If Formula would put those Twin 480hp Yanmars like I had in my last 43 Nortech that would be sweet. You would get that 400ss probably into the high 60's maybe 70 and then it would be more fun. I personally like the 400ss for its room and functionality. Ive also had a chance to be on my buddys 48 Fountain cruiser in KW this year, thats one big bad boy.

I've said this before, I LOVE MY BOAT when I'm rafted and overnighting I dont like the speed thats it.... Cruising at 37 and Top speed is low 50's which is great for a cruiser I thought I could deal with it but obviously I need a different boat... This thread is actually alot of what I'm looking for, I want to do some Poker Runs, Overnighting is a must, and I'm 6'-6" so the cabin will need to be good size in the new boat, as where the size of my 400SS is perfect. If it sells it sells if not it will be cleaned, waxed and ready to go on April 1 on the lift!!!!!!!!!

I know Sydwayz has chimed in multiple times. . . .

You really should look at an Active Thunder. It meets your criteria - speed, price etc. Their cabins are quite nice. My buddy Macklin bought an AT last May. The cabin is stunning! The boat will run over 80 w/ 525's!

Formula's are nice too.

Pics of the 2008 37 Active Thunder Tommy Bahama cabin and the whole boat are below. Loaded, Air Conditioning, Stand-up head/shower, 90 mph with a LIFETIME hull warranty and 5 years of Mercury Warranty = not a bad package.

My thoughts exactly, and it's a big 38' in every sense of the word... The huge cabin is a great benefit though.

Jeff, VERY NICE RIDE!!!!
It's been awhile, you are on your 3rd 43' WOW!!! I have to agree, the 43' NorTech has a killer cabin, just a tad bit shy of the 50'. We have been on both the 43' and the 50', lots of room and first class!!! Trond & the boys at NorTech are the best!!!!

The headroom is 6'7" at the tallest point in the cabin or 6'1" at the sink/fridge/micro area. The head is a true walk in head with 6'7" headroom, no step ups for easy entry. 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

First class blue water boat!!!!!

Jeff, same on my 38', hung headliner on fiberglass cover marine plywood. Again, very nice!!! Here is a couple from my Powerplay. You going to be in Miami for the show? Robbie

Need more info as far as cabin options...I would think headroom would be a main concern. 38 ft 380 Powerquest "Avenger" has 5'9" headroom in a spacious cabin with alot of amenities
Also whether they want to trailer or not. The best spacious cabin is a Black thunder

CORRECTION: Headroom 5' 7" (67")

Here are the pics of the cabin of my 37 AT. They are all custom and well appointed. If you want headroom, the 39 and 43 Nortech are the best in class, foot for foot.
