Author Topic:   275 CONQUEST

I'm looking for a late model used 275 CONQUEST for light fishing and weekend boating. I sure would appreciate current owners giving your thoughts on how the boat works for weekending for two people? Is the cabin big enough? How does it handle it 3-4 foot chop? Is the rear cabin easily accessible for adults or is it better used for storage? Any other comments, good or bad are appreciated

gkb88, Well now we know what boat has those Optis on it. I have a 28/295 Conquest so with some knowledge, I'll respond. I do have a friend with a 275, but prefer a 295. He runs on the outside of Vancouver Island regularly and has no problem. Not every day of course, but with a 5,000 mile fetch, what can you expect? I think the mid-cabin berth is about the same as mine, which is a full bed size. We spend 2-1/2 to 3 months on the boat every year. and don't feel it's too small. If I were shopping, I would look at a 28. It's around 2200 to 2600 LBS heavier, carries 100 Gal more fuel, is available with a generator, and there is a wider choice of boats available. If you're trailering you need a permit for either boat, though you may have some restrictions on 10'7" that don't apply to less than 10'.
