A bowrider that'd be great for watersports as well as family cruising

The 190 Horizon is probably about mid-market in the US. It's a good performer but without all the bells and whistles that the Crownline range has, for example. Then again, it's a more zippy performer because it's a lighter boat.
It was powered by a Volvo Penta GXi 4.3lt V6 of 225hp and jumped quickly out of the hole, achieving a top speed of 88km/h at 4800rpm and a cruise speed of 55km/h at 3000rpm, which were pretty good figures. The boat was quite responsive at speed but a little sluggish at walking pace and the 21-inch alloy prop tended to cavitate under tight figure-of-eight manoeuvres. Go for the stainless prop every time...
