Scott has turned a best of 78mph with his 496HO 37AT. That's setup for everyday running with all the stuff aboard, not Fountain/Pamilco/performance report style.

Active Thunder and Chief Powerboats had a brief marketing marriage at one time, before Chief's demise. Let's not go down the Cheif dark and twisted path.

Getting to the main Question in Post#1:

39 Cig: Great all around boat especially hard to beat with Merc 700's. Classic lines and great looks. Kinda skimpy in the cabin but very well rigged, very well thought out helm especially when it comes to ergonomics, Above average performance and exceptional handling and rough water capability. Best resale of the three and in this tough economy they are still selling, slowly but still selling.

39Nortech: Talking with TS of NT I was told the 39 is a great boat. There are not as many around and I think that has to do with the economy and the fact that they have weird lines and not the most appealing looking boat. Great build quality and great company. Very nice cabins with more amenities than Cig and quality rigging. Not sure about the resale. I think it would depend on the specific boat and how it's set up.

37 OL: I have not been in one but a friend (Cowisl) has owned one and in several conversations with him I was told they are a great boat. Good performance and great in the Rough Stuff. Cabins are the nicest of the three by far. Big deep gunwales and roomy. Very nice lines as well. OL obviously has some of the coolest hardware out there and that speeks volumes. I would think resale for the 37 would be decent but not along the same lines as the Cig.

The statements I made about resale are based on many things but keep in mind that the Cig's are mostly Merc powered offerings where you are going to find more different combos in the NT and OL (like aftermarket power) which can hurt resale.

So what do you have to give for a new 39/700 NT?

Not sure what you are asking....MSRP? I suspect they are all 350-400K boats @ 39 ft/700's at a minimum.

I have said it before, if I was building a new 400-500K boat Terry from NT would get the call. I love the 427 and think that is a much better looking boat than the 39V but with the right paint the 39 can be a decent looking boat (Stu @ FPC had the best looking 39 so far).

What I'm getting at is you keep saying the Cig is sooo overpriced; so tell me what you'd have to pay for a new 39/700 NT...what's the difference in cost between the 39Cig, the 39NT and the OL41???
