Talking New to Boating Question?

Hello,

Well im Currently shopping for my first Boat i live in Miami my primary use for this boat will be cruising to the keys on the weekends and some fishing here and there im interested in sport cruisers from 20' to 26' i would also like it for staying overnight on the boat for 1 or 2 nights.hopefully i can find something with some kind of shower in the cabin or cuddy.i would mostly be sleeping solo but ill have 1 or 2 guest's once in a while

What makes and models do you recommend for this ??

Thank you for the Help in Advance

There are thousands of Sea Rays all over the South Florida, nice cruising and fishing boat. For what you have described, I would go with Sea Ray!

If you spend a little more I would look into a grady white or boston whaler cuddy cabin. Better quality than a sea ray. I drive whalers in the pacific ocean for whale watching in horrible conditions and they never miss a beat. 2 weeks ago seas 10 to 14 18 knots of wind. 6 passengers all over 55 had a great time saw 6 whales.
