Default Any 32 hustler owners out there.

Looking at a 1995 32' with a pair of 454 mags and bravo 1's. I'm affraid that this boat may be a little under powered. Any assistence would be appreciated..

When I was the Hustler dealer in 1994, the factory sent down a 32' with 502/415s for me to show and demo.

It was a great boat. Very fast and behaved itself in the rough stuff I like to run in.

Make your offer subject to survey and sea trial. I bet you'll love it.

thank you very much. this one is powered with 454 mags and unsure if there 365's or 385's. Claims it runs 80mph. a buddy of mine had an 89 32 with a pair of bull dogs approx 600 each and she only ran 90

I asked Paul Fiore why the 32' had no steps. He said the extra speed wasn't worth the loss of safety and good handling. I doubt if the 365s are in that boat. More likely the EFI 385s.

Call this guy who drove that boat more than I did:
Dino (954) 260-5310 He'll tell you all about how that boat is a winner.

There is a guy here in VA, Frank Hubble, with twin 900s and Bravo drives in a 32 Hustler. Yeah, you could put a few more ponies in there.

I'm obvoiusly partial....the 32 is a sweet boat. But there is no way that boat is 80 MPH with that power. I've got the 502 MPI's, and the best I have seen is 78. With the 502 MPI's, it's suppose to be a 80 MPH package. July '93 Hot Boat tested a 32 with 502's, B-1's with 1.36:1, and 25 pitch Mirage props for an 80 MPH pacakage. Hot Boat also did a test in '97 with Volvo 502 EFI's @470 HP with 1.48:1 Duoprops for 85.8 MPH on radar @5,400 RPM.

Of course, you can always just buy a 32 with bigger HP.
