Default Looking to get into a new hull 30-36"

Hello, I'm currently running a shockwave 26, which has been fine for what it is. Looking to get into something alittle bigger, I have a lake at my new house and want to upgrade alittle, I run scale gas boats and don't really know anything about the little brushless boats. Must be brushless or able to setup brushless. What's a good starting point? Thanks in advance

Prefer a rtr with available parts and upgrades, but if a reasonable priced hull was available I can go that way also. Thanks

Lots of people have gone with the traxxas boats, but I dislike the plastic hulls. I know proboat makes some larger hulls.

I've been pretty impressed with the ProBoat Voractiy E. It's a 48+ MPH boat bone stock on 6S. They come up scratch 'n' dent on eBay sometimes for under $300.

I picked up a used proboat miss geico 29" from an older gentleman several months ago. He included 4 lipos and a trailer and I paid $250. It's a fun boat that handles well I just can't get down the battery points to prevent it from bouncing.

I've had the blackjack as well and both are great boats that handle the water well.

Pro boat UL19 or Voracity deep V would be perfect for you. The hulls are very stout, fiberglass not plastic.
