Definately a Cig, Flyes level and lands smooth, they are a real strong running boat in the rough and are built like brick ****houses If I had any other choice for a 28 it would either be a Pantera or a Saber

Sonic doesn't make the 28 any more, and it doesn't surprise me.

Its to bad that twins are a must because I think you would be impressed with the way a 288 Sunsation runs in the rough. Now I haven't played with mine in the ocean, but run Lake Ontario lots and that water can get really rough and unpredictable. I push mine hard and other boaters are surprized to see only one outdrive on the back after we've gone in a poker run or fun run.

Does Apache make a 28 anymore? Or do you have to find one 10 years old?
i recently sold this

You won't be sorry !!! And your buddy's will be pissed !

First of all..why would anyone want to buy a 28' Saber, and take a bath on it, when you turn around and try and sell a "no-name" brand boat???

My advice to you, is to buy something that is going to hold it's value for more than a year. Unless you can get it for $20K with 500hp's, because that is what the last one I heard went for (buzzin bye)

Tim-
The room in your engine compartment looks a LOT better than that Powerplay I looked at. Inboard work doesn't look so menacing on your Pantera. I've always admired their classic offshore lines.
Scorps are the absolute nuts on boats this size- I think two of the 28' AT's with twins have them, and they are 80+ GPS boats.
Although not a custom, the Formula 292 with Scorps is a well-built fast boat, but more like 27' in length without the molded-in swim platform, and should almost make this list?

Default Nice First Post !

Todd35.... First post and it's very negative...go figure You just broke the #1 rule for ever having any credibility. I would tell ya about Dan's boat and it's value but, you ain't worth it.
