The Best Battery for the Buck

If a person likes "getting away from it all" what battery or batteries 6 or 12v would be the best to purchase for our Sunseeker 3010DS, thanks

I use two Interstate 6VDC deep cycle batteries. Seem to be okay.

I know back when I had my boat, the Optima batteries were the best going for deep cycle. With my TT, the dealer included an Interstate DC.

My Optima car battery is good and not too expensive. The Optima deep Cycle battery is WAY expensive.

Deka or Trojan make some good deep cycles. With Deka make sure they are labeled DC (deep cycle) and DP (Dual purpose); might be true for Trojan too,.

As for Optima...the blue top (marine) is labeled as a dual purpose battery so probably not a true deep cycle. I have a yellow and that is not a true deep cycle, but they make great batteries.
