270 or 300 CHECKMATE CONVINCOR. Dollor for size you can't beat the Convicor for rough water in a single.

imagine a 27 boat. designed for ruff water .can run around 95mph with single 2.5 efi outboard or more then 100 mph with inboard.No cabin.very long nose .dry weight without engine is 900lbs . composite material (epoxy-airex ).
delivery in one month.
what should be the price of such a no-name ( not a famous brand) boat?

notels do not misunderstand .there is no boat for sale. but planning to build some.

I'd say look further into a Kryptonite, true 27' single step and pad has a high x- dimension 8' beam that tapers back to 6'6" to 7'(never measured it) acceleration is excellent and attitude is great. Had the same motor in a 24 degree non step v and went a little over 80mph put the same motor in the kryptonite and hit 92. Looking for a couple of more mph this year. PS my boat is for sale due to lack of use, if you want more info e-mail me. Dave

Don't Forget WARLOCK POWERBOATS! They build a 29 and 27 Deep V that perform extremely well in the rough without sacrificing speed. The 27 has more freeboard thus more cabin headroom then the 29, but the additional length of the 29 gives it a slightly better ride in the rough. Personally I own a 27 Factory 1 boat and love it. It has taken a ton of abuse and seen some pretty sick water without problem. A good indication of rough water performance is how the Factory race boats perform. Warlock has done extreamly well in the Factory 1 & E class over the years.

If you wish we can provide you with more information and pricing on Warlock Powerboats.

Apache makes a 28 with a single engine step or non stepped, with a big cabin and 8' 6" beam and will handle loto just fine.

I'd vote for the Progression , since I have one...

You'd be really surprised at the size of the cabin and the workmanship is top rate .

BTW , mine's for sale with a brand new trailer !
