Cigarette couldn't sell their 30' even before the economy went sour. Maybe OL buyers are not so picky...

With lifting hooks, I could see a few becoming yacht tenders for the rich and famous and the center console question, I have always been under the impression that if you want it and are willing to pay for it, they will make you just about anything....

Cig built and sold a lot of 28 and 31 foot boats in the past, but when you build them and try and charge the same as a 35 or even close to a 38 it doesn't work. They even sold quite a few 20's. And they were not built like the 38's back then, at least the couple I have seen.

If done to a production boat standard they should sell, heck where else you going to go today and get a 28 - 32 offshore boat. plus when the market does turn they at least have the option.

There are so few builders with entry level models anymore the sport is killing itself, JMHO, YMMV

Not disagreeing with anything you said, but there is Kryptonite, Activator, Superboat, Progression, Tuff, Joker, Phantom, Laveycraft just to name a few

Everyone of those(except maybe Lavey) owners would most likely rather have an OL. IMO.

+1 I know those are all great built boats but except for Lavey Craft, most are bare bones stripped down boats. Sit down, not much of a cabin, etc. Not what most people are looking for.

It's not even a comparison. OL is making the 28 footer for the owners who don't want to hasstle with their 50 footers to go for a ride. Also, OL is not building the 28 to RACE, they're building it for pleasure. Therefore....Activator, Kryptonite, Superboat, Phantom would be out of the picture for comparison sake. I think the 28 is going to be an awesome boat. It'll be the first of it's kind. Imagine 28 footer with the anemities of their usual boats. It's going to be killer.

I hope the guys at OL's, when pricing these boats, know the differance in being "Proud" and being 'silly'...

That's the key, as Von Bongo said. The price can't be crazy, even if it is an OL.
