I was hoping you can share some inforfmation on these two boats. 28' Grady Sailfish vs. 28' Scout Abaco. Both 2002. What do you think? Thanks.

For myself anyway, if both are in similar condition, Grady White every time! Of course, it all depends upon the price of each.

I think I'd factor in what kind of power is on each as well...you're talking about nearly 7 year old motors, so total hours, 4-stroke vs. 2 then I would compare the ride of each.

Lots of other variables to consider.

We have a 2002 Grady, with over 1100 hours under power..

The Scout is a Sweet Sweet Ride... But I think the Grady has more fishing room. So it depends on what you are looking for... You really cant go wrong with either choice.

Both are nice higher end boats. I would consider hours, up keep, and which had the most of what I was looking for and go from there. Good luck

Nice Boats-Both

There is a lot more to consider than just brand. If they were comparable I would choose the Grady.

But like Glenn, Persistenc 2 said what brand are the engines, how much horsepower, 2 or 4 strokes & hours on engines, proof & frequency of services, then you could have serious money differences in electronics. Always make sure your deal is subject to a mechanical check out, formal survey & water test-all to your satisfaction and by persons that you pick.
