The 32AT molds were sold. I think you might have a little adrenaline rush if you take a close look at another newer boat builder.

The 33AT could be built as a straight bottom today, as well as the 37AT.

Did someone say 28' Pantera? No?

I think you should buy Elite Marine's. It's a sex machine.

I've had both. They are both built very solid and neither is going to break apart.

That being said, the rough water ride in my 32 AT is far superior to the ride in my 28 Pantera.

Funny, I was about to ask the same question. I am considering moving back up in boat size after the weekend at the shootout. Everytime I go to LOTO I start wanting a newer, faster bigger boat. Those 2 boats are on my shortlist, and throw in the 33 powerplay as well.

The 32 Hustler is a traditional deep V design with a notched transom. The 32 was made by Hustler from the early 80's until '97. With such a long production run, rigging and interiors vary thru the years. Hustler set these up primarily with stern drives, but you'll find some from the 80's that pop-up on the market with dual & triple egg beaters. During the 80's Hustler also sold a number of these with surface drives.

Excellent handling and balance, handle the rough water well, and fast hull design. Expect weight for a 90's 32 to be around 7,500 lbs. If you are looking at one of the later ones from the 90's, you will McLeod interiors, Gaffrig gauges, and other top quality components. Wiring and rigging is all top notch. The wiring behind the instrument panel is machine tool quality. I could ramble on, but you get the point.

Any particular years you are looking at?

(4)adults can easily sit in the cabin. It would be a tight squeeze for a 6' in the head. The head compartment is located on a raised floor, so you don't get the full cabin height. It's similar size head to what you'll find in a Formula 311, or 35 Fountain.
