Great rough water ride, deep cockpit, and very usable cabin.

What are the spec on that boat?
I see lots of 26's and one or two twim 28's.

Do you have a link to a prime example of one ?
Im curious I dont know much about them.

IF big interior space is your thing the advantage 27& 28 victory and excellent Nordic Heat are super awesome weekenders. With the victory having an almost RV like interior.

I have not seen a 28 Sonic for sale for some time but do loom for them alot.

Isn't the Nordic a 22* deadrise?

I don't know much about the Advantage but do like the lines of the Heat.

My 28 velocity was great in the rough and really fast. I run all my boats hard and I couldn't break it.

The Nordic is a 22 from what I know and there are other build factors that put it in lake boat vs ocean category.

Since DW has equal say interior may be a priority over rough.

Advantage isnt 24 degree either.

I had a Nordic 28 on Long Island Sound which snots up just fine. I wouldn't call it a rough water boat by any means, pretty hard hitting when it got rough, it's definitely better suited for lakes.. However it's a beautiful looking boat, great cabin...possibly the best out there for a 28. Great tooling also.

There have been a few threads on here regarding a porpoising issue with the 28, it's probably best for the OP to do a search if this one comes into consideration.
