It would still be a tad shy. There are some great looking and performing CC's, but to me they just aren't the same, and that's coming from a guy who's first new boat was a CC, that I still own, and it would be the last boat I'd sell. Granted, it's not a performance CC, but I have run with several. Maybe it's just me, but CC's feel more like an appliance to me. They just don't get my juices flowing like a closed bow performance boat, with twin BBC's.

It all comes down to what you like and your needs, you will never go wrong with either boat.
You positive about those speeds? I've run and owned and seen boat tests and those and they seem optimistic...not putting down these super nice boats but I just know what they run in the real world....interesting though.

I also like the Regulators but do not know much about them. Again thanks for the help.

Bryan

Regulator builds a stout well made boat but no creature comforts...totally hardcore fishing. The Concept 36 and Donzi 35zf roll around at anchor or drift the same. If you want a more stable boat at rest and anchor and a deep V you will need 10+ beam. My Fountain 38 CC is a 10'6" beam and pretty darn stable.
to me the Concept slices through the rough stuff better than the Donzi 35ZF. I looked hard at both brands for about a year back in 2002-03 when I bought a 36 Concept...I sold it in August 2005 for my Fountain CC.

If you want some sport style, stout build, creature comforts and great fishing features look at the 31 Jupiter too. Also the 35 Marlago is very nice and looks great too.

If I could only make 1 recomendation to you on buying a center console...make dang sure the one you get is SELF BAILING!!!!

Are you willing to bet on that?

Whatcha bringing to the party? I said there may be a handful that can outrun my resin bucket, but they are few and far between.
