ocean pro 6 or 6.3m

which would be best with tha the humber ocean pro 6m with 2.6m beam is the same price as an ocean pro 6.3m with 2.34m beam. which would be best? obviously the wider more stability, and extra length better ride, but the best would be to have the both, but with cost limitations, which is best to go for, width or length?

In the dimensions you have do you have the hull size in lengh the difference may be less than .3 metre because of tube diameter and overhang at transome.Although the.3 extra beam does sound much in practice can make the difference on say being able to have side by side jockey seats with good foot room

dimensions

dimensions of the 6 metre: internal length=4.7 internal width=1.5
external length=6.0 external width=2.6m
tube diameter=.53

dimensions of 6.3 metre: internal length= 5.1 internal width=1.35
external length=6.3 external width=2.34m
tube diameter=.48

both are category'b' but to get a wider boat longer than the 6m with 2.6m beam i would have to go for the 6.5m ocean pro, a thousand punds more, and ive squeezed what i can pay as it is, lol

Depends on what you want it for, exactly.

I guess that for fishing and diving, the wider hull would be better, but for general sea-keeping and cruising, then a longer hull wins every time.

Or.........you could contact Dave Mallet at Wavelength training. He's a Humber 'test pilot' and uses two ocean pros for training
