    I am looking for a sitdown style boat.... As for the comparison, the activator and the superboat are pretty similar, except the price. The superboat is a ridiculous bargain for what you get. I personally like the styling of it much more than the activator...just a sleeker looking boat. The activator is rigged very nicely but in my mind is not worth the near $150k it takes to get one. The SB ran 75 with a 496HO and whippled would do about 83....for a fraction of the cost. So in my mind the Superboat wins. You can get one for cheaper, spend a bit extra making it nicer on the inside, and still have enough to buy yourself a new towing vehicle---my situation.

    We are still looking to get a ride in a 27 Zr donzi, and a progression 29 or 27, but the Superboat is on the top of my list. Had a ride in the 24 Progression last year---awesome boat.

    Activator was real fast. The orange one below was a 101mph boat, we went 96....solid ride, nicely appointed on the inside, but way to much $$$. The blue on shows the high deck that made it not as appealing to me vs. the SB.

    Sorry my pics are too big to put up yet...gotta figure out how to shrink them. But i took a ride in the orange Activator on OSO somewhere, and John Cohen's white/yellow SB.
