Sunsations perform well in the rough - there are a few on the forum (ask Reckless32 - long time Sunsation owner and primary waterway is VA Beach) that swear by them. Of course, as with the Nordic, this is a stepped hull (1 step vs 2 in the Nordic). If you boat primarily in rough water, go with the AT as the straight bottom will keep you sorted and give you comparible speed...

Thanks for the info Heat. Bern resale is also a concern of mine as well.
If i can get a deal in another part of the country, it seems boats seem to go for more money in the NW part of the country. So it would be nice to come out even or even ahead after a couple of years of use.

I would say Audacity is priced fair. I never buy stuff that is priced fair though. I buy stuff that is priced to sell and stuff I know I will not get hurt on if I sell in a couple years or have to put some $$$ into it. I can see full engine rebuilds as a possibility in 2 years. Thats either 10k I would have to spend or $$$ off the resale.

Its a local boat. If its still for sale, its worth a look. I don't think that Mike will go that low, however

I don't know the Nordic or the A/T but I do know the Hustler and its seller. The boat is in great shape and super well maintained. It ran great in many of our poker runs.

I would go with the Nordic or Sunsation. The Hustler has new drives because a Bravo 1 can't handle the power of a 525.It needs Bravo XR drives.
