Hi all,after lot of weeks spent on pc in search for perfect de boat came to conclusion that this 2 boats are the best, general marine 26 and seaworthy 25 bhm ,or maybe there are other better in 25/26 ft range ?! AM thinking of "pulling the big trigger " to buy 1 of this boat,and would be first DE in this part of world .so my question will be ,can u tell me from yours expirience how do u compere this 2 boats and for how much can u buy or build them ? Any info is very appreciated . I like DE boats a lot and think they are n1 boats but for import 1 from usa is very expensive,boat price+ shipping(which can easily be 40 k) + on top of everything tax of 40 %.....

If your looking at new construction I like the SISU 26' or now called the Lowell 26. If used I'd go with a General Marine 26' because there are 3-4 good ones available right now.

That's a nice boat, I wouldn't be scared of the 315 yanmar fuel numbers. Probably the most efficient package you find (I'll bet close to 3mpg at 16knts).
