Donzi has the 28ZX that they will load with twin Scorpions. Take away the swim platform and its probably about 26.5 feetlong.

I dont think Fountain will put twin bigblocks in the 29 any longer.

Superboat makes a 24 and you can put twin outboards on it . I would classify that as a performance boat. Cuz I got one.

Hey Wally,

I build my 28 model with twin big blocks for many years now.Our 28 is bigger than allot of the boats in this size range.I have some running over 100 mph with twins now.We have put in as much as twin 800 HP motors with speed master drives in this model in the past.The majority of them have twin 496 Mercruisers or the 500 efis.If you look in my website you will see samples of some we have done in the past and present.WWW. Panteraboats.com.Their is a few of my customers in this site that have 28 with twins.Regards, JO- Panteraboats

Remember...........a 29 is really a 26 with a beak.
