Don't know if this helps but I had a 26 IMP. Same hull only shorter. Boat was rather heavy but one of the best rough water boats I've been in. I was told by more than one person the hull was modeled after the Magnum.

The IMP Vipers seem popular at LOTO. Last one I looked at had sort of mediocre build quality.

Decent looks.

I looked at a 31 back in 1986. As Fred just stated, they are avg at best. wouldnt be in my list of top 5 offshore performance boats. There was a 31 for sale here, a couple years back. all white. It looked pretty nice and i think it was priced right for the boat. you know the old saying " you get what you pay for" look it over real good.

Very tough re-sale. "Bayliner" performance boat. Go after a name brand used boat (doesn't have to be expensive, but a common name, decent brand)

They really pushed that boat at LOTO in the late 80's and early to mid 90's. I believe they're built in Kansas. Not sure about the quality, but they sold for a decent price.
