My father owns a grampian
30, and I can say that the 30 is definitely not designed for offshore
. It has a huge cockpit
with poor drainage and is a very stiff boat, huge windows, and is pretty stiff (which will be comfortable but not kindly if you're to get capsized -- it means you'll recover more slowly). The boat pounds a helluva lot when going into a heavy sea, and when running in a heavy sea tends to squat a lot so the stern digs into the water
The 34 is obviously a different boat, so take this with a grain of salt
. Just my thoughts on things to look at when looking at the 34.
