As for the Bayliner how's quality compared to say the other recommendations on the list? I'm not a huge fan of the overly hard angular look of it. But it does meet a lot of my needs.

I do like the looks of the Defevers.
If the NP has the layout and the features you want, I think they are hard to beat.

Have you had a chance to get it out into some moderate seas? How did it ride?

My choice as well.

We take or 4788 out in the open ocean of the Gulf of Alaska every time we leave port. The ride is the same as any other SD hull form. It does just fine.

The only way you will get a better ride woud be to buy a Full displacement boat that has either Paravanes or active fin stabilization.

Then you would be limited to displacement speeds though. Sometimes in really rough seas I honestly wish for stabilization. That said there are some real advantages of being able to cruise at 15 knots when time constraints make getting somewhere more important than a couple hundred dollars in fuel savings
