Assault or Destroyer?

Simple question which would be a better rough weather boat, a 5m Destroyer or a 5.9m Assault. Both cost roughly the same and take similar sized engines.

The boat wouldn't be used for diving, fishing or load carrying etc just having fun in rough weather.

Thanks

Phill

Forgot to say about the Ocean Pro 5.3m with a 2m beam as well?

Having had both there is really no contest. Check through Destroyer/Assault threads and you can reread ALL the arguments for and against each of them.

I've read the threads but I didn't know if the extra 0.9m made the Assault better?

5m Destroyer Every Time!

Assaults Over 5m are rubbish.

Come down if you want to try both side by side.

Sorry, think you made a mistake and added the bits "Over 5m" by mistake to the above......

I love my 5m Assault, however the 5.7 I had didnt stay the correct way up for long.

Funny that no one suggest he takes the Ocean Pro 5.3m. Why is that ?
