I'd look at Nautic Star for a new boat in that price range. One thing I WOULDN'T do is buy a package deal that's underpowered like dealers love to sell.
Nautic Star is 100% composite, fit and finish is top notch. The warranty is lifetime of the boat, even if it changes owners. We had one for 6 years and loved it. My brother sold it to buy a flats skiff.
