a Cheetah runs 95 on 525EFI with Bravos,not a BS number, but experienced personally.

I do not know the AT but the Hustler is a great performing boat and built by the owner of the factory with proud.

For a 344 I would not choose a ASD, but always for a 388.

Actual leangth(not including platforms):
AT: 33'
Sunsation: 30'-30.5'
Hustler: 32-32.5"

SPeed with 525's:
AT: 92
Sunsation: 96-97
Hustler: 95

Cabin size:
I have been in the AT and Sunsation. I would guess they go 1, 2 in that order followed by the lower profile Hustler

I have no experience with the AT, but my buddy has a Cheetah. He loves the boat, it looks awesome in the water, and runs amazingly well with 500s. However, the one thing I have tended to notice is the boat is TIGHT. I'm 6'4" minded, but there is no where I can sit in the boat. Bolsters are very tight standing, and impossible sitting. Rear seat, forget it unless I'm in the center. While I know this isn't a determining factor for a lot, it was a little to cramped for me to get about and even manage.

If cabin size is important......A.T. and then Sunny, I have never been on the Hustler but just looking from the outside I would say there can't be much.
The A.T. also has very very deep freeboard.

AT easily the "biggest" of the 3. For a few MPH difference I'd lean that way.
