    Default New Boat ?

    Just sold my Carrera Eclipse and am looking into a new Magic 28 SCEPTER, what can anybody tell me about the boats? How do they handle in rough water and what kind of performance would you expect with a new 8.2 HO. Coming from the jet boat scene and only having experiance with sterndrive family boats, what would be the highs and lows of this style boat?

    the new 8.2 is just a 502c.u. built in house by mercury marine. G.M. no longer builds big block engines so mercury needed a 8.1 replacement and went back to the production block only and builds everything from there. basically i believe it is a de-tuned 525h.p.. cannot tell you anything about the boat though sorry.

    Stay away from buying a brand new Magic. They are going under and the owner is still take orders and payments but will not build the boat. Some guys are out 10 of thousands. look and ask around. the owners name is Tony.
