Default Best CC ride 30-36'

Just curious on your thoughts... What brand 30-36' CC has the "best" ride? Easiest on the body, fuel efficient, etc....

Definitely not contender in my opinion. If you want to simply go fast and take a beating, perhaps contender. Something with a stepped hull and Carolina flair - Yellowfin, Sea Hunter, Palmetto, etc. newer cape horns aren't bad either.

I used to own a 33 Palmetto and it had a fine ride. Not as fast as contender for sure. If I had to donut again, it would likely be a Yellowfin. We stepped up to a 35 twin diesel for the creature comforts.

How much $$ do you have? Easiest on the body, hands down: Grady White, Pursuit, Intrepid, SeeVee. Fast, sexy and a bit better fuel consumption, Yellowfin and Everglades.

IMHO, these are also all solid quality boats, ie, will be there year after year, and everthing internal whether is construction, wiring, components, etc, are top notch.

Lots of others out there that hang multiple engines off the transom on a narrow hull, toss some fancy electronics on board, underwater lights and suddenly they pretend to be a great boat. I have fished, cruised or sea trialed many brands, as well as owning a few lemons that I still don't know why I was crazy enough to buy them.

to tell you the truth, if you have a bad back and knees i would not recommend contender. Contenders are meant to be driven fast which leads to getting tossed around a little. (and this is coming from a contender owner) Don't get me wrong contender is a nice riding boat does handle rough waters pretty well but its meant to be driven fast.
for a nice riding CC cant beat a Freeman. Had a chance to fish the Freeman 40 and man can you talk about magic carpet ride!

Freeman all the way. Cannot get a better ride in my opinion but you will not go as fast as the boats mentioned above.

From everything I've heard, this is the way to go. And I wouldn't piss on an Everglades if it was on fire.
