I've driven several, 525 to 1000+, you won't be disappointed. The only thing stopping me is the lack of space to store it. Please, leave TPI out of this thread.

Teague 800. "MY" Best Speed= 100mph. Will do 95-98 just about every time the kids aren't with me.

Bob Teague got 103.4mph out of it in Parker but I never can do it.http://www.performanceboats.com//attachment.php?attachmentid=37522&stc=1&d=1238408030

It's a fantastic deck boat with any power from 496 to big blower motors. I think the Howard website also gives speed estimates for different power packages. It will go as fast as your wallet is large basically...

That one was finished. I met the owner at the LA Boat Show this year, very nice guy.

We have the 525 in ours and we've had it up to 80 running a 28 lab...

I believe that this one is still available...Give Gene a call at the shop...661-257-9275


I would if my wife had the money. :D

The Sportdeck Havasu Dreamin put up is absolutely gorgeous. Drtywhat tell your uncle he better grab that one as all the homework has been done and it is a stunning boat.

You did not say what your goal is with the boat---top speed, cruiser, water activities. In anycase, the Sportdeck will handle any task you ask of it but it is prudent to tailor the boat to your needs when selecting engine/drive combination at the initial rigging stage.

The boat has exceptional handling and all the features and conveniences a family needs on a deckboat style of boat. Note: The posted speeds thus far are for ideal conditions and those numbers will come down quite a bit when the weather is really hot ie...100+ so just keep that in the back of your mind.

In my opinion, the HP525 is a great all around entry package and virtually maintenance free with respectable speeds on the top end.

I wish I was in the market today for a Sportdeck as you could get a helluva deal right now:) for a superb deckboat. If I were your uncle I would take a trip over to Howard and just tour the facility and look at that boat. I will bet you, your lunchmoney it will be worth it.

P.S. You see that Ellis trailer the boat is sitting on I would take it over an Extreme anyday of the week.
