Default 32 Spectre or 36 Gladiator

90% of my boating will be in lake Havasu... occasionally the ocean... SCOPE etc. I've had a twin turbo Hallett Vector and 25 blown daytona. Have not been in either boat and need your EXPERT OPINIONS.
Thx all

32 spectre hands down if your not worried about insurance cost.... you are gonna get 15-20 MPH more top speed, better fuel economy, higher cruising speeds....and it will be cheaper purchase price...

I would probably go with the Spectre for Havasu.

With out a doubt the 32 Spectre would be my choice. I prefer cats strictly based on performance, but this is the only true tunnel I know of that does not hop at any speeds. There are also a lot of storage areas in the boat to make it a little more practical. Spectre did a great job with this boat.

Yep. I'd get the Spectre as well for that kind of situation.
