First tell us:
1budget,
2new or age you'd settle for,
3 how many do you regularly carry and how old are they,
4would you generally be a fair weather boater or an all weather boater,
5what do you use the boat for diving/fishing/short cruises or long/skiing et
6 do you have a max length for storage
7 are you a Beckham or RNLI wannabee

Then people can help - though you're in OZ

Yes: Olympic flash boat with lights and rockets

Utilitarian or Mediterranean
Orange /black or Blue and white stripe
Jockey or sun loungers
GPS or iPod dock
Nav lights or blue deck lights

Neither are worse, just very different styles which help give advice to an appropriate boat
