I think it's interesting to see this breakdown of boats corrected for "beak and platforms" with 525's for power...
...style...resale and quality with the breakdown of prices says a lot.
The 30' Cigarette Vice is a realtively good deal per se' and being a true 30'er it aint no starter offshore with 525's and a 24 degree hull....it's comparable to many 35's out there. Would Powerboat call a 35' Fountain a "starter offshore"??
Somebody at Powerboat has tested too many 46'ers lately
A "starter offshore" is a 26' or 27'ers that have platforms... with a single or a pair of 350 magnums.
