Used Cobra 850 vs used Scorpion 850 ???

Have tried a cobra last week at 4 to 5 BF, and was not satisfied with her sea handling. I am looking towards Scorpions right now, and I was curious about your opinion about this matter.

Except sea worthiness and build quality, I need two sun decks (eg. Cobra meditteranean layout is excelent for my needs)....

What;s your opinion ?

Thanks

Nick

Have you looked at Revengers? Very popular in Greece and fantastic boats.

Scorpions are also built in greece (RIBCO) www.scorpion.gr. Same hulls as the UK boats but with the Mediterranean layout you desire. Not the cheapest boats around but probably the best IMHO.

Everyone says that Scorpions are at least one level up from the rest of the RIBs in its class... Untill I do my first sea trial, I believe what I hear.... Still as you say not the cheapest boats around, but probably the best.

You could phone Cougar Powerboats...They can custom build most things..
