I have to be honest if you are looking for a boat thats family friendly The 38 ZX may not be the best choice. Its a fantastic boat but better suited to two. None of the cusions are the least bit comfortable and there are a few things that complicate it a bit like the fore deck can be treterous with a fresh shine, NO bow rails and the crowned shape. The sunpad is also kinda steep and can be slipery when you have a towel on it for protection. The rear seating is a sculpted four bolster style and seems kinda low to me but as of yet i dont believe i've lost any passengers though , still the bolstering is a nuisance when docked and entertaining. The boat truley is a love/hate relationship and better suited to a single guy picking up chiks It is with out a doubt one of the best looking boats ever built, in my opinion, and performs very well. I also have a ScarabIII and i actually think it is more comfortable on long weekends with more then two on board, that boat is the Griswold family truckster for the water. I can easily sleep like eight on that thing


You probably will find what you are looking for in a Sonic or Blackthunder. I always thought the Sonics were pretty well layed out.

you could get triples in the 386 and the 45 were triples so the engine comartment is where the 3 feet is
