No disrespect at all, you're entitled to your opinion, it's not correct, but that's ok...I had a Cig with multiple problems, we'll just leave it at that.... When you get a chance look at the Chicago PR pics..Xcess Wetness.. my 04 43 Nortech which is owned by OSO-Rick uses the boat on lake Michigan, which is just as rough as Lake Erie. Im orig from Racine WI, so Ive been on that rough water and do agree with you on that aspect. He has almost 200 hours and everything is in tact, that is TV, Micro and Fridge which is usually omitted in the Cigs. Anyways it has alot to do with the way these items are mounted. I had the opportunity to go to and from FT Laud to KW on my maiden voyage, everyone will tell you the water on the way back was extremely rough, not a item came loose.

Here was my 04

New AT website is coming.
The 37AT is a couple inches shy of 37' without a platform.
You can find a used 37AT for less than $300K. (which is thread criteria)
List on a new one is $349K w/ 525s.
It will run 90/91mph well optioned, dialed-in, and tweaked; 87/88mph consistent.

Dude you are dreaming............the 43NT rides like a dream in the rough with the wide beam and heavy weight. I rode in a 43V with triple 650's and the boat was awesome. I have done several TG's, the new Sunsation F4 and even a 38 Powerplay which itself was remarkable.

You will not break a 43 V in any water.

Point taken... I would love to hear your experiences with the 700's as you start to put more hours on them. My next boat will be a 42x with 700's. I've only owned cigarette's so I'm somewhat partial, You have a great paint scheme on your boat.

I wasn't saying his boat would break, I said the frilly stuff would break (i.e. television). Any hull eventually will take a wave wrong and slam the boat (when in big water) and in my opinion the tv that was designed for your house is not going to last. The boat will be fine...

Ive had many boats over the years (34-PQ, 38 Cig TG, 42 Sonic, 37 A.T. and this is my 3rd 43 Nortech) and do over night, and Nortech has the plushest cabin and cockpit of them all. Also, like some of the other threads Ive been read where when running hard all the ammenities fall down or apart, totally not true. Never had a problem, extremely solid powerboat, not only for going fast but comfortable as well. Good Luck in your decision. Jeff

HANDS DOWN 43 nor tech 03 in the classifieds asking 299 with sixes and 825 efis... 95 mph.....

been drooling over this boat foe THREE yrs
