I couldn't find a good enough deal on a 23 foot center console to keep me from going used. That big Yellowfin was totally sweet and Contender had a great deal on their 25 footer but it seemed like the show was a little smaller than 2 years ago. I was surprised to see food vendors on the exhibit floor.

Tried to look in the bilge of the 25t to take pics and the rear seat must be removed to access that hatch;? We tried to open it as did the sales guy. My wife said to me "I thought these were fishing boats that front seating would kill casting to fish if you put the cooler in front of the console." i honestly stood there as I never thought she noticed stuff like that. The rigging was immpecable as they are known for and the twin power looked just right for that hull. 106k though is alot of cake

was there as well on the same day, climbed on the YF and the 'Glades 29 & 35, as well as the Regulator 32'. Didn't bother with the Whalers or GW, prices are exorbitant. Would much rather have a 'Glades at those price points, fit and finish was out of this world on those boats.
Anybody see the Metan Marine 23' Seacraft in one of the back corners? Was absolutely stunning--talking to the guy and he said the only original part of the boat was the outer skin. Was Awlgripped maroon with teak all over the inside and a Yanmar 4-banger (I believe) jackshafted to a stern drive. He said it was set up as a yacht tender--and the price reflected that. Regardless it was a sweet, sweet boat.
The little 24' Seaway Pilot House was a sweet boat too--42.5 with a 115 Yami, not a bad new-boat deal IMO. Esp when GW was getting I think 65 for an 18' CC?
