How new?

My research said Pantera, Active Thunder, Powerplay. (You can see what I chose, but they're hard to come by.)

Warlock in big water. We run 80+ in 2ft seas. It has a pad so nice soft landing. Of course I am biased but I have owned lots others and hold onto this boat. Only negative is the build quality is so so. We updated a lot of things. This is kind of standard in this size boat. New equals would be the vendetta. But the are like 200k.
