Default Fastest NON STEP V Bottom Boats?

I was just wondering what the fastest NON Step V Bottom speeds were that you guys have heard of, owned or rode in???

Please provide brand name, can be early cigs, fountains, sutphens, apaches, velocity's, scarabs etc.... As well as brands that still do not have steps: sutphens, velocity, apache etc...

I am pretty impressed with the 41 Velocity.
Last week out at Lake Cumberland I put 5-6 hrs on the 41 and it rode like it was on rails. This is a full cabin boat, complete with stand up head and shower. After a little seat time, I had it running a solid 96.0 on GPS @ 5800. (staggered 800's Konrad Ace drives) I'm sure the 100 mph mark is no problem with the right set of props and more experience behind the wheel.
The Velocity had no bad manners at all. No chine walk, no porpoising, just a sweet ride. Nice design, very impressed.
