Default Custom Express - 30-34 with outboards?

Looking for a unicorn...but does anyone have any recommendations to check out for a custom express in the 30-34 ft range with outboards - either cabin or walk around? The only 'cc' we might might consider is the grady canyon 33

I know of everything available already from the main stream builders (pursuit, grady, BW, everglades, etc etc).

Must have outboards, don't want a cuddy. Wondering if in the hundreds of searches I've done, I've missed something...

Depending upon the budget. You can talk to Bill Judge about a 34 Express with twin 350 Zukes!

Boat has already been designed. However the buyer went with a 36 Chesapeake outboard instead.

Hello, check out the Jarrett Bay 34 semi production, looks gorgeous, also looks like they offer pretty much whatever you want as befits a custom builder, might be worth a look, the other company that springs to mind is Intrepid. Hope this helps. Hope this helps.

Check out the Outer Banks Boatworks for sale in Scituate. It's the boat that really motivated me to build what I want. I ran in to the owner on Nantucket a few years ago and he had just got in from Atlantis on a day that it blew 15-20. Knowing I could never have made the trip in my Pursuit I asked him how the ride home was and he said 28kts without much drama. It's really a 33' boat.

I looked closely at the Seakeeper boat before moving forward with my build and decided that the sacrifices made to fit the Seakeeper made it not the right boat for me. Not enough fish storage or fuel.

There’s one of these near me on Long Island. Beautiful boat. Think they build a 32 also.

How is that thing under 100k? Replacement has to be over 300. Did it depreciate that much in two years?

I looked hard at the boat and almost pulled the trigger. It just needs some finishing touches. The cabin is storage only currently. A few other details needed finishing. I barely have time to get out there and fish. Someone will get a lot of boat for small money.

Not sure what your budget is. Donnie Caison has a nice one for sale.

Thanks Guys. I've talked with Ryan at GlobalOne about the 32OBX .If the numbers worked I'd do another rebuild thread with Jersey Cape on that one which could be fun.

The 34' Jarrett Bay would be interesting if we found one lightly used

We're not unfortunately in a position to invest in one of the amazing carolina builders building us something brand new

Boat on anglers edge is very tempting based on the price, but the cockpit space looks so tight due to the cabin midship...kylesdad, do you have any additional pictures from that one you could PM me?

The shearline's are nice, wish there was one to check out between the newest 14' on the market and the older 03'

Default This one has my vote. But I am downsized where I want to be now.

It is probably the best riding of all the choices with that V all the way to the Stern. You need that on an Outboard Boat. Why? Because it will sometimes clear a wave and you will feel it otherwise. , The Walk around gives it so much more fish a ability . I would always choose walk around over a larger cockpit no walk around !!! The price makes it so appealing . And the 350 Verados are the most fuel efficient offering they ever built.

I didn't tak any photos when I looked at it, but I didn't fine the cockpit to be too small. The helm seating wasn't ideal for me. I did go for a sea trial and was impressed with the ride.

The owner of the boat built it. I think he said Huckins did the paint, a place on the east coast did the bracket and power. I think the fact that the boat wasn't built at one known place is the reason it wasn't scooped up immediately. I certainly planned to have a survey done if I had decided to purchase.
