Active Thunder and Sonic are NOT the same the hull. The 37AT is an amazing boat. You will not be disappointed.

If you want a GREAT AT, I'll give you the number of a guy that has a BEAUTIFUL 37 AT, that was on the last trip. Fantasy Lane is the BEST 37 AT without steps out there. TOTALLY new boat New soild wood transom, new fuel tanks, new cockpit, Chief Engines, new drives, etc, etc,. Call me, if you want the numbers. They are sea trialing it tomorrow (11/09), but I can let you know.

I haven't read through all of the other responses so forgive it I repeat. But those B-Max drives are an expensive unit(s). I think they are good to 1000HP without hammerin them out of the whole. They are heavier than the new Imco Extreme drives but also have large shafts and large diameter holes for colling. If your gettin the boat for a decent price the drives make it worth it. No worry about droppin in power. And you will be powering up. Good luck in your boat purchase quest.

That's a real nice looking boat! If it's in your price range I would go for it. For another 12 grand or so you could whipple it and get 75 out of it easily. And you won't have to worry about breaking drives. Why did the guy put the stock motors back? Of course I would take it for a sea trial. And get a survey. Good luck! Also what others have said, call the factory and get some onfo on the boat.
