in the end it's your choice

Sorry, I don't know much about the Extreme but I've had the oppertunity to visit the Superboat plant twice this year. That 30 Y2K has got to be the best buy in the performance boat market.

How can you beat a 75 mph boat made with new technology for under 60K????

The Extreme will be faster. The SuperBoat will be a little more comfortable. Depending on how they are rigged, I would bet with that kind of HP the Extreme is going to be a handful. The canopied boats can run mid 90s with a lot less HP, and it would be heavier. They are not a point and click type boat it will take a fair amount of driver (throttle & trim) input to keep it flying straight.
It's a matter of what you're looking for. From flat out going fast, and from a quality standpoint you can't beat the Extreme. For a little my comfort I'd say SuperBoat. I think a Y2K with 650 HP and a box can run about 100.

I just bought a Y2K and am very impressed. The cockpit has more room than my old 31 Sonic. Superboat is bare bones. Nothing fancy, no padding all over the place, no creature comforts. If you buy new you can have it built anyway you want, no power, no interior. Customize as you want and still get a great boat at a great price. I don't have much seat time, but it handles very well and solid. It does lean to one side, but I noticed with a 5 blade prop spinning left it will level out when you increase power. It will definately take more than 650 hp to reach 100 mph. The best thing to do is ride in both with equal power.

I agree with what everyone has said for the most part. For a 29' boat the Extreme is small and will ride smaller than the Y2K. But if it's only about being the fastest then the Extreme will do. I personaly want almost the fastest and alot more boat. As for construction I don't know the Extreme but the Superboat is stronger than all the west coast rigs I'm familar with. Maybe Lavey is equal, they bag $$ thier 2750 as an option. Don't put down money until you look at both.
