Default Superboat???

Dont hear much about Superboat...especially the 34.
Anyone have first hand experience with them?
Handling?
Quality?

Thanks

I was looking at that online the other day, it looks like a great product. I'd give it a good look if I were in that market.

I got to board that boat and look around but didn't ride in it. It looked pretty nice. Hopefully John Coen will chime in and give more info. He's very accessable, just give him a call.

As with all Superboat products... A lot of boat for the money.


John doesn't seem to get online very often. I see a lot of interest in his boats in the forums, but I never hear much from him. I think his boats would be bigger sellers if he'd just put even a slight amount of effort into marketing his products. Last time I talked to him he said things were kind of slow. Makes no sense to me, you'd think he'd be selling those 30' Y2K's @ $50K right and left.

My opinion is if you want amenities, STAY HOME!

I think John may have got scared away from OSO back in the early days. He and his ex-wife caught a lot of flack on OSO for no reason.

Being a friend of John's I can say he is a very knowledgable individual. He builds a great boat. He does not have the facilities that alot of other manufacturers have. I am sure if he had a fascility like Fountain, Cigarette, or Outerlimits he would be producing much, much more. Give hm a shot if you are interested or give him a call.
