Anyone know what kind of boat this is?
« on: November 07, 2011, 05:53:43 pm »
OK, I know it's not a Stinger, but whenever I run across a boat like this I have to stop and look.  Ran across this boat this weekend.  It's about 39' long.  Hull id starts with AMC which is listed as American Marine Design.  Can't find any info on this manufacturer or the boat.  Anybody have any info?

Hard to tell with the windshield covered up and no good interior shots but I"ll take an educated guess at an early model "Lavey Craft" as the side rail looks familiar.
One thing puzzels me is the side vents which look like nothing I have seen before except on a Baron, but they were cruisers???

The reversed radar arch is really knawing at me so I will dig deeper and see if I can actually correctly identify this boat.

If I remember correctly, the HIN ended with "95" which I believe makes it a 1995 boat.

Might be a Python??? The rear transom area was always differnt on Pythons and similar to that boat. Not sure if Pythons had radar arch's though???

Why don't you just knock on the guys door and ask him? I'm dying to find out now..............I've been going through hundreds of pics to try to identify this boat and can't find anything...

Boat is about 1.5 hours south of me at a car dealership.  Saw it on my way to camping with my boys.  I will have to see if I can figure out what dealership it was and maybe give them a call.

Saw a Sonic going down the highway on a trailer today.
It had the same radar arch as the one in the pic, however the front of the hull was different in some aspects.
Can't say for sure if its an older model Sonic???

Without a clear shot of the windshield I can't say for sure, but it might be a 86-88 Sutphen???

Possibly an Avanti???


I'm dying to know now. Go knock on the guys door will ya!

DEFINITELY A SONIC!!!
Saw the vents on the rear and are exact to another Sonic I looked at.

I am now 100% sure!
