Roy, I think he said by the Niagra area? Don't know where that is in relation to you though. Thanks for the offer!!

There are 2 of them stored in the same building I story my boat. The owners love them. They both have 454/310s and run about 68-70. that thing should fly with hp500s

One of our local dealers sells them. I have been through them before and they look to be a sweet boat. I have seen them run but never had the chance to go for a ride. Based on fit and finish and looks they are a great boat. 46K would have been the steal of the century!

Their paint is a five layer deal ending with gelcoat! Here is the website;

See for yourself.
I could not find a picture of the bottom at the Campion web site and my info may be dated. Indeed, if it the hull has a step, it is dated.

The older Campion 30 footer was very much like the original 30 foot Velocity and there were rumors that it was splashed. The last one I saw, four or five years ago was very much like a Velocity bottom. It did look very well made.

There is one is for sale here in Canada in the Niagara region. If you go to www.autotrader.ca and do a search you will see one listed for $118,000CDN.(roughly 70K U.S.)

I saw this one first hand at the boat launch and it was very nice!! The owner claimed he was getting mid 80's out of it.

Just paging through the local boat/rv trader (Canadian) there are two 2000 model Campion's for sale one w/500HP Bullet motors & the other w/600 DPX Volvo's don't look like either have a step but I did hear that they have a pad bottom similar to Velocity - both look really nice autotrader.ca is the site- never heard anything bad about a Campion & I'm sure you could get a steal this time of year especially in Canada (exchange rate 58%)
