Pantera 28.
Just sold a Donzi 28ZX with 350 mags.
Not a bad riding boat but not like others in this group. 70mph with 350 mags and
75 with scorpions. I've read they tend to chine walk with higher power.
The Pantera is a bunch more fun to drive in rough water even with a single. Tends to cut the waves and not smack through as much. More comfortable at higher speeds in very rough water. Feels like you could never damage it in any conditions. The Donzi didn't feel that way
but I liked that boat as well.
The 350mag/Bravo combination is undestructable.

In response to Todd35's first post. This person obviously has no idea of what a 28' Saber is or what it can do. Powerboat Magazine thought enough of this boat to award it "Outstanding Offshore Performance" sometime in the last ten years.
I guess my no-name 27' Activator isn't worth crap either.

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 $20K with 500hp's, because that is what the last one I heard went for (buzzin bye)
"no name boat", obviously you are a FU&^$%G moron.

I am sorry that I have made some people upset I was just clearly stating the facts (And Blue Book Value). I thought we were trying to help this guy out not put him in to a hole.

By the way, how much does a 28' saber cost? or a 41' cost?
Please do not be made I do not want to hurt your Feelings.......

Funny you should ask about the cost .... Just did a comparison the other day and was happy to remember what a great deal my boat was and is ... Now ... I'll give you the crappy resale on a 28 currently ... but if I remember the title of this thread asks for the BEST 28' for rough water ... and I can assure you that there are NO boats in the same 28' category that will be better in the rough then the SABER ! Granted ... some of the resale may be due to the lack of a marketing presence (once again ... no T-shirts) and the fact that the last couple guys who actually moved boats "dumped" them rather than continue to wait for a cash buyer ... That said .... I can think of quite a few boats from "household" brand name builders that have had a couple birthdays in the classifieds . What does all this tell us .... I don't know ... stick with golf another summer ?????

Let's go another route ... what 28 would you bring to the OK corral if I'm packin Buzzin's old boat ... Hhmmm ?
