Re: Best used 27 footer

I've got the best 27' ever made...it's the boat that every manufacturer copies...and has the highest resale value if it's been well taken care of. It's a 74 27' Magnum Sport..in good condition...it does 70MPH +...is comfortable in the roughest seas...and it's for sale at nearly half the price of others, advertized in the OSO classifieds.

what are the best brands out there? for performance and resale value? any help is much appreciated!

Must not be much of a demand for Activator, Kryptonite, or Superboat because I cant recall ever seeing any of them up this way.
Im not an expert at all. The post says "best used 27 footer" I was replying to a quote that named Baja's and Checkmates. Everyone here is giving their own opinions. In my opinion, I would recommend one of the L.I. built 27 foot boat as being "best". I have nothing against bajas and checkmates, I've owned 2 checkmates in the past and had many great years with them.
