This year I drove one of these (910 model wich was a 29 footer) twin stock 502's and MAN! WAS i IMPRESSED!!! 80-82 mph!!! There was a flat pad underneath it, almost I'd say 5 foot in front of windshield wich sure helped to get on plane but even more to go that fast!

I don't know for the model you are looking at but they seem to be fast boats!

Good luck!

never looked at the 910 only the 700i. I started looking at a Profile 304 . the dealer said they would take me to the plant so i could see my boat being built which is cool because i only live 160 miles away. he also said he would give me the rock star treetment what ever that means. the retail price seems to compare with formulas price on a 27 foot. and were talking a 30 foot!

Rob, what boat are you looking at?
The 700i is a 7 metre boat, it is 23'9" at the centreline, and 26'2" overall with the extended swim platform. A 30 foot Campion would probably be the 900i.
Good luck.

Cool

i was looking at a 700i or 900i campion and a 30 foot profile all three boats seem terific but the layout of the 700i is better for seating butt i want the boat to handle heavy chop or what ever i encounter and the 700 won't. i don't want to limit myself i can only afford to buy new once in my life time. i looked at trading in my four winns liberator on a use h.p but know one wants to give me more than $7000.00 for my boat and they don't even take time to look at it.

Not trying to bash any manufacturer, but do a search on profile boats here and see some of the feedback that comes up.

$70-80k can get you a nice piece of equipment. Run through all of the classifieds and analyze the market on anything between a bayliner(not offending) and an Outerlimits. It will show oyu what you may be missing for 80k. Also a lot of dealers would love to take a $7-10k trade on an 80 to 100k boat. Who wouldnt in the middle of august? There are lots of options without taking a hit on a new boat. You may qualify for more boat than you may know. You never know untill you look a little deeper as someone on here might have already mentioned. my 2cents.

thanks guys I have decided to keep looking in the used market too what makes it hard is all the boats in this area seem to be brokerage boats offering no trade. I guess im in no hurry i got a nice boat and i can still trade in the off season. If someone runs across a trade partial or full let me know. in the meantime i will countinue shopping---weeee!

Rob...............I have a 2003 800i with a 496 Mag HO onto which I installed a Procharger earlier this year, after propping it runs high 70's all day. Prior to the SC'r, it ran about 67 GPS. I have over 60hrs on it and have had no problems whatsoever. Although the deadrise is 22 deg it handles our big water here on Lake Champlain just find. I had initial concerns also until I test drove it! It would surprise you! A pad type bottom not unlike the Velocity. You should be able to find a older "new" rig for alot better price (like I did last year) because they are a Canadian built boat and not to well know down here, especially from the performance standpoint, so they sit. The appointments and rigging is first rate...alot better than alot of better known performance boats. Try one out but opt for the 800 or 910. PM me if you want more info!
