I agree. I checked out their cruisers at the Chesapeake Boat Show (just looking -- no cruiser in the future) and Rinker does give you a lot for your $$$$. The price differential between Sea Ray and Rinker is pretty significant. One thing, however, I've noticed is that Sea Ray's tend to hold their values a little better on the used market. I don't know if that's due to a better product or just a better reputation and marketing. This is just my $.02 -- and take it as such. I have never owned either, nor do I know anyone who has owned either.
