MANs are quite expensive to maintain, between the service requirements and parts. Be careful with older non-common rail engines, they don't have a wonderful reputation. CAT is understood to be less...

The fastest lobster boats on the water today are built right down. The only skeg boat I’d look at that can handle a sea and also move out is the MC 35’.

you will likely need to order a new build but it absolutely can be done. Just depends on how deep your pockets are. Head over to the Wesmac website and look at the 60s they are drawing up.

Atlantic did a 46' Duffy with twin 800hp MANs about 15 years ago that cruised 28. They cut the keel back, you have to on a DE if you want speed with twins. There's a 46' Wesmac down LI with twin QSMs...

I believe that is correct also. Dock talk is that the older 45's pre-Trocki were better boats, take that with a grain of salt or 100. Older ones came with Series 60s, not sure if Davis put C18s in...

Find a 50' Hatt with C18s. Should be able to get a good one for $500K. Next option would be 46'-50' Ocean with CATs if available. After that it gets iffy, IMO. Be careful with QSMs, have a...
