 I knew someone who had 1 about 10 years ago and i thought it was a good rig. it was heavy but she went well in all sorts of conditions. The guy who had it only sold it to get something bigger as he had a couple of kids growing bigger and older so he needed more room. he loved it and said he would buy another hull like them for sure. i wouldn't turn my nose at them either

Yeah they are heavy boats but capable. 

I delivered one to Rotto years ago (yacht was racing over and I took the support boat) and we did a lap of the island for the fun of it. It was comfortable platform at rest and enough room to sleep a family.

I have also done a fishing trip on one and again it was comfortable solid and stable.

My only dislike is the 'furniture' and pretty finishings on the inside of the hull. The topsides are very thick with all the extra built in crap which takes up a lot of the internal space. Further to that, if you ever had water coming into your hull from somewhere, you would have no idea where because there are so many mouldings.

I prefer my boat to be simple and empty. Less crap = less weight = better economy.

Would i get one? Yes. Would i strip it out? Before i got home!

Yeah probably not.  Wellcraft are fairly high quality too. The company I worked for sold many and they’re a solid boat

Its a great boat, mine is a bit underpowered with only a 120 hp diesel pushing it. But overall a really good boat.
