What kind of ammenities do you need?
Sit down or stand up boat?

This will help narrow your search down.

We are just building the I/O version of this TUFF 28. It is planned to be a 525 or Ilmor 625. Were expecting just over 90 with the 525.

the sunsation is a great boat, but don't buy it at loto if you want a good deal and service, the dealer there is not great, Raymonds, they should be selling 3 times what they sell just dont promote the boats.

Mark has the first 28 tuff running twin 250( I think) merc egg beaters. Looks awsome and runs 90 plus. The workman ship is impecable and the layup process is second to none. It is "pin straight" and smooth. It is purely a sit down go fast with 0 ammenities on board. Sort of a modern day gentlemans racer if you will. I am looking forward to test driving the first i/o model when its built.

I love my Sunsation! Not the biggest out there, but seems like a nice comprimise from cabin space and performace. I run 70 all day long with an hp500efi. The newer hulls 05 an up, should be upper 70's with a 525. Wouldn't be surprised if it tops out at or above 80.

You can always call the company's owner's and speak with them any time during business hours. Very friendly people, and after market suport is SECOND TO NONE!

I have close to 300 hours on mine, and have no big issues.

My 2 cents.
