They have been there a long time and weathered the test of time. As far as their boats they are dated old style and bottoms, no updates, depreciate quickly, heavy rough water boats.

Do a search on this site for Avanti. You'll find alot of info.

One problem is they are built in NJ, and not many people know the boat.....so resale is tough. If anything buy used and stay away from the factory.

What's wrong with building boats in NJ? I don't think that has anything to do with people not knowing them. Ever hear of Viking or Egg Harbor, Luhrs until 1987 and there are many others. I think it has more to do with the company and it's boats, not where it's built.

Do you know where Douglas Mich is? But I bet just about everyone knows at least one boat that is made there.

i had a 92 22ft avanti with a 454 mag and a bravo1...i woulda put that boat upagainst any other 22 out there...only problem is poor resale due to the fact its not a lipstick boat(scarab, fountain etc) yes they are old school in design but there is something about them. if i could find a deal on one i wouldnt hesitate. new they are way to expensive, comprabaly rigged the 27 is more than a 26 hustler or 26 sonic for that matter. if resale isnt a concern than your in good shape. i had a problem selling mine so i traded it to a dealer out west who went by the book and not the market thank god.

There is nothing wrong with building boats in NJ. But for the most part the Avanti's all seemed to stay in the local area, thus proposing questions like the one posted...."Anyone know anything about these boats". That's all i was getting at.....The resale value is hurt because so few people across the country heard of the brand.

Now Denis and his business practices are another story.
