Maybe I am wrong, but I think you would have to give the Hann away when resale came. They don't have the the name or reputation YF or Inv does in the fishing circles.

Invincible 42 would be my choice the 42 YF would be second. Love yellowfin a but I really love the fishing layout of the invincible.

I work very closely with HANN Powerboats and know the owner Russell Hann very well. If you are ever in the area and would like to stop by the shop to check out everything that is going on I would be more than happy to set that up for you. Russ' personal 50' is near completion and will be on the water very soon!

A friend of mine broke the transom on a 39 Top Fish, I was there for the tear down and was shocked to see how little structure those 4 300's were mounted to.
Wow that is strange. I mean I don't see many of those top fish around and I was wondering if there was a reason for it, I guess they just aren't as fishable as they market it.

Not as fast but if you want a nice cc to be comfortable offshore in I would go to Bonadeo.

I would pick the YF all day long for ride, fit n finish and especially customer service. Wylie was one of the coolest dudes I ever worked with. Kevin and Richard were great also. They all go out of their way to make the customer happy. If I won the lottery I would have a 42 quad 300 Verado YF in my back yard.
I have talked to plenty of people that have rode in the other boats mentioned and they chose the YF because of the softer ride.

Freeman 37 or 40, Nortech 392.. From your three Invincible for speed, YF for comfort/luxuries.

Why isn't the 37' thrown in for speed and comfort? Food for thought.

I was in your shoes last year went and tested the 42 invincible and 39 yellowfin and 392 Nortech. Nor-tech got my money..... Invincible would have been my second choice. But to be fair the 42 Yellowfin wasn't an option for me due to trailering and its fuel range...

They must all be great boats because everyone has a different answer. For me, 42 yellowfin all day. With 600 gallons that Is plenty fuel for a 400 mile trip. Wylie could add more if you needed I'm sure.. After seeing "unreel" the quad verado 42 yf at legendary marine in destin, I'm pretty much sold. The boat is an absolute animal and dwarfs everything else with its massive bow. It's size alone on the side of other big center consoles in amazing... It is the sickest looking cc I have ever seen. Makes my 36 look like a dinghy. I love the air conditioned sleeping area and shower in the console too. I'd use the hell out of that on overnighters. And like all yellowfins, the ride, fishability, and fit and finish are top notch as it gets. Can't go wrong with that inv, freeman, or nor tech either.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder - diesels or outboards look pretty nice to me!

Do yourself a favor and somehow work out a ride on the 37 Freeman!! If stuck on the 3 I would go YF.

fyi...I think JoeyM keeps his yellowfin 42 right down the street from you in Quonset Point. Might want to talk to him.

Every time I saw them lift that Hann at Jupiter Pointe like in the above pic I cringed waiting for it to take a nose dive. I know most of the weight is in the back but that just looks sketchy as hell with SO much length not supported!
