Looking to buy a cat in the 28 to 30 foot range. The 28 profile has really caught my eye but have not been able to find a whole lot of info on them, anyone out there have any first hand experiences they would like to share.

pretty nice one there. I like Profile's, I'd just rather have an Eliminator or Skater if it were me, they are a little more though judging from what I looked up on boat trader....not too much though.

Care to look into a 1999 28' Advantage Sportcat?
Two things I do not like about the Profile cats is the low freeboard along with the seat height. And no cabin area
My cabin area will allow two adults and two kids to sleep in on a weekend stay over.
Not to mention the safer higher freeboard and much more cockpit space
