Default Mares cats?

I need all of the info you can tell me about the Mares 38. I know all about them buying sonic and where the molds came from. I don't know anything about the performance or function of the boat itself. What numbers does it run with stock power? What kind of ride is it? How is the quality of the hull?

Thanks in advance.

I have a pretty good feeling your MTI is well out of my price range. Beautiful boat though.

I remember when that one was for sale.

I can put you in touch with the owner if you like.

They run around 90 with stock power. Big cabin and cockpit

I know a guy in Indiana w/ a 98 Mares w/700's for sale. I've seen the boat in person and it looks good. The pics don't really do it justice. I'm sure the owner is ready to move on it, give him a call. Its in the OSO classified section.

I looked at that one. It is one kick a$$ ride but he is about $20000 out of my relm. I hate to beat someone up on such a beautiful ride like I've gotten beat up on mine. If he's ready to dump it let me know.

Duke, what kind of numbers does that boat run?


Thanks

Everyone keeps saying they're slow but 90 with stock power isn't that slow. If stock power is 90, what does the one in Indiana run w/ twin 700's?
