Thumbs up

well this weekend I was in a 33 AT for the 1st time at A POKERRUN as a passenger .we were running through snot all day up here in RI ,MASS area and that boat was PISS AH COOL. I MEAN it just ate up the wash cut through everything. and STEVE did not even use his K PLANES I WAS SHOCKED ,every otherboat in its size that I was in we always used the tabs in rough chop wake crap it was was a mess going to every stop. THE BOAT HAS A LOT OF ROOM, NICE CABIN, LOTS of FREEBOARD and with the 525s screamed. We cruised at 60 at around 3500 to 3700rpms at 4000 we were running in the 70s, a couple of times went up to 80 . the boat handled the 80s like it was on flat water, not the 3 to 4 ft junk water we were running in. I think runs in the 90s which I am sure the boat does with the 32 B1 props handles sweet. we got some air here and there and it flys level. I want a joker 28 for my next boat but boy a 28 AT MIGHT be nice to. art

Steve's boat is one of the most attractive ATs ever built, and it runs like a rocket on rails at 92mph. So does the 33AVH Demo boat that is ready for a loving home.

If you can, Go ck out the 33 demo and have Pat take you out for a ride. You won't want anything else.

ok guys- i gotta ask....WHY not go baja? hehe, when you throw it out there ya gotta give a reason. I'm looking at a 33 or 36 outlaw currently and gettin outta my 25. I run with alot of different boats everyweekend from baja's, nor-techs, powerquests, active thunders, formulas, fountains, and a bunch of others...and sure, i'm not the BIGGEST boat, the fastest boat, the flashiest, and def NOT the most expensive, but in all honesty i feel my boat is fine and the guys i run with don't ever seem to judge me or make coments about me (at least to my face! lol) So i wanna know...is baja REALLY that bad of a boat? Should i really listen to everything i hear about them and not even consider buying a newer one??? I'm all ears here guys so please help me out. I'f i'm making a huge mistake, i'd like to know before i buy!

I would say this, it's not that Baja is a bad boat it's just that for the same money you will spend on a Baja you could get a better quality built boat.
