I have a 30 Spectre IO and bought it over the outboards after going for a test ride. Faster in the rough, faster when loaded with people and gear, and no vibration, and no oil to buy. Props are cheaper and the rumble of the exhaust is hard to beat.

While I agree the runble is hard to beat... I have twin O/B's and if I pop a powerhead, complete rebuild about $3k, nuke a lower $1200.. Now how much to replace a 900sc and a #6??? More than 4200??

Is the room where the motor would go just storage on the outboard powered version? Seems like alot of space that could be used as cockpit space.

I've got the 30' AMT DEMO boat for sale. It is a full cat, like a SKATER, SPECTRE, or MOTION. They are built on the west coast of Florida. It is in Sarasota now. It has seating for 5 and runs 90 loaded down with 5 and fuel. It was built in July of 02 with Merc 2.5's All LATHAM controls. brand new powdercoated trailer. $95,000.00 and it's yours.

A pair of 300s on a 30 Spectre should get you to about 101. What would a pair of 500 HPs get ya?

3-4 Footers should be no problem for the 30 Spectre. My boat loaded with 500 HP EFI's runs around 102 GPS with a load of fuel, 2 people and my gear, i mean beer. I have run 97 with 7 people on board. Plus you can add more power and go faster, limited with the outboards.

My 30ft motion with 300 promaxs runs 104 loaded with fuel and 4 people. Tops out 109-110, and its not hard on fuel. Ride is good but I am sure inboard would ride better. Outboards do cost much less speed vs dollar. You chose
