Ours is fully loaded, 500 EFIs, runs 66 with a weekends worth of crap and fuel, 69 with 2 people and super low on fuel.

Good to know. Iím thinking I still want the 382 it just sounds a little more appealing to me. But sounds like you have my entire wishlist. I keep looking at one from big thunder marine that keeps catching my eye and itís exactly everything I want even down to the color scheme. Just wish I was ready to pull the trigger now instead of having to hold off till next year at the earliest.

I'm currently in the market for a 382 as well (have agreed price and put deposit in on one!). I also looked at the 353s, I ultimately went with the 382 because I am looking to overnight the boat and I think it will be more comfortable both getting where I am going and sleeping on. I also really couldn't find a 353 at the right price. I test drove the 382 I am moving forward on and LOVED the way the boat felt! I have not test drove a 353, so can't comment on how that rides.

Both are great boats and best of luck finding one!
