The Vega is a good boat, but I prefer the styling of the Triton and the A30.
Between the Triton and the A30, I would go with the A30 if cost were not a concern. While similar, the extra 2 feet on the A30 makes it feel considerably larger than the Triton. It also has a better build quality, in my opinion, though they are not without issues: most notably wet core. One nice feature of the A30 is the fairly high profile gunwale/toerail. It really adds to a feeling of security when going forward.
I owned a Pearson Triton and they are very good boats, but you do need to keep an eye on the core. If the core is wet, it is a very doable project to recore it.
There is a fairly large price difference between the two boats, but both are affordable. You can afford a very nice A30 in your budget and a top of the line Triton with money to spare.
If the core is a huge issue to you, you can look for a west coast built Triton. They were built in Sausolito by Aeromarine and they have solid glass decks. They also have a slightly smaller rig, FG coamings, bolted ports, and some other differences. Personally, I prefer the East coast boats (core and all).
