'95 27' Grady White 272 Sailfish Sportbridge or '85 34' Wellcraft Coastal.

The Grady White is about 10,000 more then the Wellcraft. Can't seem to make a decision. I like the room on the Wellcraft but it has twin 454 engines and will drink gas like crazy runnin out to the gulf stream. The Grady White has twin 200HP Johnson Ocean Runners with 600hrs on 'em and it has a lot more electronics on it.

Any opinions?

Hello sharkbite,

When buying a boat there are many things you need to take into consideration. How will you be useing the boat? Do you have a wife, ifso will see be onboard alot? Will you use the boat for entertaining or just fishing?

I can go on and on. Both the boats you are looking at are nice boats. They just have diffrent needs they were built for. Only you can answer your questions my friend....Tightlines

The "boat" whatever i decide to get is going to be used for charter fishing for King mackerel. (14-40 miles out)

Grady

I have been on quite a few canyon runs on a 24' Grady out of IRI, those boats can handle some rough water..I especailly like that model you are looking ..I'm not a boat owner right now but have been on Gradys and Parkers enough to form an opinion..like the ideas of the twins..if I had a choice would go for Yamahas over Johnsons ..good luck to you..and conratulations in advance!:)

Thanks for the opinions :D Definately think i'm going to go with the Grady and had already thought about getting rid of the johnsons and going with the Yamaha 4stroke LF200TXRA 200hp

Will probably stick with the Johnsons for the first year, the Yamaha's new are 12,000 and i can't see spending money on a used motor and take a chance of having to rebuild or put more money into 'em a year or so later.
