Anyone with experience on/owning a Parker 21 or 23 SE?
I'm looking for some local feedback on owning a Parker SE, the modified V model, not the deep V.
My next boat will need to be able to fish the shallows of Cape Cod bay, hit Race Point and further out on nice days, and double as a family boat as needed. Boston Harbor on occasion, though won't be slipped here.
I was considering used Jones Brothers, but their narrower beam is less attractive and the Parker 21 SE caught my eye at the boat show. A lot of boat and makes the Jones seem overpriced to me. The 23 SE with 200hp certainly increases price, but I don't want 2-foot-itis and want a boat that will last a long, long time. The sharper bow of the 23 supposedly helps in a chop, despite still being a 14 degree hull.
I was hoping anyone local has experience on either boat, good or bad, or something similar that I may be over-looking. Can't wait to get back on the water, though may still be next season for me.
