Formula top quality
I am seriously looking at a new boat in the 35 foot range. I am 99% sure my mind is made up on my next boat. However I would love to hear opinions on all of the boats that made my short list or any others that stand out.
These are the boats that made my list:
33 Active Thunder
Things that are important to me are in order:
1. Hard Core rough water performance
2. Build quality
3. cabin / cockpit size
5. did I mention; rough water performance
All of these boats in my opinion are awesome boats and I would be privileged to own any one of them. The only thing holding me back is my current ride.

[SIZE=7]CIGARETTE[/SIZE] Duuuuuuuuuur. It crushes waves better then anyother offshore boat. You know that
I don't know way anyone would but a "V" over a "cat" but the 35' Nordic would be my choice.
Quite a list !!!!....But...... Only one has the big red 1 !!
Chris,your requirements are alot like mine,i plan on jumpimg up to 35 range for my next boat,was the 35 fountain's cabin/cockpit too small to make your list,just curious,Smitty
well i like your taste very much but like birdog said only one has that #1 and we all know which is the best in the rough cig or apache. i also love the 33 powerplay but then again ya want cabin , and their cabin are very plain. i don't like cabin at all but then again i will never but never use it. keep us posted

Fountains do what they do, very well, but.......Originally Posted by articfriends
See above.....Points 1 & 5
Cig Cafe is a solid choice, the 353 Formula is another great choice and priced used...you could get a newer boat like a 99 or 2000 with 500efi power compared to buying a cafe that is 10 years old with tired power.
The other option to consider, you can find some fairly new 38 SCARABS on the market now within a price range of 90-130k, I am assuming this is the price range you are in by the list of boats you listed.
Others here on the board will probably have some useful advice, give it a day or two and then start your hunt for the right boat
PowerPlay... No bias here... hehe
