How much is the base price for your 28' Bat with HP500?

From looking at the ones running around on the board I assumed 100K. But I was afraid to ask.

I really love the BatBoat, but I had this misconception they were expensive.
Never be afraid to ask, you can always email me at [email protected]. Reindl 28 Vamps can go for anywhere from $78,000 to $90,000 with those engine options. 600 HP can get you over 100 MPH for less than $95,000. We have been backed up for awhile now, but would like to get more of them around the country in the hands of people who are willing to take other's for a ride. We have found that is the best way to sell the boat, as most will never beleive what the boat is capable of unless they get in it them.

Bring it on!

Just made a deal on an engine for the new Activator, 750hp blower motor. This will put it just over 100mph!

I have never see or heard of anyone getting wet in a 28'. If you look at the 2 designs, they are very, very different. The 24 is designed for racing, and to go through waves if it has to.

Ofcourse a bad driver can stuff any boat, but the 28 is no more likely to stuff than any other boat. The picture below shows the attitude of the 24, and it is actually less likely to stuff than other boats as well, but it is the only 24' boat out there even running in 6-9 footers. The photo is from the first APBA pro race at Daytona. Photo by Freeze Frame Photography.

HEY! Earlier, you said you were going to run 650 hp...

Anybody got any deals on nitrous systems? Turbines?

C-spray

Did'nt know about this engine when I made the statement about the 650hp. I'm running an XR-drive so I wanted to stay at about 650 for reliabilty, but having 750, I wont' have to run full throttle to kick Warpaints ass

Chuck, ol Bj had to call his engine builder when he heard i was going to be there! Bj needs the extra power to make up for his lack of hull

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.

Go with the Joker. If I was in the market my top pic would definately be the Joker and then maybe a 28 Apache. Following those two would be the Pantera
