The 43 Nor-Tech with twin 700s/NXT would be a much better choice.

I don't like triples, but in this case, look at and drive both and see what boat works the best for you.

The advantage of having triples is this: You can run more efficient/faster with smaller power. They handle great and parking is easier with the triples. (your third engine works as a compensator to the two outside engines.) Your overall maintenance/cost is lower with the smaller engines than the larger twins to achieve the same speed.

I have found that most people that don't like the triples have never had them, This is not a dig, just an observation from a person who runs triples.

As far as comparing the boats themselves, both can be great setups, a test drive is the best way to see what feels right for you!

I see your point, but you still have another engine to take care of. I wouldn't pass the right boat because of it, but it still wouldn't be my first choice. Triples definitely are cooler, no doubt!

bravo's are just that.. Easy on the throttles..all the time..especially on the heavier boat...personally, not for me.. but...all other reasons to get the NT have been mentioned.

Both are amazing boats, whichever is the overall best bang for the buck will make you the most happy.

If you use your cabin a lot, Nortech

If not both are amazing.
