Spent some time on the boat pictured . Seems well put together and practical for short hops.
The rig of the boat has made it very stern heavy - something that I am sure the centre console boat wont suffer from .
Going to put some lifting fins on the OB shortly. Max speed with the 40 is about 30knts - very close performance wise to my boat ( 4m with a 50 & fins).
Does seem to be a much drier ride than my Avon - but this maybe due to the Mattesqe bow high trim at the moment.
Need to get a cushion made for the bow seat as I kept sliding off on the way to Yarmouth on sat .
Usual boring video here ( with family pics for the owners;
