Guess it depends on what you call 28'. 2 foot of beak, 2 foot of swim plat, low freeboard, no cabin with 4 man sit down is considered a 28'?

I looked at the 28EVO, it looks no bigger than an older Baja 226. My 280 looks huge compared to that boat. Also noticed they are running it in FLAT water.

I can see a 24' light layup boat doing 90+ with a 525 in it.

Well I will say this. My 29 which is 28' 11" with no platform ran 88 all day and cant be touched in the rough. That was with 470hp. No box and stock prop. This boat was not light by any standard. Please dont tell me it cant be done. Imagine what that boat would do with a light lay up and no cabin. Testing will be complete by the end of the summer and you will see the boat at the Miami boat show. We will be giving rides to prove the 100mph for a hundred grand.

When is the scheduled build date for the 28'OL? What engine package will be with the first 28' OL boat? How much will the first boat (28' OL) made cost?

The baja comment is nonsense.

The 28 Evo is 28.6 long with an 8.6 beam.
This is a waterline measurement and the boat has no step.
It is tight on the inside

The 2750 is the same size - has an much more open interior and is 30 ft when you add the swimstep.

thats going to be cool but, a merc hp 500 is over 500hp just the motor at the drive its 470hp. 525s have been dynoed at 560 plus hp from factory.both are good motors and great speed for that power. OL hey keep your options open on drives and power Konrad Ace package is a hi per set up rated for 800hp and warrantied, local builders like JIM RIED makes a 598 800hp motor for 16,000.00 he has built boat motors back in the A TO D class boats way back. or use a big name guys like GELLNER//ZUL/YOUNG/JC/TC just to name a few. I hope my Gellner motor is done in the next week or I will end up missing our pokerrun that I am helping with

My 29' Kryptonite with 550hp ran in the mid 80's. That boat had a no frills cabin and was very light. Hard to believe a 28' pleasure boat could do 100.
