Default Flats boat question

What is the best flats/bay boat do you guys think one could get under 20000?
Used or new don't matter I know it depends on every individual. I want to know what your opinions are ?
thanks

Maverick or Hewes are hard to beat. Ranger Ghost is also nice. I'd go with a Maverick personally.

I have a Hewes Redfisher 16 and it's great. But it only holds four, and that's kind of tight even though one of them is a six year old. Sucks when I have a couple who wants to go fishing because somebody has to stay behind...

Eod what power do you have on that 16?
I usually fish 2-3 Max. .

I know there is compromise with any boat is there any that are capable of fishing fairly shallow but still able to fish the pass and a couple miles out? I know it expieriance and weather will be a determining factor ..
