I am asking Dr. Todd if there is anything he likes about Seahunter. In his initial posts regarding Seahunter, he cannot say enough good things about Seahunter, from the boat itself, to the customer service, to the ownership. Now that he no longer owns one, he is not as complimentary. Wondering why the inconsistencies all of a sudden. As for my 35, I love it. But that is a very subjective point of view.

After seeing both, I'd take the Bahama 37 over the SeaHunter 37 any day. A lot more room on the Bahama 37.

I'd probably TAKE the Bahama 37 over the SeaHunter 37 if someone were to give it to me but if I had to spend the same amount of money I'd much rather have a SeaHunter 37, a new Ford F350 to tow it, a Yellowfin 24 bay boat and a few thousand gallons of gas to go along with it all.

I'm sure the Bahama is first class, and the Sea Hunter seems nice too, but concerned with resale value and quality as pricing seems to be a better value. You get what you pay for? I have a 31' Jupiter now and looking to upgrade. Thanks
I think Bahama is in a class of its own including the price tag.If you want to compare another boat with the Bahama i dont think the Sea Hunter should be included in the conversation.You probably should be lookin at Yellowfin,Sea Vee,Intrepid and maybe Contender.Dont get me wrong the Sea Hunter is a nice boat just not in the class of these others.I forgot about Invincible.All of these boats are badass i wish i were in your shoes.Nothin better than boat shoppin

All of these are personal opinions, but I do not agree with you in the least that SH is not in the same class as the other boats mentioned. Considering ride, fit, finish, construction, and customer service I would put SH up against any of those boats.

I agree. SH makes a top notch boat and the price can't be beat. Previous post makes SH sound like a cape horn.

I was thinking that it also looks a bit like the non-step hull Contender 33T in profile and the bow looks like a Jupiter or Venture. It is getting kinda hard to keep track of all of these big bad center consoles that folks are building down in South Florida.

Well if you want to compare i have jupiter and sea vee right next to me in Palm Beach Gardens and after comparing we can talk price and you will see why Sea Hunter Cant build enough boats to keep up with the demand.

I would have to disagree with Rod27's comments as a very satisfied customer.
The customer service has been nothing short of excellent by Ralph and team. I would put the ride of my 35 up against a YF 34, Pursuit 34, Sea Vee 34, all of which I sea trialed back to back to back in Miami through gov't cut on the same day before I selected the SH based on the ride. I believe the SH rides better than any of the other boats in the 34-35 foot range.
All of these are personal opinions and as my wife's grandmother used to say "every crow thinks theirs is the blackest".

You missed the 33T and the Invincible which like the YF is stepped, so the ride would be completly different from the deep V's!

What's different with the boarding ladder? Is it better than a side door? Also, I've noticed with the full top on some that the holes for rods are only on one side - why? - or was it just the lighting/picture.

I saw a Sea Hunter in Bimini and I didnt like the look. Had a "boxy" commercial appearance but thats just me.
