HT like ours...we love ours
http://dkloeber.wixsite.com/Bacchus
Not many HTs around but they are out there.
If you find the right boat & deal w a flybridge you might consider replacing FB w a hardtop...look up Ebb Tide for the transformation he did..
It is striking..
Really improved the lines IMHO

Buy a 32' Grand Banks and build your own. That's what we did.

She really is a beauty. Sedans are super. Your modification is in my eyes a definite improvement. Enjoy!

My 29' Prairie in Florida. I cut the flybridge down low. Good for storage or sunbathing. Cadillac
