Are you looking for a open bow? If so you might want to look at the Sunsation 32' SS a little closer, the SS open bow version might not be to far out. I haven't seen a AT, but I see Sunsations every day and must say it's some of the best quality boats I've seen. As far as speed "hold on" the 32 SS with twin Merc 525's 80 gallons of gas and seven guys will reach speeds of 92mph GPS.....

The Dominator and Innovator are sweet boats. I have been on/in/around both of them. The SS is new and RADICAL. I really like what Sunsation has to offer, but have not had any experience in the 32SS from Sunsation to base comparison. You must compare the 32SS to a 32/33AT. They are both DEEP V's with enclosed heads, tall cabin, lots of amenities, and etc. There are the closest to apples to apples. The Innovator and Dominator are a narrower beam, and shallower cockpits. Both can actually perform VERY well with a single 750+ HP engine. You know my vote already (AT), but make an educated decision.
I've been in all 3. The SS is the same hull as the Innovator with a deck similar to the dominator, and cockpit layout similar to the dominator. The SS hull and innovator hull is much more deep than the old dominator. And it is a faster hull. There were 5 of us in an SS with 496HOs, full tank of gas at the rally and we ran in the low to mid 80s. Runs very well in the rough stuff.
