Default Renegade vs Others (Statement/Sunsation/Etc)

I've been a fan of the brand for a while and I'm wondering how it compares to some of the other performance cc's. I plan on getting out of my 353 Fastech over the next year or so and I'll probably go cc for the comfort and people carrying capacity.

What should I expect and how would you rank performance cc's at a 35-38' size?

Don't know anything about them . Was looking at one in key west at the dock and it looked nice but they look super narrow. Not sure what the beam is compared to those other brands

Agreed. The Renegade is more similar to a Concept. They're a very narrow beam. The Statement, Spectre, Nor-Tech type is a much nicer boat.

8' beam I believe, really good lines, no nothing about build quality. 8' compared to a 10' center console is a topic I will let others reply to. Mine is a 10' beam so you know where I would lean. At LOTO I want the extra width.

The 33 and 38' Renegade have a 9' beam. Statement and Sunsation have a 10' beam. I'm wondering about quality and performance. Anyone have any experience?

They make them down here in South Florida. I was going to buy one. But i bought a 32' Fountain CC TE instead. You really notice how small a 8' beam feels when you get on a Center console that has 10' beam. Thats why i went with the fountain. BUT, Renegade makes solid boats. But you cannot compare them to statement, sunsation, nor tech, or any other high end CC builders. But switching from a 353, i think it'll be a good first center console. I think it's best to compare renegade to concept. You can also look at a 36' Sonic center console.

I have a 2013 32' Renegade . 300 Verados. 557 hours. Purchased back in 2014. Kept on lift with full lift cover and a full cover on boat. Washed after every use. Good looking boat, real head turner! In 2017, 375 hours, transom started cracking, severly cracking. Renegade in Oct 2017 did fix transom by "upgrading" to current build specs. Cost me $2,000. Unfortunately, cracking seems to be returning, 557 hours now. In 2018 powdercoat started to blister. Now looks like all powder coat needs to be re-done. I have a 1985 Cigarette and the glass work and powdercoat quality looks great. Renegade installed Eddie Marine trim tabs. Cables last two years. Renegade blames industry quality. Says I need to switch to wireless indicators. Eddie Marine says cables were installed with a too severe angle relative to tab. I will say I used same cables on Cig and they have been fine. Rengade builds a good looking fish boat. Probably best suited in fresh water.

power coating rarely holds up long term.......looks great new and then the bubbling starts, then flaking and bare metal.

I watched a video of a boat review and the reviewer said most cases the PC is fine but once they drill holes in it for the accessories/wires etc then that breaks the surface and the breakdown starts.
