I can't tell if it's 32 or 37 from the angle and distance the photo was shot. I have seen it advertised as a 37. Haven't seen that many plain bottom 37's either. But it is good looking!!

It is a 1998 37 with b max drives.They had blower motors in the boat took them out and put stock motors in.I think the b-max is draining the horsepower. He says he is only getting 60 out of the boat.

Buy it! It's a beautifull boat. What motors, and what can be done to get her up to speed.

He has said he could swap out the b-max for the new bravos.I am thinking just build the motor some with super chargers.

Boscoe....
Ask Pat what's the deal with the speed. I thought plain bottom 37's with 502efi's ran 70-72mph. and 78-80 with 500hp's. That was 500hp's they used in the test boat in Powerboat several years ago..Correct???

Thanks for the words Fred I have been on the phone for about a hour getting info on the boat It seems to be what I am looking for . I have never rode in one and really dont know a whole lot a bout them .I think if I understood this right that the Active Thunder and the Sonic are the same hull .
