Default best 35-40 center console for island hopping

I'm looking to upgrade from my current 32' CC. Moved from NJ to FL and want to do some island hopping and overnights.
-needs to "sleep" two
-like the openness of CC or Dual console
-Outboard
All suggestions welcome

35 Contender SC or 36 Contender Fisharound. 33 Grady or Pursuit express. Dont think you will sleep two in the islands comfortably in a cc without genny and ample space.

If fishing is low on your priority list look at MTI pursuit makes some good models. Budget and all intended purposes will help

appreciate all the replies
My budget is under 400K, looking used no older than 2015.
Yes gen and AC are a must have. Current boat is used for fishing 10% of the time 90% cruising

Best of both worlds. Basically an express with a center console. Very comfortable to cruise, nice sized cabin and enough space to entertain friends. Can be used for fishing also.

for your use, as noted in your quote, why a cc when you will get better accommodations and more comfort in an express style boat- I fish and recently went from express to cc and prefer the cc for my use.

I'm with you
world cat 320EC would fit the bill, will be a lot bigger than a 32' monohull
