I hate to sound like I'm only pushing Malibu, but here
is one example of a great deal. The same hull as a 2003 Wakesetter VLX with a 1600lb. auto ballast system, and it's quite a bit under your price cap.
Again, that's just an example that I happen to know of, I'm sure you can find something similar on a Nautique Super Sport or Mastercraft Prostar 205V.
