If you are in the market for a new twin stern-drive engine high-performance boat with spacious cabin, I have good news for you. First, you can afford a new boat in this economy, and that means you likely have cash in hand. Financing a boat, much less a go-fast model that costs more than $100,000—and you won’t find a new twin-engine model for less than that—remains an uphill battle.
Second, there is the 31-foot Supersonic from Sonic Powerboats.
With twin MerCruiser 377 Mag small-block engines, the boat lists for $169,877. Crank up the power to a pair of Mercury Racing 525 EFI engines and you’re looking at a still-reasonable $210,708. Ramp it down to a single 377 small-block and the price is $132,196.
The Supersonic line is a series of V-bottom high-performance boats that range from 26 to 46 feet long. The 26- and 31-footers are positioned as “entry-level,” whereas their 35-, 38-, 42- and 46-foot siblings are targeted at more experienced owners. As such, they’re offered with more options and accordingly higher price tags.
