Monterey 322 ride

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'm looking at some 322s from the 04-06. my wife loves the layout, especially of the aft cabin.   However, I have some serious concerns with the 17 degree deadrise.  We boat on Lake Michigan, where the wave period is very short and I've always been a fan of the more aggressive deadrise for this reason.   Any thoughts, or experience in 3-5 ft seas?

 

thanks,

mark

The 322 has 18 degree deadrise at the transom, not 17 degrees. I have been on two 322's on Lake Michigan (where we boat) and the

322 is totally at home on the big lake. It takes the waves better than my friends' 320 sea Ray, and has a very smooth ride.

Some info and a link in this post.

Hey Mark. We chose this 322 as well for the layout and aft cabin for our kids. We boat on Lake Huron and have quite similar waters. The boat handles quite nicely in bigger water. We were caught in some big 5 to 7 footers heading north last summer and shy of having to slow things down she handled it just fine. Adam
