Do you happen to know the cruising speeds with the 300 vs twin 200?

Top speed is about the same with a single 300 and twin 200s actually. Both top out in the low-mid 40's

Best cruising speeds are 18kn (21mph) to 27kn (31mph) depending on sea state.

Best I have is from a passenger running the Chesapeake Bay in sustained 24kn winds with gusts 31kn and 3-4' chop at less than 2.5-3 seconds according to a weather buoy (not THT numbers) running about 18+kn. with 6 on board and everyone stays dry

Saw a Judge 27 with dual Suzuki 175's this past week at Sunset Marina in OC. Was very impressed with the boat overall. Very curious on ride for ocean use. I don't do a lot of ocean fishing due to logistics but purchased a home in OC last year and hopefully now be able to do more. I currently have a Dusky 278 that I use to fish offshore. Have never been further than the hotdog but the boat has always done well. I like the enclosed pilothouse for comfort reasons over the open CC style as I get older. Certainly understand that with a 27' boat you need to pick and choose the right days to go offshore but even so the weatherman is not always right. Is it also possible to get outriggers on this boat as well?

Outriggers are shown on the first boat shown in this thread. You can get a bunch of different ones installed. Usually Bill installs Taco unless a client requests something else.

I run my boat offshore usually in the winter after the Chesapeake season closes, and my father used to run his older Judge 27 offshore of NJ as well. The hull does well in big water as long as you keep the hull in the water. If you run too fast launching much of the hull out of the water, it will pound like most any boat. Key is to let the boat run level and let the sharp entry do the work. I typically run 18kn-22kn offshore (I can run 25kn (28mph) on flat days, which is the fastest I cruise with a single 225 and full load). If you are looking to launch the a boat out of the back side of swells running hot, a deep V is for you. The advantages to this style hull is that they are great stable platforms to fish from, economical to run, and run well at modest speeds in the slop. When it gets really sloppy and deep v's are bogging around bow high, this style hull still runs relatively level on plane at slower speeds.

A fellow THT'er took this photo of me offshore of Ocean City Maryland last December with whales around me on December 26, 2017. Photo was the afternoon when it laid down but it was 2.46'-4.10' while blowing 15-17kn sustained in the morning and we still made around 22kn (25mph) with tabbing the bow down looking for fish. https://www.wunderground.com/MAR/buo.../26/44009.html

Very nice boat I’m very interested in. Curious if there are any fishing the Atlantic in Florida offshore and how they are for that? I have no problem running slow to keep the boat in the water if it plows well. Just curious how they’ll handle offshore down south. Seems like the perfect boat for me if it fits that need well. I know this isn’t the typical style for Florida but it seems like a great boat. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I have fished from the Keys to NJ. Waters are similar and the boat performs well. When it gets very snotty, the boat runs on plane at slower speeds.

I am surprised that this style boat isnt more popular in FLA quite frankly. Given the sun protection, the ease of putting a spotting tower on the top, and shallow inshore draft but big water capabilities, I would think it would be a winner.

Does it really only draft 10" ?

I immediately thought that has to be a typo but then I seen the pic of it on the trailer.

I have not measured myself but local fishing guide Pete Dahlberg (WalleyePete.com) fishes his Judge 27 Chesapeake on the Susquehanna Flats in the spring and in the skinny water around the islands in Southern Maryland in the summer and early fall. He originally had power poles on his boat but now has a Minn Kota trolling motor. He tells me he floats the boat in less than 18" of water, and I assume that is with a full party fishing. In this region We need boats that can fish the skinny water as well as big open waters of the Chesapeake Bay and off the coast of Maryland.

Here is my boat motoring over some shallow water (less than 2')

That was actually my next question. Anyone ever run a jack plate on a bracket? My bay boat will float in 12" of water and I routinely get it stuck. I can't afford 2 boats right now nor do I have the need. However like most ppl I do find myself wanting "just a lil more"

What's the size of the gas tanks/fuel capacity? Do you make a 30-32' Judge? What would fuel capacity be on the bigger boat and what engine combo? Does the bigger boat have a generator & a/c?

Judge makes a 32' Chesapeake based off of the 36 Chesapeake. It can be had with generator and a/c. Just takes money. Fuel capacity can be added but standard on the 32 & 36 is 250 gal.

You can also get the 27 Chesapeake with a generator and a/c in the XL model: http://www.judgeyachts.com/chesapeake-27-xl.html
