bar crusher, stessl platetrix , formosa and tabs


Recommended Posts

Hi , im just after some advise im looking at replacing my boat with something newer around the 2009 model and was looking for a cuddy or center cab around the 5.5 mark and was considering these brands. I have found a couple of stessl coat runners and seahawks and wanted to know if they are any good and what the build quality is like comparing the other boats that i mentioned below..

Pretty broad question, I'm not a huge fan of them myself but from what Ive seen the Bar crusher would be in front for build quality and ride comfort.Use to love the formosa but since comparing them to similar cost boats they don't deliver on ride quality or options. Wasn't that era of stessl a pressed hull, if so no comparison to a platey. Budget will dictate what boat you float away with. Are you looking for hull only or hull and engine?
