I’ve owned two boats; a ‘94 SeaRay 200 select, and my current ‘08 210 select Fission. Both with 350 engine. So, all I know is I/O bowrider. I’m looking to trade up to a 23-25’ model. We will be buying used, probably 2012-2014 model years. We live lake front in Virginia. My wife and I are both now semi-retired, affording us more time year round to enjoy boating. During the summer months we entertain a lot of tubing & wake boarding family members, we also spend a fair amount of time just cruising. The just cruising time is why we would like a bit larger boat... mostly for a smoother ride. I don’t know anything about outboard motors, except they don’t require winterizing... allowing us to cruise around on a pretty January day! I also don’t know anything about sundeck hulls, but I see more of these on the water than bow riders. So, what configurations should we be considering? Any input is greatly appreciated!
