Default Your second boat would be? What would you within reason.....

First to admit I like odd things. Own an Axopar cabin boat and likely upgrading to their new 37 cabin boat for summer 2020. Love a 55-60mph boat with a pilot house protection for the north east....

That said, always loved the Chesapeake bay style boat. If I was to have a second boat (maybe a refit) would love a boat just like this....(minus the lifted targa arch) with some paddle board racks on the roof, some high end electronics from night vision, big screens, lighting, monster stereo.... loaded up with some water toys (carrying a few sea bobs, electric foil.... ) Lay out in the deck plush for large crew on board to relax, bar set up, grilling set up, outside wash down and more. Less the fisherman here ..... just love the classic style and elegance of these lines.

What would you get? Post pics......

this, my Axopar 37.... ok getting greedy but one 28 open CC maybe as well. Ok 3 boats and I am happy. Not to much to ask....

Already have a second boat. Most recent purchase a Formula 400ss, other current boat is a 21ft SeaHunt CC...........boat before that was (sold) a 38ft, 100mph cigarette boat.


So yeah, I tend to bounce around to different boat types!

Newport, that’s a gorgeous boat. I’ve got 2 boats also, and like them both.

HaHa I am at 5 currently not including sail boats and kayaks and canoes. Total cost about what your anchor and dockage costs.

Love my small Whalers. Use the 16 and 18 more than the "big boat" 22.

Your pictured one reminds me of a bay built Evans, Chrisfield if I am not mistaken.

Have two; first a 23' Seacraft with 250hp Verado, second is an 18' Tracker Grizzly with 60hp tiller. Love both boats, but the jon boat gets more play time.

A single outboard cat in the 20ft range with a GPS trolling motor. Perfect for getting around bridges and structure like that!

I have a GW 307 now. Would like to get 15.6 Boston Whaler with a 70 hp from the late 70’s early 80’s for my 13 year old son.

A 23/24 cat with an offshore cap, rated for 300 HP and with a fuel tank bigger than a Yugo.

A legit 3 pc 25' hybrid with no stupid casting decks.

The seafoam green 32 Fountain my wife didn"t like

Well, that depends on whether the boat to the left is the first boat or the third boat.

Newport- I am a 2 boat guy. 29' World Cat and a 17' Key West redfish skiff. WC used for ocean fishing/cruising and cocktail cruising for larger groups. KW usually by myself sneaking around back bay w trolling motor. I am a fan of the Axopar and I drove a 37 cabin and loved the ride. Layout just didn't work for me. I also love the Chesapeake deadrise boats and have fished them a fair amount on charters. Question is do you need 2 37 or so foot boats- wouldn't their uses be pretty much the same? Let us know your thought process because I do agree it would be really cool to have a 37 Axopar plus a good size deadrise.

BTW- when I looked at the Axopar, I also was thinking about the Judge 36 w outboards. I have been on a few and they are nice, fast and look great. So there is a deadrise option for you. Maybe not a pure deadrise, since I think the hull is a little different and good for offshore. But looks like a deadrise.

A go fast bow rider or a really nice zodiac with a 90 on back of it. While I love having the 37 footer, I miss the day of running at 55mph burning 15 gallons an hour. Now I run at 20mph and burn about 22gph.

I currently own a 32 foot contender, I just recently sold my 16 ft Carolina skiff that kept me happy for 15 years on my inshore needs. If I'm putting together a dream package a boats, 60' sportfish, 32' to 38' center console, and a 18' poling skiff.
