Default boat weight

i recently purchased a 1991 2500 scr i was surprised to hear that this boat only weighed about 4500 lbs. it seems like a low number considering the size and the way she handles. i'm coming out of a 23 cuddy that weighed as much, but didnt handle wakes and chop as good. any feed back on this??

more like about 5500 lbs....and the shape of the hull is plus mass is what gives the boat it's handling qualities..

I think that 4,450Lbs is a dry weight. I think when you add fuel, water, oil, and gear you will be much closer to 5,500lbs. As Seapuppy stated, the softness or hardness of the ride is impacted by weight and hull shape. In particular the deepness of the vee and the degree of deadrise at the transom. Maxum's are actually a nice handling boat due to the degree of deadrise at the transom. I've had quite a few boating friends make comment of how well the boat handles chop.

Swampy, having been aboard your boat a few weeks ago and comparing the layouts, early 1990's vs. late 1990's, I noticed yours to be much more open thoughout the cabin (a much more roomy feel), whereas it seemed like mine is more 'compartmentalized' and if so, with more bulkheads and such, maybe would account for the few hundred extra lbs. Mine weighs in at 5000 lbs.
