Looks like the 28 is a "big 28" and the 31 is a 31 if that makes sense.

310 SS Twin Mercruiser 6.2 MX MPI driving Bravo III’s will cruise at 37 MPH with a top speed of 52 MPH
The 330SS with 496 Mag's gets up to 55MPH but not in the cards.
So- who knows what on these things and where are the deals to be had on them?
I recently bought with a 260 SS with a single 496 Mag out here in Vegas so I could trailer it and it would be easier on fuel. Works well for Lake Mead and surrouding lakes, but I would always go for the bigger boat if it is practical for you.
At the Ft. Lauderdale show, I heard that the 26 and 28 would be replaced with a 27. For what it's worth. All you gotta' do is listen.
Delivered both a new 260 & 280SS last weekend, and the 280 is a VERY fun boat...T-350 Mag/MPI's is all the power that hull needs. It accelerates and handles great. The 310 is a new design and has a nicer transom/platform area. Got 'em in the showroom if you'd like to look.
Yep, new 270SS will be at the dealer meeting in July. The 310SS is a much nicer boat than the 280SS and rides as good as the 330 at LOTO. We have sold and delivered everyone we can get within a couple of days after arrival at our marina I would NOT spend the money on 6.2`s the 350 mags make the boat plenty quick for most people....
26 and 28 may both be short lived.....
When I was at the plant there weren't many 330's being built anymore - but there was a waiting line to start a 350. They were pumping the 260s out though.
Don't forget about the Passport Marine boats that are going have to be sold sometime. They had 4 dealerships in FL loaded with inventory and as soon as the banks sort out the mess there will be plenty of new or like new untitled boats that are 1 or 2 model years old.
Leftovers/ in a bad economy should = Huge Deals for the buyer
A 45 SS, WHOA!!
