I have only been on one 28 Sleek craft and it was slow, but it only had a 454mpi (single) However with a 525sc I will guess 68mph?? But I really don't know, I don't think SC is know for pushing speed.

There was sold here out of Utah recently. It is solid yellow with 525SC and belonged to Jason Kidd of the New Jersey Nets (prior to it's Utah adventure)
The boat ran about 68 here at 5000 feet so 73-75 would be the expected speed.
Could this be the same one?

I would think the boat would run mid 70's

58 MPH
28' Enforcer w/ 330hp 7.4 fully loaded

Now has a 475hp powerplant.

My hull was manufactured in 1991 and has since had new stringers and a floor installed, (since the previous owner left the plug in for the entire winter prior to returning to New York for the winter.) It's pretty much an inland water boat with off-shore characteristics, it does crush the wakes nicely, although I have no plans of taking it out to sea and jumping it.
