From what I understand the 36 Warrior shown above was one of the very few 36 Warriors with steps that were made. There were others built with steps in different places that did not work as well.
As per BS, and the current owner, the boat does about 83mph. This I believe is the same speed a Top Gun T/S does with the same HP500 power.
Also keep in mind this boat was a generator, and an A/C unit.
A 36 Warrior set up the same way without steps will do about 72-73 MPH.
A 38 Gun non step with 500's does in the 71-73 MPH range.
I would contact Bobby before buying any Apache he hs built or worked on. He always has been more than happy to help.
