Default Looking for 30' motion with 300's

Looking for a 30' motion with 300's. The earlier style pleasure cockpit not the poker run seating. I've looked closely at Boattrader, powerboatlistings, classifieds here, and scream and fly. Just wondering if anything else is out there?

Would lean more towards a 28 Skater. If you have a certain budget, i would than go with Spectre. Just my opinion.

Budget would keep me out of a 28 skater. Can you elaborate on the Spectre? I began looking at those but am more interested in the Motion because of the wider tunnel and overall width. Thanks

Lots of Motion's had delamination issues. Also Spectre in my opinion has a much better laminiation scheduled and much better finish. Speed wise there just about the same. My opinion.

I didn't know about the delamination issues. I really like the size of the cockpit in the 30' Motion.

Motions delam problems are pretty well known. They seem like a big cat in the water. A Friend picked up a Spectre used a couple of years back.Check the rigging. The rigging was terrible and heard of a second Spectre with rigging issues also.As Skatermike stated I think the Spectre is better built. I am interested also in moving up to a 28 or 30 Captiva also. Keep us posted on what you buy and how you like it.

Will do! .. Been dragging anchors around for the last 8 years in the 311, it's time for some speed now.

I would like to more about the delamination problems, I am running a 2009 Motion XP with twin 300xs motors, that I am considering selling. It is down in Havasu right now as I am having some upgrades and rigging work down. I am working to make it a little faster boat.

What's the story on Triple Shoot Motion 30 for sale on Boat Trader? Does any one have any details about it's history. It has a pair of 300X motors on it now. Thanks

I owned a 2001 30 Motion for about 5 years and never had any delamination issues. The fit and finish wasn't by any means perfect, but I did not have any issues with the build of the boat. To the contrary, I thought it was pretty well built and a solid ride. It definitely rode like a bigger boat.
