Both are excelent choices. I am a firm believer that bigger is better I would go with the 35 unless storage or trailering is an issue.

You need to put both in the water and drive or ride in them. That will go a long way to making up your mind. Both are good boats.

You need to spend some time driving both boats. IMO the 35 Fountain is a lot more boat. Would pick it over the 32 Sunsation any day of the week.

My opinion is that a step bottom boat would not be the best choice for someone without any experience in a performance boat. You can't just jump in one and drive it like you stole it. What kind of boating experience to you have to this point?

Best choice for what? What type of boating do you do? Are there certain things you need in a boat? Why did you narrow your search to these two boats? Both of these boats are nice rides with their own strengths and weaknesses. It is hard to say which one is the better choice, it all depends on your likes and needs.

If he's looking at a 35 Executioner (just guessing there) it behaves very much like a non step hull. None of the slippery feeling like some of the more aggressive twin step hulls.

Either boat is a big step to be taking if you are not experienced with offshore boats. That being said, you need to get both boats on the water with an experieinced captain to help you make your decision. Given the choice, I would go with the Fountain...and this is coming from a big fan and supporter of Sunsation.

Good grief! Are these two boats your only choices?

I would choose neither and start over!

This boat is blow-out priced and needs an owner. 525EFIs takes it to 92mph; and the ride blows away any of the other boats you mention.

Drop me an email if you have any questions.
