Everything is either an entry level POS, or a luxurious yacht? What happened to normal boats for normal people? Like a 25'er with a versatile layout, plenty of deck space, and a sleep-able cabin if a cuddy cabin without a million cushions and two wet bars? Do people not use their boats for anything but the sandbar anymore? Also, why does no manufacturer make a practical cuddy cabin anymore? The cuddies I have seen from Bayliner and Formula, are either too big (Formula) or have no deck space and so many cushions that there is no usable deck space. What gives? It seems the last well-

Hi - I am hoping to join the Caparral community after years of (some would say misguided) Sea Ray ownership. I am in the market to buy either a 276 SSI or SSX (depending on price!) ideally with volvo penta. The boat will be operated in SW Florida, but towing a reasonable distance to get it there need not be a barrier. Any help with my search out there? Many thanks
