Swift has replaced their Saranac 14.6 with the Saranac 15. Both models were made for larger folks; after all, Bill Swift is not a small person. The hull is not flat on the bottom, but rather elliptical, a David Yost design. I have the Saranac Classic (14 feet, same hull design), and I do not find it unstable at all.

You may be able to find a left-over or used 14.6 at a discounted price.

Edit: You don't say where you're located, but if you're anywhere close to Old Forge, NY, I noticed that Mountainman has a used 14.6 in their inventory for a decent pice. You can demo on-site.
