One place to check other than just here is scream&fly.com

The STV with the most room is a Euro.

Four seats and it has a far amount storage. When I bought mine I had a stock 200 Mercury that even had oil injection on it. ran in the 90's with one on board.

You can find one in the price range your looking for it might just take some time.

We have a friend here that has a 2005 River Rocket for sale with no motor.

It's a real nice boat with four seats but the cockpit of the Rocket is narrower than the Euro.

I think the lenght is the same. The Euro can't be beat for the fast Family type of boat if you want a tunnel. We have ski, tubed, wake boarded, knee boarded off the boat with no problems.

The only boats that Ive had is STV and Hydrostreams. Older boats can be a problem. My Hydrostream is 32 years old and I had to rebuild the floor in it from rot. Look over the older boat real good. take a rubber mallet with you to thump the hull for soundness. Good luck with your search.
