Default West Coast 28-30ft

Which west coast builders make the best 28-30ft boat for offshore use? Thanks for your input.

Lavey Craft is your #1 choice west coast builder for offshore in that size. I assume you want a single. Why only West coast? I was told by a Lavey Craft race driver my Superboat handles better than his race boat. I bought it in NY and had it delivered to SoCal.

I would go LaveyCraft for sure! There are super nice guys and build a great boat. Warlock has gone down hill and doesn't make as good as a boat anymore. (I have been to both their factories in the last 1-2 years)

Have a look at Howard Custom Boats & Schiada Boats, both very nice. The closest Schiada has is 32', but still worth checking out.
