Default Thoughts on three boats?

I currently have a 22’ 2005 Sea Pro CC and run out of OC MD. The boat has been good but a touch small in the ocean. looking at a new 257 Grady White cc, 261 cc Cobia and 277 Cobia. A little concerned about the Grady being a touch to small 24’9” and 135 gal fuel capacity. All three are relatively the same price. Been a fan of GW’s for a long time but I certainly recognize the quality and thought that goes into today’s Cobia.

I think the new Cobias are really nice. I'm partial to three piece hills but seriously considered the Cobias when purchasing my last boat. There are a couple at my club and are going on a few years now and seem to hold up very well.

These threads always come down to the same thing. Save some money and by a great 2 piece boat like the new Cobias, which I own, or spend more money on a 3 piece boat that also has a loyal following for very good reasons. Do the big name 3 piece boats hold up better when pounded in big waves over the long term? I think the answer is yes. With that being said are you going to be spending a lot of time running 50 + miles offshore? If not I would save the cash. The Cobia 277 will give you the option to run far offshore occasionally and you and the family will appreciate the creature comforts and fit and finish that the Cobia offers you during your daily boating at a fraction of the price. Have fun looking
