The Cig's/ Ocean hawks are the 01 Cig and 05 Ocean, the 05 has 275 Verados the 01 250 efi 2 strokes. The Concepts are all the same years more or less and a mix of 2 and 4 stroke power. Whatever one I buy is not going to be a fixer upper so hours will be low I don't want to have to rerig the whole boat, if I get a 2 stroke power boat I would sell the power and repower soon after buying.

More looking for input on the ride and function of the two, it seems the Concept has a little more room in front of the console with bigger seats, the Cig/Ocean has a nicer cabin But I will most likely never sleep in it. I don't fish much so fishing stuff don't matter.

verado swap is not just a switcheroo... depending on the platform mount at rigging and the lowers on the OBs it could get $$$$$$$$$$ plus the verado rerigg kit and the smart craft is like 4500.00

You don't have to run the smart craft and those funky throttles do you? I see them both ways or did they change it on the new ones ? Since I don't fish seems I don't need all those opps. you can get for trolling and stuff.

I have owned a 33/36 Concept, had it for over 5 seasons great boat, would buy another....best friend had a 99 Ocean Hawk 33 during the same period, nice boat, larger cabin and liked the ride better then my Concept, it felt a little more solid and rode more level... have two other guys at my marina with 33 Ocean Hawk's also, one with 300 Promax's and the other with Evinrude E-Tec's, the 300 boat runs right at 70MPH and the ETec boat is really set up fo fishing......

my .02!!!!!
