I have a 98 280 with big power and love it. Yes you have to learn to drive it like any other 28' boat that runs in the mid 90's.

I ran the crap out of my 26" Thoroughbred way back when - I loved it.

Great boats but they are boats that have to be driven not just point and go,I have owned several and still own one.You will hear some people say bad things but they can say them about any boat because they all at one time have had issues.I have seen brand new Skaters,Fountains,Cigerette,MTI as well as many others with Delamination problems as well as other issues.I will say this if you pick up the phone and call Steve Stepp he will help you in any way that he can and I personally have experienced that.So I guess if you want a good boat that is alot of fun but is a boat that you have to drive,Velocity is a great option.

I have a 2005 260 with a 575 in it and I love it. Like others said it takes a little bit to learn how to drive it and keep it on the pad, but once you get it down it's an awesome ride. I'm amazed at how it runs in the rough water
