Anyone know how these single engine cats performed? Looks like a good power option. Never heard how they ran but the 29 has been for sale several times. The green one with the gray alcantara looks great.

The F29 ran VERY well, I know that first handed. I met the second owner at the Regatta last year and ran side by side with him and I can tell you I was surprised by how hard that boat accelerates up to 100/110. Top end I believe it ran over 140..

Impressive numbers. I saw it at OCM year before last and wondered how it performed. The 31 with the single looks great. With 1100 twins would be better....

The single engine F29's run very well. Accelerate well, get on plane quick and run a decent top speed. I feel it is still better suited as a twin engine boat and I have heard that from others that have operated both.
