You could look into an ultimate 24 or B25, ultimate 20. All boats are 'fast'. How fast do you want to go?

Thank you all for the replies.
The Laser Bahia is a boat that I have wondered about. I have not seen one. The same is true of the Laser 16, Laser Stratos, and Laser SB3, which also might be possibilities. The VX One looks great, but there are no good deals on used boats. The same is true of the Open 5.70, RS K6, and Viper 640. The Ultimate 20 looks good, too. Are there any used ones for sale at a reasonable price?
As for how fast I want to go . . . Just fast enough so that other similar size boats can't pass me - unless they are catamarans. (The Highlander has about the same PN handicap as a 29er but is much bigger.)
Please let me know if you can think of any other "big" boats that are also fast - and affordable.
