Pursuit 2600, Grady-White Journey 258 and the Hydra Sports 2650 are three that come to mind..

I think the Grady 257 is a center console but Grady White is a great place to start. I always liked their walk around. Look at the Sailfish model.

I own a 2006 2600 Century WA. Ride & build is pretty decent. Has insulated fish boxes with macerate-tors & nice size live well. Bait & sink station, fresh & saltwater wash down, tackle storage. Fishes 4 with comfort. Stove, fridge & head, sleeps 2. Yamaha built Century but gave it up a year ago or so when the economy tanked.. If you can find a later model say 2005 on you might want to check it out. I'm happy with mine.

ive researched this alot! seems either a regulator express 26 or a glacier bay 27 or a world cat 27 are among the best riding in that size for real offshore conditions.

Completely agreed. I fished a Grady 33 in some not so nice conditions and the boat was a disaster... The four ppl that we're on board are the same guys that fish with us on my regulator and they could not believe that difference. That said I still believe that Grady makes a great boat and and awesome family boat. The fit and finish are wonderful and overall design is great.
