Default Need advice-potential purchase- century

Looking at a 2020 2301 century. Has anyone had experience with the newer models? Does the boat/brand have a good rep?

Get a survey for both the boat and engine. Spend the money up front to save it in potential repairs that aren't obvious.
Sorry, not familiar with the brand and model

I’m not sure I’d require a survey on a brand new boat (assuming it’s brand new and has a considerable warranty). I’m interested in this model as well, so following this closely.

you should definitely get a survey, do inspection, sea trial, etc on a brand new boat

most brand new boats have issues immediately apparent at delivery or become apparent in the first few uses

of course, if you know what you are doing and have the expertise, you may not have to hire a pro

They are good boats. I had a 2007 year Century and it was built like a tank (which I like). Heavy, solid and handled chop very well. Don't underpower it. If you're anywhere close to the production facility, take a tour and certainly go on a sea trial.
In my opinion they have a good reputation and they hold their value well.
