New Hulls

I'm getting my financing together to buy a new hull for my power
i'v looked at Joker power boats , and Preditor
any other boat builders that sell 24-27 foot new hulls ready for power , or blank hull ?
i know i cant be the only one who has had a good engine/drive/gimble combo that also wanted a new hull to drop it in

there are some small boat builders that will sell hull only packages.. if you can talk them into it... ask them not to seal the deck to the hull.. makes it alot easier to rig the boat.. but some of the builders won't sell the boat un-rigged because they have a name sake to keep in mind.. some of them have done it in the past and didn't like the way the new owner rigged the boat and then didn't want there name on th eboat.. so some won't do it.. but i'm not saying this is the problem here at all.. it's just have been burned in the past.. so they think..

good luck with your project.. hope you nad your famliy have many years of good boating with it

I bought my 29' Kryptonite new minus motor and drive. The boat came completely rigged otherwise with all the hardware and elecric installed. I had my motor and drive installed By Typhoon Performance from my retired Donzi.

You will save money doing this, however two things to remember:
No waranty on the driveline and anything not installed by the manufacturer.
Resale of a smaller / less known builder will be tough.

I love my Kryptonite and it is an awesome boat, now I am trying to move up in size and it is a tough sell.

I would be willing to sell my boat minus power if you would be interested.

Velocity will sell a finished 280 model (26' 8" actual length) without engine/stern drive.

Joker has a new 28 in the mold, Iam sure can be ready for you in a few days.

Activator would be a Killer boat and can handle a lot of power.
