Default Magic Wizard and Sleek thoughts

I was looking at a 29 Magic Wizard and a 30 Sleek. They look like sharp boats but I have not heard much about them. Boating in KY, they don't get much exposure down here. I was wondering if anyone had any experiences or opinions with them?

Thanks for your comments

Those are pretty popular West coast boats, in ym opinion the Sleek Craft is of higher quality. I work as a mechanic out here in California, we see alot of them. If you are not head set on anything yet though and that is the style boat you are after you should take a good look att he Lavey Crafts, they are VERY well built and the rigging is great.

Isn't magic and sleek made by the same company? They share the same website.

Same company...
29 Wizard was an original Don Aronow design,VERY small cockpit,straight V,no steps,don't think they handle big power very well.
30 SleekCraft,Old design,styling,dating back to the Bruce Nescher era,Larger cockpit,Heavy stable boat.
...For an Honest Comparison,call Keith Sayre @ Sleek/Magic in Havasu,one of the most honest ,stand up people in the biz...

jking13, not sure if your buying new or shopping.

I have a 2007 Pantera 28 for sale that has 90 hours on a Myco trailer. These boats run like they are 30 plus footers in the rough and have a real good size cockpit.
Boat is Platnium Gelcoat, tri-color interior, Boyds Motorworks engine, lots of great hardware.
I have over 140k invested, selling for 97k or best offer!!!
Let me know if anyone wants pic's.
