Had this been done three years ago I would have drank the kool-aid.

Greg's Envision is a nice boat, and I should know (I have spent a couple hundred hours in it the last few years).

I have also hooked up with a local Advantage dealer here in the Nashville area. They are a fairly new dealer and want to move some boats. They will give you the best deal on an Advantage. Of course, they are available with Young Performance engines, or your choice of power. Let me know if you are interested and would like a quote on an Advantage. They have numerous standard features that are options in other boats. They have been doing a mid cabin for quite a while and do a very good job of it. It is offered in 25', 27', 28', and 32', among other sizes.. Let me know if I can help, Eddie.

An AT MCOB would be cool.Maybe they can design it with a hard cover for the bow as an option for when you want to run real hard

A removable open bow hard cover would be a nice option.

I like the sunsation mid-cabin. I've been in a 26 er 25 (can't remember) nordic mid-cabin and I was not impressed.

On MCOB boats from Sunsation the cockpits are identical to a closed bow boat. The performance differences are negligable. The Velocity MCOB that was at the Miami show last year looked like it was done in someone's garage with a sawsall after a 12 pack! I wouldn't want a hard cover for the open bow area in the event it came loose at speed it would potentially decapitate the driver/passenger.

I have a Sunsation 32 MCOB that runs in the low 70's with 6.2's and has been a very versatile boat.

This is my actual boat:

Never thought about that but i'm sure there would be a way to ensure that it will stay down. But accidents do happen.

Brand new "leftover" 07' Velocity 290 Midcabin sitting on the lot here. It's time for it to go. So you can buy it right. I've got the details for you at:

I have owned a closed bow 28' Nordic Heat and I currently own a 32' Sunsation Dominator. If it were me I would go with a Sunsation hands down. Attention to detail is great, customer service is second to none, resale is good, and the Sunsation is a better rought water boat. Just for clarification, I am comparing the rough water abiltiy of the 28 Sunny vs the Nordic not the 32'.

There is a 47 Fountain MCOB also. It is listed for sale in WPB, FL and is named Sandblaster.
