150hp 22' sps benny will do 35mph... probably buyable for $38k or so i'd bet...
just built one.

not going crazy on options...

you can do a 22SL with SPS package for 41k msrp with a 200 yamaha on the back.

similar to this:



you could buy that boat ALL DAY for under 35k.

coast guard capacity of 12, 13 if you went with a 175

https://www.boats.com/reviews/go-boating-boat-test-formula-240-br/

We had a chance to test the Formula 260 BR last year, so we were looking forward to wrapping our hands around the throttle of the 240 BR. We had three people aboard our test boat and a half tank of fuel (about 30 gallons or 188 pounds). For power we had a 320 hp MX 6.2 MPI Horizon MerCruiser with a Bravo III drive spinning a 24-inch cupped three-blade stainless steel prop set.

Acceleration was respectable with 7.5 seconds to plane and a 0- to 30-mph time of 9.9 seconds. The 240 BR weighs about 5,000 pounds without fuel, gear or people, so acceleration isn't going to be as snappy as a lightweight sportboat with a big engine.

We posted a top speed of 47.5 mph at 5,000 rpm on our GPS, which would give you a top-speed range of about 104 miles. Sound at top speed was 94 dBa, which is consistent with other runabouts. Our most efficient cruising speed was 30.8 mph at 3,500 rpm, which yielded a cruising range of 154 miles. Sound at cruising speed was 87 dBa, which is in the range we like to see for cruising.

if someone were considering a "new" jetboat... i'd be much more inclined to shove them this way as hard as i could:

Chaparral 210 SunCoast (2016-) 2016 Reviews,performance,compare,price,warranty, specs,Reports,Specifications Layout, video | BoatTEST.com





With a 200-hp Mercury Verado 4-stroke outboard, the Chaparral 210 SunCoast ran a top speed of 47.8 mph at 6100 rpm. She burned 21.1 gph, giving us a range of 102 statute miles. Our best cruise came at 3500 rpm, where she ran 22.1 mph and burned 4.5 gph, giving us a range of 221 statute miles.
Acceleration.
With a half tank of fuel and two people on board, we had a test weight of 3,715 lbs. (1,685 kg). The 210 SunCoast planed in 3.4 seconds and took another 1.5 seconds to hit 20 mph and we reached 30 mph in 7.3 seconds.
