I can only tell you to look at that one thread under sunsation about that one that disintegrated...the so-called witnesses say it was only in 3-4 footers

They seem to have high build quality. How ever a 32 Innovator rolled on Fox River in IL and was destroyed and see above mentioned thread. They are a small 32.

I owned a 28 Sunsation it was fantastic. as for customer service that was even better. If I was back on the market for a speed boat I would ONLY buy a Sunsation

Let me think what boat company hasn't had a boat flip or roll ? And what boat company doesn't have unsatisfied customers.

If you have question about Sunsation call the Factory they will speak to you. Try that with some,( notice how I said some) of the other boat builders.

Are you looking new or used ? What size?

Customer service is a 25 on a scale of 1-10!
Build quality is excellent
The new 32 SS is killer and the 32 Dominator is excellent.

The damaged boat stories are user error, the 32 innovator that rolled was doing a high speed turn in like 3 ft of water and the guy passing the tug boat may have landed on the side of the boat separating the deck and hull. Anyone can do stupid things no matter what the product, look at the Enzo Ferrari that split last month in California. You couldn't say that car fell apart in a traffic crash without knowing that he was going 160 MPH and hit a power pole!

Call Sunsation and speak to the owners and like Cap71 said try that with a few other boat brands. Sunsation has been around since 1982 and I would definitely buy another.

I owned a 2001 32' with twin 502's, loved the boat great quality. Never had any problems but when I had questions the factory was great. I would buy another, the only complaint I had was the small cockpit area and no seperate head. I think they have one now. Good Luck
