I saw this boat at the 2005 Miami show. Built to take serious punishment.

Don't know why it's so much less than the other one though.

I was in that boat when Craig first brought it out to Havasu. No issues what-so-ever with that boat. It wasn't as "blinged" out as the following models and it's older than the others is the only reason I can see for the price difference. It was absolutlely AMAZING though!! Fast with 525's (mid to upper 90's if memory serves).

Can someone tell me the story of Dragons? Seems like a cool boat.

That boat is immaculate, and at that price it is a steal.

Belongs to one of the FMO guys- I've shot it at least a dozen times. No matter what kind of water that bad boy runs FLAT. Everyone I've ever talked to about Dragons says they handle like they're on rails.

Love the boat and almost bought it at the begining of the season but got such conflicting reports from people it scared me away. Sometimes I think the info from these sites and so many peoples different opinions can really screw with your head when your trying to purchase. You talk to some people they say its great, you talk to other people ,parts fall off and the ride sucks. I guess thats the way it goes.

Maybe you should go back down there and spend some quality time(2-3 days) driving it. That will separate truth from BS.

Craig didn't build many of them, six I think, but except for the one that went to California I haven't read anything negative about the Dragons, and even that boat was squared away by a different engine/drive setup.
