I was just about to start a new thread asking the exact same thing, but I new somebody would probobly beat me to it.

I have never seen or heard of this boat/company.

Good looking boat and at a good price. Looks like a cross between a 28 pantera and a cigarette, my two favorite boats - like a match made in heavin. At that price I am extremely curious. Do they have website? That boat makes a single engine look tiny.

Its a very nice boat,,, I know the people and have ran the boat ,,, I dont want to make representations that I am not sure of ,,, However ,,,, It runs around 80 with fuel and 3-4 people,,,, the boat is large for a 28' ,,, very much like the pantera,, it has a strong look like a Apache 36,,, It was built to handle rough Lake Erie waters and does a fine job ,,,, If your looking for Old School Classic Offshore ,,, this boat is great !!!! and with the fuel injected 600,, it just sips fuel

yep . . .i'm with RHC. it is a very nice boat i've seen it several times. I spoke to the owner/builder at one of the pokerruns and i believe he told me that it is an original hull lofted by him. build quality is very good and the boat handles ruff stuff well. dash and fairing are a bit flat and "dated" for me but that is split'n hairs it is still a very nice piece.

Nope ,,, not on your best day!!! I watched the build of this boat ,,,, it was one man's dream ,, and he and his partner did a fine job ,,,,, all molds are new and they reside in Fairport Harbor , Ohio ,,,, hand built with love and perfection!!
