Nordic 28 Heat makes a nice package coupled with a 500 or 525.....will run close to 80 and does well in some pretty snotty water

Check out the 28 Active Thunder here in the OSO Classifieds.

The 28AT is a great size, light enough to tow with a 1/2 ton truck, great rough water prowess, and a nicely laid out cabin.

You won't be disappointed.

Recently, a 10 year old 25 Active Thunder; did the ENTIRE Miami to Key West (and back) Poker Run. The 25 is a smaller version of the 25 almost down to the T.

The boats run VERY well.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

WOW like asking what sports car to buy??

Seriously how, where, will you be using it, Budget? Whats more important smooth ride, top speed, pull tubers, have you ever owned a boat? Will you tow or dry store??

Many factors to be considered, really need more info to give educated advise.

Sunsation 288. You can't beat the detail and quality along with the customer service, which is second to NONE!! My personal opinion is that everything else is cookie cutter, espeicially interiors, except for Sunsations!
