Not a complete waste of time. I didn't bother to ask a nearly identical question because I knew if I lurked around long enough, someone else would do it for me.

I'm looking along the same lines, my debate is a new 28 ft single, or a used 32 ft twin. I had Sunsation, AT, Powerplay, formula, and nordic on my list. I'll add pantera to it as well.

Thanks.
Is that good enough, or does it have to be the OP who replies?

OK, Well I looked at all of them and ended up with the A.T. Best all round boat in that size. Great freeboard (safety) cabin size (overniteing) Handles like a much larger boat (I think it thinks it is 32 ft) will spank alot of 32fters in the rough. Custom built solid as a rock. TRUE 28 FT. add a swim deck you have a 31 by most other builders stanard's. I could go on but you get the picture.

Please jump into any thread and post questions at any time. Its good to know we we're typing for reason. I would say the rough water ride of a 28 pantera or 28 AT are comparable to most 32's. The Sunsations are great boats, but will beat you up in the rough a lot more.

Ha, my boat thinks its a 35 Went through them all, in short its which one is on your short list that is in your price range. 28 saber, 28 pantera, and 28 apache were on my short list.

Great looking boat. Did you just buy recently? Those graphics look familiar.

I no longer have it, (longer story) But I bought it new from Pat Active Thunder in the spring of 06. I loved the boat, it is in Buffalo N.Y. now.

Sutphen has a great 26. The new 277 will even be better!

Aother vote for 28 AT. The rough water perfromance of this boat really impresses me. Big Time has a 29 Fountain and I hammer him in the snot!

Well a 29 Fountain is the size of an AT25 Tantrum; except the AT has more freeboard!
