You guys need to check out the Tuff 28, it is probably the best built boat on this list.
It also has a TRUE 28'6" hull, no steps and still is a 90mph boat. The lamination in the sides of this hull is greater than most bottoms.
As a pure performance boat, this cannot be beat. Creature comforts are not what it is about, just pure performance, wave crushing and comfortable seats. Not to mention the sexist lines on the market.

Take a look, it is worth it!

Mostly "classic" lines, the hull/transom mainly but also can be construed to be the cabin/interior etc.

New school is just plain swoopier everywhere, sometimes with windshields and sometimes without. some look good, some look like a bad hairpiece

No offense to the Tuff guys- have you considered rebranding? The name/spelling sounds like a $60 chinese kids bike at Wal-Mart. Nice boat, name's not worthy IMHO

Here's ours

Beautiful paint. Sweet boat. What is she powered with, and how fast does she go?

The Tuff 21 is pretty much a challenger .. Curious where the 28 got its roots ? It looks Phantomesque
Nice looking boat
