Author Topic:   21' Conquest vs. 23' Conquest

I am considering buying either a used 21' Conquest or a 23' Conquest. Can someone please give me some advice on a how these two boats compare to each other. Is it worth the extra money to get the 23' boat or does the 21' boat have plenty of room for fishing 4 and handle rough water about as good as the 23'? I am looking at getting a '98 to '2001. I hope someone can help educate me on this. I have been inside of a 23' boat at the boat show recently, but as you know they quit making the 23' and 21' Conquest. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi -

If you want to really learn in depth about the Conquest 23 from someone who owns one, check out this earlier thread...

If you go to the Post-Classics part of the forum and set the pulldown menu on the top for "posts from the last 2 years", you will find plenty of info about both the Conquest 21 and 23...

Hope this helps,

I looked at both 21ft.and 23ft. Conquests before I purchased the 21 ft. model.The 23ft cabin seems to me to be exact size of 21ft. model.The big difference is in cockpit size much larger on 23.The 23 just seemed too large to trailer.Also I think the 23 performs best on twins,the 21 runs great on single engine.The 21ft. model size and ease of towing the boat swayed my decision to the 21ft. model.The boat is very seaworthy.

I was looking at these two exact boats just 2 months ago. You are right about the size of the cabin. Both are same size but not a factor for me since I only use the space for dry storage anyway. Decided to go the 23' because of the extra cockpit space. The 21's cockpit seemed cramped to fish with more than 2 people. The 23' will likely be more difficult to trailer but if I got the 21' I could see myself wanting the 23' after I got comfortable trailering her.

Here's another good thread about the boat.
