Their new product is meant more for fishing and is 37' long with a 10'6" beam. Wider beam for less roll during slow speed work.
As noted elsewhere on this board, Midnight also now owns the Powerplay 33' and 38' molds. I've never owned a Powerplay, so I don't know their beams. Good luck with your shopping!

Powerplay is how you say, thin like knife.

For a wide beem crusher there is only one word MAGNUM!!!!!

No offense at all !.....I'm always up for learning new things. I dont know much about them at all. It is a Bad azz boat tho !
Early 90s I think ?....BIG power & SSM Vs

Any Magnum over 28' fits the bill.

Clay - what are you doing in that pic - trying to hide your wood??

As far as a boat - the 38 donzi is good, but they also made a 33 ZX.
9'2" Beam (pretty sure). I've been drooling over them since about '98 - nice cabin amenities also. They also posted good speed numbers - stock, low 80's. The Daytona version had (has??) stand-off boxes, and boasted 90's.

Honestly, never rode in one - but, a very nice boat.

If you look closely, you will see my hands on the backs of the outside girls.
The hand you are talking about belongs to the girl on the right.

LOA - 30 feet (or longer)

Beam - 9 to 11 feet

Thanks!


Ummm, a cat.
