The 21 Contender can really cut through the water but it is a small boat. You will rattle your teeth out of your head in some slop. I haven't been in the Sea Craft. But I would go with more boat if I was making the call.

Buddy had a 21 contender, I have the sea craft..imo the seacraft handles the water like a larger boat and the contender semed very light..Both nice boats..Personally i think the fit and finish of the seacraft seem to be getting worse, but i like the ride better..
Good luck in whatever you decide

An Old Salt quote "Nothing beats feet". The more boat under your feet the better. I wish the company I bought my boat from made a 24 or 25' version then it would be absolutely perfect.

The 23 SeaCraft has a lot of weight below the water line,its a much bigger boat than a 21 contender. fished on a few 23s,,properly equipped they can run the canyons....A friend of mine has a 20-21 contender but its a bit under powerd ,,,my SeaCraft 20 /w 150 carb rude cuts short wind blown 1-3 chop very well .better than his 21 contender but mine is a bit wetter ..
most of my experance is with the older SeaCrafts..

In my opinion you can't go wrong with a refurbished and properly rigged Potter built 23 CC Seacraft, I have fished on the newer 23 Seacrafts and they just don't compare to the old ones in terms of ride, plus as mentioned earlier, their fit and finish can be very sub par. If your considering a 21 Contender then a refurbished/updated 23 Potter with newer power should fit in your budget. I would also look at a Kencraft Challenger of similar size, and you can never go wrong with taking a look at a 23 Regulator as well, outstanding boats.
