I have been in both, in my opinion the Triton is a better made boat but the Nautic Star is a great inexpensive boat. Of course if you pay more you get more but there is a law of diminishing returns when it comes to all things. In other words that 13 piece of pizza at the buffet will not taste as good as the first. Just like the difference in a 75K and 60K boat is not noticeable to most. It's all about what you want and what you can afford and can justify spending on a boat. You may be able to spend the $$ to buy a yellow fin but is the extra 40K over and above the other boat you are looking at worth it? If you have W's money you probably would just by the yellowfin but if not you might think, heck for 45K total I can get a good 24 foot Nautic Star and it floats and gets me where I want to go, why spend the extra dollars. Or maybe you can justify parting with another 15K to move up the Triton. You can't really compare the two in my opinon, two different classes of boats.
Alot of boat buying is about prestige and ego. I know a ton of people that have bought the expensive ride...a ride they really couldn't afford and ended up taking a beating just to get rid of it. To me, a Yellowfin is no better than a Triton.....FOR ME. So, spending the extra money is not justified....whether I can afford it or not.

And, you are right, Chicken.....this is not a fair coNparison.
