for the highest resale value, best performance and best looks go for a 27 FOUNTAIN!

Default Older Powerboats?

Last summer went up the Antique Boat Museum go to the website

abm.org

and had a great time, if you ever get a chance to go, it is in Clayton NY on the Thousand Islands, and it has the coolest Hacker that for $15 they take you out for like an hour on the St Lawrence..

Anyway, after looking at the old vintage wood stuff, I cant help but believe that boats like the 70's 27/28 Cigarette's, Magnum's, Bertrams are going to be similar classics X number of years out.

So that being said, and after looking around I am "in love" with that look. How would you guys suggest actually making a run at buying a good one?.. should I look fresh water only? any places to look? any good deals that you know about?

My last speedboat was a 22' Donzi, and I would like something a bit bigger for a dayboat here in the SandyHook NJ area.

The money I spent here on my membership I think was probably the best $$ spent...

Are you using the boat in the Sound or in the Ocean?
Either way I'd go w/ a heavier boat... especially since you are not
too concerned with top end.
The 27 Magnum is hot, but with such a low sheer, its tough to get standups. Al Grover's in freeport has one.
I'd go with an older Cig. or a Pantera.
Pantera has that older classic line.
And since you just want a day boat, a large cabin is not too important!
If you do decide to look at a pantera 28, stay away from waterheater out in the hamptons!
