Default Bullet vs. 33 Powerplay Pros and Cons

A while back I started a thread comparing the 35 Cafe to the 33 Powerplay. Is that a closer comparison than to a 31 Bullet? What is everyone's take on Bullets to a 33 Powerplay? What can you get in the $60000 +/- range? Cabin size, cockpit size, freeboard, price, rough water ability, speed with equal power, etc.? Thanks.

Both boats are very nice,but the powerplay has a better ride. I have been in both. The 2 Bullets I have been in seemed to porpoise without tab input. The powerplays have all been rock steady in all conditions, which is why I own one.

Never ridden in a 33 PP(although I've never heard a bad thing about them), but I know a little bit about the Bullets They are nice rides!!

ps-Whoever was driving the 2 Bullets that you rode in were running too much trim...mine doesn't porpoise at all

My vote is for the 33' Powerplay all the way. That's why I bought one also.
