Michael, are you looking for new, since you still want it in current production?
I don't think AT will build a 28 twin.

Why twin? On a boat that little, a hot single engine would be far less hassle.

Less fuel flow for any given level of performance with a single too: remember that the more the boat weighs, the more fuel it burns.

On a big boat, sure you want twins, so they are both lightly loaded at cruising speed.

I can't believe that no one has suggested a 35 Fountain. Now that is a nice 30 foot boat!!!!!

I agree with everything you said. I am considering twins because it would be for ocean use (Pacific), and the thought of an engine/drive failure out there makes me a bit nervous.

BTW, I am looking at I/Os, and was looking for new, because I'm picky, and I'm on the West Coast, and most boats are on the East Coast (costs about $1500 a pop just to look).

Michael, btw a twin doesn't burn twice as much fuel as a single, and a heavier boat doesn't burn more, its just slower at any given rpm. It's HP that needs fuel.

A twin sbc will also be more fuel efficient, but also a bit slower, but lighter.

How fast you wanna go and how much you wanna spend are two critical points.
