Default Active Thunder's new 28 design

We have just delivered our new design in our 28 Offshore boat. It is powered by a 525 merc. We changed up the design and mirrored it to it's older brother the 32 offshore. Our 28 rode and handled well already, but now it handles even better. We had it out yesterday it 2-4's and it really ate up the water. I will post some pictures. This boat is on its way to Va today.

Yesterday we saw 73 mph and I am estimating with some labbed props and some break in time it should be a 75-76 mph boat. We are very happy with those speeds as this is a big 28.

thunderdan...I will eventually be in the market for a 28' to a 32' boat and have been bouncing between sunsations and sonics...but the AT looks pretty impressive. I would love to know the price range on that new 28'.
