Here is a proven winner (hull), that Will Smith hopes to have run near 100mph with twin 300XS outboards (hopefully), for just over 100K, on the trailer, dialed in.
2011 30' Phantom outboard version;
or go the IO route pictured below.

My identical maybe better drive teague platinum held up 52 hours of ocean running behind an ilmor 710 before getting nasty looking magnet shavings- a 6 blade prop would likely shred the drive way earlier than that.
There doesnt seem to be a way for one to get off - on the boat from the water.
It has no swimstep or molding in the transom.
Swimming is a big part of what we do on the hot dessert lakes here in the West and boats with no provision to get in or out of the water are a pain, and boats with protruding "stuff" and non-closable cleats all over them guarantee someone gets cut or bruised getting in and out.
Im really interested in what each manufacturer can pack into a 28 or 30ft boat for say 150-200K- for the whole package.
What kind of interior amenities, nav systems, stereo, screens, engine package & drive do you get for about 150K 175K- who gives you the most?

hey for that much money SUTPHEN or SABER will build you one hell of a boat. sut 31 or 28saber. a friend has a 31 or 32 sutphen custom built with 900 hp doing mid 90s and will run with the 35s and 38s in 5 to 6 footers been there in the boat when the opa race in cape cod was canceled in about 05. we dropped in 10 miles away and drove 65 to 75 gps in 30 plus winds 5 plus seas three sutphens a 82 30 blown big blocks a 05 31 with 800hp and a 34 with big power. the CG called off the races cause of waves and wind the 02 race that Iwas in was a lot rougher there but CG rules. anyway there boats are big same with saber its a big hull. there not lake boats. for a 120,000 you should be well set up with a big single or twin small blocks full cabin. I have seen 2 of the 05 sutphens and both wetre near that price. going 85 and 90.
The new Hustler 29' Rockit seems pretty bad ass for $175k w a 525. 85+ mph and a true standup boat.
Your OSO connection to great S. Florida Real Estate.
175K sounds pretty heavy for a 525 boat.
85 - even 90 have been done on 28ft 525 boats but with what kind of amenities and interior?
was that 85 filled with gas and people? (doubt it)
I cant seem to find any real measurements - hustler says its got the biggest cockpit in its class, but whats the cockpit depth?
Whats molded in and what an interior piece added on?
How are you Art? Good to hear from you!
