My first question would be why do you not want a surface drive? It's just a question, but they run faster, they run in more shallow areas, they will carry a much larger load, and they are much easier to drive.
As for your question, yes a regular long tail will work on a surface drive boat. And, they will build you any size boat you wish to buy. It all depends on how much you want to spend.
Go-Devil makes some of Pro-Drives boats for them, and I had a custom 18X52 PD boat built myself (Go-Devil built it).
