Reality is most of us get in a hotel for the evening - but the Reindl 28 Vamp does sleep three. We typically use the cabin for storage for all our water toys (the boat planes out at 15 mph or so) and one rockin stereo out of the view of theives. Below is a top view, with room for 5 seates. We are working on a pad for the back, as only 2-3 ladies currently fit on the bow.

Now keep in mind people, this is an actual offer...some of you guys must think your boats will outperform a batboat, don't you?? And to think that Saber had twins...the bet would still be on against the single engine batboat.

It's true the V-24 is pretty single purpose, although Reindl is chomping at the bit to build an open cockpit version for lake running...sort of the Porshce Boxster on the water.

The 28 is a five seat screaming machine...has all the amenities of most 28' offshore boats. Dale Babin's 28 actually has an LCD TV in the cabin with a DVD player. I've overnighted in the 28 many times with three people sleeping below deck and had no problems with room...most others in its' class won't actually sleep three people.

What some people forget is we run offshore boats for the joy...the fun...the challenge. I've run in quite a few offshore boats over the years, every chance I get I like checking out the other possibilities...in the end there is nothing that gives me the rush of running a 28. It's nice to see the eyes of someone running a 35-45' boat with twins or even triples as you smoke past them in 3-4'ers like they're sitting still...you can actually see them cussing you and banging the steering wheel.

I think someone out there should be jumping at the chance to run against one and put the money down on the table. As they say, the buck stops here!
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, who's gonna bring their 45 foot hustler/outerlimits/ apache/saber/ or whatever with about 3600 hp in four footers and finally put this to rest?

I'm not in on any of this, but why should it take a 45' boat to shut him up? Is there not a 28' that will run with these boats?

lets use logic and common sense people, i really do not care if a batboat is faster than my SABER, i'll take that bet with a outerlimits/3600hp.

please if your going to b.s. people, at least make it somewhat believable
