To help you narrow down the choices, give us an idea what you're thinking of doing with it. Are you looking for something to run on a small pond near home? Or perhaps on a larger lake while you're out boating. Perhaps you're thinking of getting into racing? Each might result in a different choice. For example, if you're going to run on an open lake, you might be better off with a mono hull since they handle waves better. If you're running on a small pond, you'll need to limit the size and speed. If you're thinking of getting into racing, it'll be best to first determine the classes that the local club(s) run so you don't show up with a boat that doesn't fit in.

Any previous experience will help also and if you already own some equipment that can do double-duty is another plus.
What type of powerplant you prefer and how much you'd like to invest would help narrow things down.
I do know what it's like shopping for a first (or sixth for that matter) boat as it's hard to narrow it down to just one. There are many good boats out there but then again, a lot of junk to watch out for.
