Default Cat-Hull/DECKBOAT, 30-32-ish feet long, twin 496/525... Who makes a quality boat?

My neighbor is looking to move into something as described as above. This is more than likely going to be a West Coast built boat. He is looking for something that is made very well, and will not have a bunch of outstanding issues when it makes it out to the East Coast.

He is NOT looking for an openbow option Cat.

Magic?

Advantage?

Who else/what else is out there?

Thanks in advance.

Don't forget to check out the E-Ticket deck boats, they are great fast deckboats that can handle some surprising big water!

This is a tad shorter than 30, and I don't think they do twins, but I'd have him look at Trident for sure. It can hold as many people as a 30, and is supposed to ride very nice. Further, they are getting sold in some east cost dealerships, Pier 57 maybe? This was designed from the getgo as a deck and not a cat, so it is definitely optimized for the job in my opinion.

If sold on twins than I second (or third) E-Ticket.
