Default What to expect???

What kind of speed do you HP boat gurus think a 28' Pantera sport with a 720HP blower motor would get? The owner says 80mph but I think it would be more, right?

80 is about right for a full pleasure version, maybe a couple mph more. It also depends on which 28 you are talking about.

Which one are you looking at???????

I am looking at a '93 28' sport w/ an XZ drive. I don't want to give out to much for fear of being hijacked. I have seen it on here before. My guess was at least 85mph.....

Lots of info on it in the Pantera section if its the one I think it is. Everyone who has looked at it has passed and its been for sale for quite a while.

Sounds pretty close. This is our best light on fuel was an understatement. Running 650 +/- hp.
