    Re: motion 35 vs spectre 36

    I went thorugh the same search like you a few years ago. I tested a 35 Motion and a 36 Spectre. Both had big power and Sixes. For some reason the Spectre had a much harsher ride in rough water. I bought the Motion. As for creature comforts, they are both custom boats. I see no advantage in either boat in that department. Only who had it built with what options. I do not see any difference in resale value.

    I also think the Motion has a nicer ride. The Spectre was a much harder ride in bumpy water. The Spectre also sounds much louder when it hits. The echo inside the hull is very loud. It sounds like your hitting concrete when you re-enter the water. The Spectre also Porpoise's between 70 and 85. Most Spectres need a tunnel tab. The Motion NEVER porpoises and I think it's a much smoother ride. Like I said, i owned both.

    I have always been very impressed with the clean lines of the Motion. One thing I have noticed is they do not stay on the market long. I would say resale is strong on them.

    Have spoken to some guys that have raced them and they told me they are tough and hard core. I guess that means they are very well built.

    Here are a few pictures of the Motion's on a Poker Run we did.

    I also perfer the extra seating in the Spectre...4 in the rear works better than 3......
