Default 30-33 center consoles

not going to happen this year but next boat will be a 30-33' center console with outboards, probably spend in the 40-60K range, speed is not the number one factor, need a boat that is built to handle rough water, we are at the mouth of the chesapeake bay and it can get extremely rough around here.

rank these boats from a quality/ride standpoint,

33 Powerplay
30 Concept
302 Scarab
29-30 Renegade
30 Lightning
30 Carrera
32 Dakota
328 Glasstream

So far I like the
32 Sonic (Dakota)
32 Concept
32-35 Donzi
Still looking at more

the Glasstream build and rigging did not impress me.

We just bought a 33' Powerplay CC. We love the layout. As far as build quality, they are top notch.

Surprised you think the Renegade is better quality than Concept. PP would be my first choice just few and far between. What about the Scarabs? never heard any negatives and beacuse there so many around you can get them relatively cheap.

Superboat is currently building a 30 ft. CC outboard model. It has a race proven hull in offshore racing. Best bang for the buck. Call John Cohen at 631-226-1761.
