Nephew and I just got into an '08 32 Yellowfin with a pair of F350's....

Great boat, nice dry ride and we have seen 1.7 mpg at cruise, 4100 and 42 mph

5 pages...and no less than 6 other hull options will be given.

As to your question, the driest is the YF and Inv. Rides best depends on your taste and demands on a hull but I bet the YF is the best combo of speed and dry ride. Most efficient will be between the YF and Inv. Grady shouldnt even be mentioned in this thread as its a mono with no steps so it will be slower, less efficient and is way too heavy to compare to the other 2

I would definately run each boat. The Yellowfin is a great boat, but I would highly recomend sea-trailing it 1st. They tend to ride/run alittle different than most. But its fishability is excellent.

The INV is slightly faster but I think the YF gives up a little of its speed because for some reason it rides a little softer. They are both great boats, I would own either.

X2 on the Seafox!!!!!! Than you can take the money you save and buy more $5 per gallon gas!!!!

If you can afford a six figure boat with a 300+ gallon gas tank, do you really worry about fuel savings/cost?

I don't know what thumperlove's story is, but I can say that I discovered firsthand how fast a blowout due to the stepped hull can rock your world 180 degrees yesterday.

Needless to say the friend that I was letting drive at the time lost his driving privileges forever and I won't be attempting to recreate the occurrence ever again.
