Brig f-360 or Grand s370

Hello
I'm thinking of buying one of these two boats: brig F360 or grand S370.
The price is the same.
I would choose max engine.
But can not decide which .....
Is there some inputs
Perhaps a proposal on an entirely different model

if you are thinking of the latest model then they can take quite hefty engine. I think the one I saw advertised had a 40hp on the back! Great little boats by the looks of it. Search them on youtube, they have a few turtorials on there showing them off! Bit posh ain' they

I just fitted out a new Grand Goldenline deluxe 380.

Very happy with it, I went with a 40hp 2 Stroke and obtain 35 knots with 2 adults and 3 kids (7 to 13 years) in flat water. With just myself and 1 kid I managed to get 40.5 knots yesterday and the boat felt very stable.

I managed to get the dealer to swap consoles with a larger one, which while fiddly to fit to the boat has allowed me more seating and space for all the gadgets.

I posted a build thread here;

New Member / New RIB Fit-out

Best of luck.

Thanks for the reply.
Grand has a HSH system. Does it make more speed?
sincerely,

Would not really know. I did try a Quicksilver of similar size with a 4 stroke 40 and found it was hard to get out of the hole onto the plane, did not feel as fast at WOT but it did not have a working GPS or speedo.

Overall I'm very happy with the RIB, build quality seems okay too but I guess time will tell.
