840HP Arneson's = 122MPH
750HP Arneson's = 115MPH
600HP Arneson's = 104MPH
600HP Bravo's= 92MPH
525HP Bravo's = 87MPH
500HP Arneson's = 86MPH
500HP Bravos w/standoffs = 82MPH
500HP Bravos =78MPH

Ive never been on a 32, one of my good buddies has a 344 Cheetah with 500's that runs high 80's all day, sometimes low 90's.......

A 32 hustler is more comparable to the 35 Fountain. Sorry, but the 32' Fountain includes the platform. The 32 hustler is 32' without a platform.

33 Powerplays run well. The 32 Hustler is one bad ass machine

I believe that the 32 Hustler was at one time the world-record holder for speed in a v-bottom. Powerboat Mag did an article about that boat years ago and they loved it- I'm sure I still have the issue somewhere.
I've never heard a bad thing said about that hull. I think the 32 Active Thunder would be a very comparable boat for true 32's, although I'm not sure if anyone has pushed one well into the triple digits like the Hustler.

i've been in the boat he's referring to on numerous occasions. before it was sold to the current owner she had 540 bulldogs in here making just under 600hp...best we got out of her was i beleive 91-92 mph...was 3-4 years ago. that was an AWESOME boat. spent many a day in the Atlantic soaring her through 4-6's and occasionally some bigger. no comparison between a 32 and a 344 in my opinion. the 32's were built like bricks, no steps and were rock solid.

A 32 active thunder will run 80+ mph with 500hp's and if its 100% dialed in(audactity) will run 86mph.
If you start talking stepped hulls, there are plenty of boats that are faster and bigger with equal power. My friends 33AVH ran 80mph with stock 502mpi's and boxes with labbed props. A T/S top Gun will run 82+ with 500's. A 353 Formula will run 82+ with 500's. The list goes on and on.

32Storm.....The boat Im talking about has no power....I know there are a ton of newer stepped boats that will outrun a 32 hustler with the same power.....Im just asking about anything that is in the price range of this hustler without power which is $25K........

32storm.. You forgot to mention the compensation for the beak as well. I always compare one size up in the fountains for that reason.

How would a 31 Sonic SS compare?
