OP needs to water test them in the same conditions.
Depending where you are located a good dealer can get you lined up with their demo, or a local customer boat.
I water tested my YFs, Moradas several times for potential customers and happily would do the same with my 256 Coastal in S LA. Good luck.

Is the Avenger 26 nearly as good a boat as either of these? Pretty boats just not sure of the quality. The boat built by Carolina Composites

I demoed the boat when it came out and liked it, but the bow is to close to the water and my fear was taking a lot of water over the bow when it gets rough out.

for sure I could definitely see that concern. What did you end up settling with?

I just picked up a Blackjack 256 Bay. I am really impressed with dry ride. 45 degrees and greater against a strong wind will still get a little spray every now and then, but its better than any bay boat I've ever been on. I had a 28' contender and it took way more spray than the blackjack in similar conditions. 1' or less I like to run around 4500 rpm getting about 41-42 mph, trim just to level boat. 2' I had to trim way down and slow to about 30 mph for a comfortable ride. It's very solid coming off waves.

That’s awesome! Thank you for the opinion. I love the looks of these boats. I need to run down to the dealer and take one for a spin. Everyone talks very highly of the ride of these boats.
