I have the 232 open with Yamaha 250 xca. I got the dual simrad units and couldn't be happier. I studied and went to Atlantic City boat show, Baltimore boat show and Cleveland boat shows. Also went to a couple on water shows and did some test drives. Definitely test drive one before you throw more money on another brand. See if it's for you. I could not justify the money difference on some other brands. I will say I was down to the 237 cobia and the 242 robolo. Wife loved the interior of the cobia. Test drives convinced me of my decision. I won't badmouth another brand out here but I couldn't believe how wet some of these center consoles were on 2 to 3 foot chop in the south passage in western basin on Erie. And as far as a walk around goes, mine were gas chugging tubs compared to the sportsman. Lol
