should it fit in a 30' storage unit? I am thinking it will be close...

Anybody know or care to guess?

Doing the do diligence before I take the plunge and it appears anything over 30' is not that available around here.

It might with a short trailer tongue and no pulpit. I have long tongue and a pulpit (2320), measures 35' receiver tip to prop. I do know I would not want a tongue that short, tow vehicle tires would be in the water with a low incline ramp.

Thanks. 35 foot is longer then I had suspected.

The pulpit is sort of a non issue on the trailer since it can be over the tongue but very good point on the short tongue, 2wd truck here. A long tongue is very nice for those shallow ramps. I may have to see what I can find storage wise. Thanks again!

Great info thanks! It sounds like 35' is the way most 23's are sold.


Moving right along.... would a 25DV be much longer? Obviously the boat is 2' longer (and a foot wider) but I am wondering if the typical trailer is any longer then the one under a 23.


Basically what I am getting at is if a 23 cost me just as much to store as a 25 I am losing the advantage of the smaller boat.

Your right fish, I think the 23 Parker is likely plenty, especially since money will always be an OBJECT. As far as i can tell the 23 DVCC has as much or more room then most 25s I have looked at.

Problem is I have 4 kiddos, a wife, and grand parents. Not that all of us will be fishing off-shore but lake running I think it will be common to have all or most of us on board. I think I would be better off with two boats; a nice size pontoon and a 21 DVCC!

cockpit area is pretty close to the same between the 23 and 25 length wise its the beam that youll notice. Plus with the deep v the sides are higher. I had my 2530 parked next to my buddies 23 and it was quite a bit larger. Also, youll notice the cabin is a bit smaller with the 23. But you cant argue with a 23 that size that runs upper 40's with a single engine. I would go with the 23 unless you find a great deal on a 25 which is what happened to me.
