How long is thaat boat?
It looks shorter than their 32.
I know they made a 30, but I thought most of them had outboards and lots of storage.

I found out my 34' Super Hawaii is a stretched 32 Midnight Express. Actually they added 2' of swimplatform.
The molds were aquired after the owner of Midnight Express went to prison for selling boats to drug smugglers.
It does have a 25 degree hull and is great in rough water. It came from the earlier Corsa hull.

It runs great. It has staggered engines so when I get airborn it flys very flat. But, If I get a lot of air the bow comes down a little to soon. It's very good in rough water. It's got a very comfortable (smooth) cruise in 3-4 footers.

The boat is 32'. I am in the process of repowering the boat. I bought it in dec of 2009. engine & drives were missing. I am repowering it with triple outboards & a bracket. It is a very cool boat.
