Hope you had your Moccasin there side by side to compare ride in the same conditions. Yes larger boats more storage and bigger outboards.Equals bigger trailer dual axle with brakes, consumes more fuel to run and tow, drafts more, costs more upfront and too insure.If the pot has no limits then by all means go for it! But for the price size and cost to operate you'll not find a better boat to do it all then what you have already!
I spent a little bit of time on the Billfish 24 and the only thing that concerned me was that you really need the leaning post live well. If there was a better used market I may have ended up in one but we ended up with a year-old 24 Yellowfin CE instead, which has exceeded all of my expectations. If you don’t want raised deck space up front and back, these boats aren’t for you.

If you like Egret/Frank's quality and customer service, you'll be happiest with Young Boats/Robb. I had a 24 built by Robb and loved that boat. Never should of sold it. Phil also makes a valid point as well, depending on your use, you might be better off getting another 210 for down here. Just a thought.
Wow, that Jupiter Bay 25 is a special kinda of boat. I really like that.
I guess that's one to add to the list for me then when I have the finances.

Eh.... I'm hoping to win lotto. LOL
Given that I'm in the middle of completely designing and customising fittings for an Egret 189, I am over the top when it comes to boats and design.
