Welcome are you after a diesel or petrol?I think the se models are the newer versions with a differant trim and layout,in saying that i have a 1999 2800scr which was re badged a 2900se in 2002 it is the same boat and layout but differant materials used inside,(its for sale by the way at york marina) If you go on the maxum site and have a look at the catalogues then google the other models you are trying to compare against,
good luck

I can speak somewhat authoritatively with respect to the 2700 SCR vs. SE because, when I bought my 2003 2700 SCR, I noticed that some 2003's were SE's, which led me to research the subject.

Maxum switched the 2700's designation from SCR to SE in early-mid 2003. They are the same boat with the exception of the dash board and interior fabrics. The SCR had a tan and woodgrain dash and tan vinyl seating in the cabin, whereas the the SE had a gray and metallic looking dash and gray fabric seating in the cabin.

Other than those two things I belive the SE and SCR were exactly the same.

At some point, I think around 2007, Maxum totally redesigned the 2700 SE. It is now a completely different boat, and much smaller due to an 8'6 beam.

Thanks for that looking at SE & SCR's online you can see the difference in the dash and fabrics, the SE i was after has gone so of to see a 2003 SCR on Friday so fingers crossed, thanks again

First off hello to everyone after a long winter. I own an 03 2700SCR and my cousin owns an 06 2700SE. We have compared them side by side and they are they same boat. The difference is in the fabrics, color scheme and of course price. I think my 03 looks better because of the vinyl interior and color scheme. The only complaint I have with the boat is that the aft bed door could be much bigger. Other than that I love this boat.

Good luck
