Default Nor-tech, statement, deep impact, others?

I am just beginning to look for a boat for the family, will use it 85% for cruising, going to the local islands, and 15% or less fishing, I have seen nor- tech boats online but never in person , I have seen statement 350 and deep impact 36 recently and both were very nice. I am looking for a boat 32-37 in size, looking for some feedback on all 3 boats and any others that would be competitors to these 3 boats, new to this type boat do any information would be very helpful

Want to say this was just posted a month or so ago (not by you).

All 3 are amazing and each have a "flaw" and a "bonus". What I can say is there is no bad boat out of that list. To me you need to at minimum walk around on all 3, look at the space, the amenities, and see what fits you

All 3 are great and have amazing qualities and are built tough

I have driven the statement and have owned 2 Nor-techs. I personally think the NT is a better boat all around but they do cost more than a Statement. I am not knocking statement in any way, very cool boats. I just prefer the NT ride, style and features.

NT, wider beam, faster hull w/ same HP, better rough water capability, larger helm= increased wind / rain protection, superior resale value to the others.

To be fair each and every boat he listed has good speed within 5mph of each other with same power and all will have great rough water ride.

It's not like one is miles ahead of the other when it comes to those items.

I understand Nate BUT if 1 brand is 5mph faster, has better rough water capability which includes being a dryer hull, offers more wind protection & has the best resale value don't all those things add up?

Lets reverse engineer the comparison, list all the Con's of a Nor-Tech, just the Nor-Tech, anyone can chime in.
I've owned 3 so I should be able to vet out & or confirm those who have never owned a NT or been on one.
I have never owned either of the 2 other brands.

BTW- the OP of this thread is welcome to message me any time directly for NT feedback.
