Default Jupiter 41 SB vs. Seavee 430 Express

Can anyone help me and give me some help choosing a used Jupiter 41 Sport Bridge or a used Seavee 430 express? I would like to know your thoughts about the differences if you have any experience with either boat. Thank you

I haven’t been on either one. But I have a friend who owns a Jupiter 41 who absolutely loves the boat. Says fit/finish/ride are second to none and he’s owned several boats. SeaVee seems to have only made a handful of express boats whereas Jupiter has a bit more experience with them- not sure how much that matters- just offering up some info.

Good to know. It’s a hard choice. Only about 16 430 Seavee ever made.

My brother and I went through this decision several years ago and we ultimately chose the Jupiter. Excellent boat. We were very satisfied.

That Jupiter with a tower is CLEAN in my opinion.

Default Easy choice

Jupiter 41 all day long. Don't overthink this.

What kind of fuel mileage does the jupiter get? I fished on one this past weekend with trip f350s and was wondering if there was a big difference with different engine set ups. It is a super comfortable boat. Great for trolling and live bait fishing. Bottom fishing would get a little cramped but its a sacrifice you have to make to be able to sleep 6 comfortably and have a full galley, enclosed helm with ac etc. No experience on the SeaVee

.70 miles per gal across the board once your on a plane. I usually cruise 4400 to 4600 RPM, 33 to 35 mph burning 47 to 50 GPH, trip Yamaha 350"s

Both are beautiful, well built boats. However, because of the excessive weight of the CV it only gets .30 mpg at cruise. That is why only a handful of those were built. They should've installed a pair of diesels in that boat.

inaccurate. Cruise is .7-.8 depending on load on the SeaVee. I was on one all weekend and can confirm it

I would go with a Jupiter 41 SB. The Sea Vee is a much bigger beefy machine, almost too much so.

Id try and find a clean Jupiter 41 SB with the quad 300's. They are not easy to find at all, not many made.

looks like they’re both pretty comparable then from an economy perspective. As a qualifier, the one I was on has the trip yammy 350s. Can’t speak to the quad Mercs fuel burn but I thought they were also pretty comparable.
