Default 4600 SCB Hull Design

Looking at upgrading and general reviews are favourable for the 4600. I have seen one and love the room and general fit and finish. The only reservation I have is on hull design.

They list that the deadrise is 9 degrees...I am wondering if the rougher water performance will be any good? I have noticed that some good offshore boats such as Maritimo have a warped planing hull which is also very shall deadrise but a very fine entry...I guess they suggest nose down to slice through the waves...I wonder how good the Maxum would be if driven in the same manner?

welcome to the zoo....the 4600 rides nice up here in the pacnorwest....the main thing here is to get the trim tabs down and the bow will punch thru and the weight of the boat will do the rest.....the boat is awesome...If I had the money, I'd get the 4600 in a new york minute....

Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
