Our last boat (owned between 1999 and 2000, our last one), was a '92 Chris Craft Crowne 232 Eurocruiser. What model did you have, because although ours was a '232' it felt more like at least 26 ft, maybe 28 loa. Although it had a 5.7ltr 260, it felt like trying to power an elephant with a trawling motor, after stepping up from a Dynasty 19ft cuddy 3.4ltr 135 merc.
9 years later we just finished our first season with our Maxum 1999 2400SCR and what a difference between the Chris Craft and Maxum, for a comparably sized boat with roughly similar power.
The Maxum handles so much more efficiently and out of the hole than the CC, all else being just about equal. You will undoubtedly be incredibly impressed come Springtime. Enjoy.
