How to win all of your Poker runs!

Don't have to go for 28' : Here is a small rig that could for sure kick all of ya asses in the rough :



My vote goes for the 28 Apache ! Also love the 28 Panthera. As for the bat boats: Maybe good boats, just does not like the design. Looks like a Mosquito in my opinion.

Good luck!

Been there, Bought that.
I was looking for something a little bigger to expand my horizons with confidence. I'm not too familiar with Saber , what was that website again? .

BTW, I currently have a very nice 2000 24 Superboat for sale if anyone you know is interested...

Jromy, I am not doubting the abilities of a batboat. I truely think that they should be held in a seperate class of their own due to their purpose built design and abilities. They are the boatworld equivalent of the ferrari Enzo. A race boat sold to the general public eventhough you can get them with a finished cabin. So basically my question was in regards to the 28 footers other than the batboats. Just didnt know if the 29 would be able to be considered. Cause I know the fountains are typically fast boats for their size. But how much of the rough riding ability is sacrificed compared to a 28 apache, cig, pantera, joker, saber, etc.

Nauti Kitty,


This is the 2000 28' Pantera we built for Johnny Tomlinson at TNT.It is now owned by a friend of mine here in Miami powered by the same 850 HP blower motor with # 3A speedmaster drive.Top speed is in the mid 90s on GPS.

This boat has a 3 man bolster with race dash and a simple back bench.

The 28' is transom length without platform.We offer the 28' in a single or twin engine version.We have powered the 28' in the past with as much as twin 750 HP big Blocks and single 1000 HP.

We have delivered quite a few with twin 500 EFIs and 525 EFIsrunning well in to the mid 90s on GPS.

Absolutely beautiful boat as usual Jo. I would love to get my hands on one of your 28s. Just not in my budget currently. Perhaps I might be able to find a older one one of these days that will fit.

BatBoat Are cool, but too pricey for me at this time. Very nice boats no doubt, if you got that kind of money. They would be a blast for sure.

Very confused by this statement. Have you ever priced our boats? Most have custom paint and over 10 k stereos, etc., but that is the choice of the customer. You can order them any way you want. I can not think of a boat on your list that has a better $$$ per MPH with standard options.
