Default let's see some deck space

I'm alway boat shopping and I'm looking for deck space on a boat. good old fashioned in unobstructed space. feel free to post pictures of any size boat but I'm mainly looking for 23-28ft walk around/express style boats. of course parker and stieger craft are boats high on my list. I looked at a 2860 prokat the other day and was kind of surprised at the room it had and wanted to see what else is out there

Here she is the day before it came home, much cleaner now. 1985 Pro-line 2300, its almost got enough deck space to lay a whole sheet of plywood, its a dream to fish from.

What’s not to like. 25’ with a 9 1/2’ by 8 1/2’ dance floor for a cockpit.

that's the ideal boat. you still didnt post a picture of the dance floor... lol my dad had the 25ft deep v single without the bracket. I didn't think it rode half as bad as people described and I've heard that about the ones without a bracket

I’ll try to grab a pic tomorrow; but, what more could you want. There is a rainbow over the pilothouse. Lol. Mine is also a deep V; however, twin 200s on a bracket. She moves along quit well when needed. As far as the ride, the helm is more forward and higher than most other boats. I’m learning how to read the water off the bow. I haven’t peed any blood yet; but, the ride is much smoother back by the transom. lol.

I am breakin balls I'm familiar with it I fished it many times you dont know you need a parker until you have fished off of it. his new boat is a 28ft true word while it doesn't have as much deck space it is 360* fishing you can drift with 6 guys and not get tangled. it rides alot better also and still gets as efficient or more efficient but I would like the much simpler design of a single engine parker for my self in this stage

No Parker Pic for you!!! in my best Soup Nazi voice. It really is a great boat. There are a few single engine 2520s for sale on the Classic Parker site. most are modified V though.

to be 100% honest I'm not picky. I missed out on 2 great deals this year both boats were around year 2000 and both needed repower. one was a 23 deep v and the other was a 25 modified. I drug my feet on the 23 because it was a hour and a half away and I was really busy and the 25 I never had a chance at. I emailed him saying I could come pick the boat up now and he never answered. I thought it was a scam then someone on this board posted the new parker they picked up and it was it

There’s big difference between the 21-23 Hull and the 25-28’ Hull. I really don’t like curtain separating the cabin and berth of the 21-23’. I like the door and walls of the 25-28’ cabin. Not to mention the 25-28’ is a foot wider. Also the 21-23’ has a pretty good step down into the cabin compared to 25-28’. Oh course just my $0.02: but, that was the thought process I used to get into the 2520XLD.

my cousin has a 31 eastern that I've fished off shore maybe 5-10 times I'm not sure. it's one of my least favorite boat I've ever been on. the lay out and room is great. it literally parts the sea in a head sea never slams just slices. but anything other then a head sea I feel like I'm in a washing machine. he says its somthing about soft Chines or somthing I dont know.

as far as the judge I hear good things but it's mainly from one or 2 guys who post over and over. I have a semi open mind about them and would look If one came up but there are not many used ones for sale and the few that I've seen for sale the pictures in the ad doesnt look like they weathered well. still the judge if ever popped up I would look at in person

the Eastern / JC 31 is a completely different hull than the 27 . the 31 is an old design one of the first glass lobster boats ever build. the 27 is a hard chine and a better riding boat especially on the drift
