We had 27 OB for about a year and moved up to the 33. Love it. Perfect size. The build quality and performance has about ruined us for anything else.

Onslow Bay is in a class by themselves, plus Brad and Jessica are a pleasure to deal with as you well know. Best of Luck w it.

Nice. You’ll love those V8s. Has Onslow made the change to using Optimus EPS steering systems yet?

I think they are still using the Mercury steering as standard. You can get the Optimus if you would like. My new 33 is in their finish shop now and I am getting Optimus ESP with the joystick and sea station installed on her.

Onslow is probably the best looking boat being produced right now.

OP, I’d recommend the Optimus EPS base steering package, even if you opt out of the 360 Joystick and SeaStation. The joystick feature can always be purchased at a later date by either yourself or a future owner of the boat. It may make your boat a better purchase choice for someone looking at a similar boat that can’t make the upgrade without replacing the entire Mercury steering system. I’m always thinking about the future, because someone never knows when they may want to or absolutely have to sell the boat.
