I'm also looking at a CC most likely for my next boat. Seems to me, as with any other boat purchase, it comes down to what's really important for you. For me, the ride is more important than the stability for fishing. I'll probably fish off of whatever I buy on occasion, but not often. 90% of the time it will be used for cruising, bar-hopping, maybe some watertoy towing, etc.
For that, I'd rather a CC with more of the performance boat characteristics, I.E., deadrise, narrower beam.
I'm limited to around 25', give or take, so I've been eyeing the smaller Concepts, as well as the new Spectre 24 CC. I definitely want a rear seat, and I also like the idea of some seating up front. Many of the true fishing CC's don't have these.

I forgot to add to my post...if I had the room and funds, a 33 Cafe open would be the only boat on my list. Maybe that will be my next, next boat.

Yeah Mike, I know that, but since even a used one is out of my budget, it's a moot point.

Jeff:

We chose Triton for our Marina. The others you list are not in the same class as Intrepid, Triton, and Concept.

If you'd like, give me a call and I'd be happy to go over the reasons.

Take a look at the pursuits. They are set up for fishing and have a nice layout for crusing. Not sure about thier perfomance but they are one hell of a solid boat.

Also I have on seen a few contenders at a boat show and from the looks of it I would never buy one. I hate to be negative but these were and new boats and they had stress cracks all over them. I could't believe they would bring boats like that to a show.

Just my .02

And its probably worth even less.

The 35 Marlago is a pretty nice ride as well. With the rear seat out, there is alot of room back there.

A friend of mine has a 25 Contender that we fish the heck out of off the coast of Cape Cod and the Martha's Vineyard. Snotty water most of the time, and it runs fast and flat. Another cc that I was very impressed with was the new Century. The company is actually owned by Yamaha and has an unbeilevable waranty. Worth taking a look at in My opinion.
