Question Avanti boats? how are they?

I would like to get some objective input on the Avanti's 33'.
I know it's not a cig. and not a house hold name.
I am considering, having a hull finished with 525's.
Opinions? THX.

Like I told you before watch out for the year they are trying to pass the boat off as. But other than that they are solid. I would worry more about who is gonna rig it.

Avanti is Gone the place closed up and they sold the molds and name.

THey use to leave the molds outside and when they needed to make a boat they would clean all the water and garbage out and make a boat.My buddy had a 27 it did run through some snotty waves.
