Looked at both side by side at the PB boatshow. Both look awesome. 30 seems like a lot more boat...maybe because the beam is 9'6" almost a foot wider than the 28. They're both fast as hell with twin f300

All we have ever owned...Boston Whalers and Contenders - we like to stick with what we know! 23t is sweet..a lot of boat for the size...must fly with 300 hp!

Sick Sled.. is that a factory top - looks more curvy than normal? very sharp.

Pretty sure that if I ever move up this would be my choice..

As noted above, I will confirm that on a standard V hull design of the Contender, around 28" separation on the bunks sounds about right. It looks close until you look at the boat on the lift and realize the keel will hit the cross member if the bunks are spread further apart.

But - I do like the lift bunk options noted for the stepped hulls that have been pointed out above.

Sweet boat, did you have that electronics box installed or did it come factory direct? I installed one on my older 27 open and its one of the best upgrades ever!
