You list a 38 Cig Playboy...I thought these were 35's
The 38 Nortech would be my choice or one of the Cig's.

YOu'r right, The PB Cig is 35' Thanks..

I like the scarab. For what it is worth a friend of mine has a 1996 38 and it rides really nice. It has the hp 500's. It'd by no means the fastest but it is a very fun , safe feeling boat. I would think the 33 would also be along these lines eccept maybe a little faster. Good luck with waht ever you pick.

Virtually no difference in weight looking at the other boats you listed.

How about some value comperrisons? I know how most of these ride, and built.
Performance, year, model input, due to the selections and year/models available.
For Ex. What’s a better “deal /value” ? 2001, Hustler 34 for $99M or 2003 Cig. 35 for $130M ?? 33's to 38's for the $? Etc...
Assuming hours, set up etc. are similar.

Thanks

I like the 2004 35 Formula for $115,000.00. It's fairly new, plenty fast for most and has a great reputation. Great family and performance boat.

I wan't everything. LMAO..
No matter what I get it will be a compromise. Tha't OK.
Best value, best performance / speed for the $, not spending a large fortune. A small fortune is bad enough.
