Wicked Won is nice but broke all the time and the owner had enough frustations...got out of Hi-Perf boats after that one.

The big Formula go-fast is the 419. They still have the molds and will build on special request ($$$$$$).

Next year, the 43 Active Thunder will be on the water.

Personally, I really like the Formula 400SS and the Donzi 39ZSC.

Black Thunders are the biggest fast boat out there. And probably the fastest big boat also. Here's ours goes 78 with 2 540's and Bravos and another one at Lotto Shoutout went 117 with a pair of 1250 hp engines.

Are you asking about the quality of a 41 Saber? NK

Mr Dietz did sell WW and the new owner was rocking it out in 4-6 foot waves this weekend on Lake Michigan without anyone to run with. The boat has run great all summer. Mr Dietz had a few problems with the sterlings but he had more problems with some of the people who run in poker runs and that is why he sold WW. BTW The motors are 1200hp on race gas and it has run 109. Hardly a care free boating package but simply awesome when it blows on the big lake. LEOPAJM's has 1075 mercs and has run very close to the same. NK
