Whassup-
About all I can say is to be patient with your search. You have a great line-up of boats you're looking for there. I would add the 28' PowerPlay into that mix- they didn't make a lot of 'em but they are very nice.
We had been looking at similar boats, mainly the AT, 28 Sonic, and Pantera. IMHO, the best balance in this length of boat has twin SBC power. We bought a used ('99) 28' AT with twin 350 MagMPI's when visiting a friend in Pompano last December. I had seen the boat on their web-site, took the factory tour, and fell in love with it. I do not know how many they made with this package, but it can't be many- most are singles. The boat is set up with a rather agressive x-dim and will do 74 (for now )

Good Luck- the right one WILL come along!

Check out Raymond Marine , at LOTO. They have a Pantera and a powerquest that fit into your price range.

Tell Charlette that Mark, her farmer, says hi.

I know there are boats out there in my price range what I'm looking for it is far from impossible!!
I saw TOO OLD's 1994 pantera with twins sell for $40,000
also a 1999 sunsation with a HP500 sell for $54,000
a 1998 AT with 502 for high 40's
a 1998 donzi ZX at aqua marine with twin 350's for $50,000
2 sonics at offshore marine sell for around $50,000 I didn't have the money in the fall so I missed on these!


so it is far from impossible but they are definately limited just looking for a liitle help from people out there and more ideas??

Thanks again and keep lookin

I just went to Raymond's web site and looked at the Pantera and it look's like it's in good shape!!
Give them a call, but hurry before someone else finds it!! I think that's the problem, there are a lot of people looking for the same thing!!
Does anyone reconize that boat?

I looked at that boat in the fall. If it had twins I would buy it, but Panteras are very heavy and need alot of power to make them go, that boat does about 60-62mph on gps. it would take to alot more motor to get the speed I want. but thanks for the post!!
And keep them comming I'll find one?????????

I may have an answer for you. If my wife and I decide to build a new house we may be selling the boat. It is a 1999 29' warlock world class with 75 hrs. Has 502 with whipple (just installed last fall), billett XR drive(2 hours), IMCO ext steering, k-planes, race lay-up, GPS speedo that has shown 79 mph (still testing props - should easily break 80) , full cabin and cockpit. This is not a coverted race boat. 55K may be at the low end of what I would take - I need to add up my receipts.

Too Old, do you know that Pantera? I saw it on another website, about 40 fewer hours and about $9k more. I'm thinking it is an old ad, not two different boats.

I've been thinking a little about that Pantera, but I think I want to go just a little bigger.
