Why is a guy that doesn’t fish outside the jetties judging offshore boats? Are you riding contenders, see vee, and yellowfins in the icw? Chill out and keep taking your friends fishing catching redfish and calling them charters. And ps you might want to get a scale. Those 5 pound flounder and sheepshead are not 10-12 pounds. 😂😂😂😂 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡 Boatronnics vs kooklogics
Where’s all your kingfish and offshore pics from 30 years ago? Like talking to a brick wall. Nobody in the Jacksonville fishing community likes you. You have had conflicts with dozens of people but it’s their fault....A trend going on there you might want to look.... And nice 10 pound sheepshead....
I was undecided 3 years ago. Sea trialed Contender, Invincible, Yellowfin, Sea Hunter and Sea Vee. Went with Sea Vee, and am glad I did. I had a 320B built and have zero regrets. They truly will build you a custom boat. I had several things that I wanted done to the boat, and they were more than accommodating, where as some of the others wanted to build me a boat the way they wanted it......Especially Wiley.
I have a 2018 32st Contender and in my opinion its the best overall hull in the 32ft range of top tiered boats that's setup to fish. Its fast at 63-64mph with a pair of 300's and is very efficient hitting 40-41 mph loaded to fish on the way out at 1.7 mpg. As mentioned SeaVee and Yellowfin both make great boats that are finished little better with the SeaVee being the best finished of the 3. I don't like the stern layout on the 32 SeaVee personally with the big square livewell and no toe kick space and the 32 Yellowfin has a tiny cockpit and will also cost a good bit more than the Contender. Both boats are slower than the Contender thus burning more fuel. I think the 29 Yellowfin is an awesome boat and I haven't fished one but I know they are fast and look like they run well in the ocean. I saw a new one a few weeks ago with forward seating and the cockpit and space forward of the console make it look closer to a 26 and I would guess it would be tight with 4 guys fishing. My boat happens to be for sale as I am moving up. If you want to take a look at it or take it for a ride the boats lift kept in Jax so its easy to do. Corey Maire 904-318-9916

Appreciate everyone's input so far. I think I have narrowed it down to sea V, yellowfin and cape horn. I feel like Jupiter is going to be a little wet, pricey and maybe not as much a fishing setup
