My buddy built this boat new.
The boat sunk in salt water in FL for the 3rd owner.
National sold it for 30K minus power/drives after it was repo'd along with a 37 Outerlimits that was owned by the same guy.
Boat went out west........

Those are the facts I know........

Jupiter, on the other thread you mention how overbuilt these 38's are. Better ride than the 41' Apache? That's saying alot. I know Dan was obsessive.

I was talking to a buddy of mine in Key West that has the 38 here in Maryland, it really is a shame PowerPlay went out of business when they did and there are not more of these on the used market... When my 400SS sells, I will be buying another boat and I will be looking at whatever 38 PowerPlay are on the market as consideration.

Here is the quote from Jupiter:
Powerplay 38's are ridiculously overbuilt and therefore heavy...... Best riding boat I have ever been on and I have caught rides on everything from a 38 TS TG, Sunsation F4, 41 Apache, Nortech 43V........ The Powerplay was outstanding!

This is one man's opinion, right wrong or indifferent, everyone is entitled to a opinion. I agree with the exception of the 41 Apache and the 43 Nor-Tech. Both of these boats having the majority of Speedmaster drives..(Like mine) which are way different then bravo style boats. I would have owned a 38PP, but did not get along with Dan, for numerous reasons. If someone of quality would start building the 38 PP molds again, and I was willing to go down in size, the 38 PP would be the only other hull in the 37-40' I would consider. Jeff
