Don't know much about the 24's but the 33's are built solid and runs great in chitty seas. Pretty deep hulls. The only thing I suggest is to check the rigging really carefully. THe hulls are ok, but there were some issues with the finishing and rigging in the past. Nothing major, just quility issues. THe old owner of Avanti boats is an as ** *le.. well.. I leave it at that. But the boats are great. Avanti Boat Co. is sold, and the molds are being used by Egg Harbor.
