 I have seen a few older ones about and they look good.

 

The age of them suggested the build quality was up there.

 Looking at a 98 model ,6mm bottom , 7.5 m swompa.

 

Got that jackman fine entry which i like the look of .

Went for a ride in a 26 jackman in exmouth years ago .

Came  back through the northwest passage with rolling waves that you could surf.

I was shiting myself ,this boat didnt even budge in big following seas , needless to say i was impressed.

It was a sterndrive so weight down low would have helped .

I was considering one before we purchased our Bullet. If it had been a bit newer than I would have seriously considered it.
