Boat Reviews By Owners

1993 -- 33' 0" IMP

Model: 330 VIPER

Cockpit: This boat has an average sized cockpit, it is comfortable for up to 6 people and we have had as many as 10. The construction and the materials are good quality and have held up very well. The front seats are McLeod power bolsters the kind you find in much higher priced boats. The gages are well laid out and easy to read. Being a 1993 the black gages are looking a little dated. Access to the underside of the dash is good. Also the sides are tall enough that people feel safe even in the roughest water. Storage in the cockpit is very good.

Cabin: The interior has a very modern look and is well lit. The cabin is a little short but it is larger than many of this length boat. There is storage in the front, behind bench seats, and by the sink. The sink and the fridge are nice to have. The bathroom has a porta-potty in it and has plenty of room for use. I use the bathroom as storage for all my covers, tables, bumpers, ect.

Construction: This is one solid boat. It is a little heavier for towing than some in its class, but that more than made up for in its solid construction. The cockpit seating does have some wood in its construction but it has held up very well for us. The only complaint I have about the construction is that the wiring was not run as cleanly as I would have liked. The gel coat looks nearly new still; it has yellowed ever so slightly.

Handling: The IMP does extremely well in rough water due to its construction and weight. The boat turns effortlessly and quickly with very little tendency to dig even at high speeds. We have had this boat in 8-10' waves and it gave us an exciting ride but came through just fine. This boat does not have a ride pad or stepped hull so it is not the fastest boat in smooth water. It runs 68-72 mph. In rougher water the boat is faster that many of my friend's boats that are faster than mine in smooth water.

Engine Room: The IMP has a pair of 502's connected to bravo 1 drives. I have had only minor maintenance type work to do on the engines and only one repair on a drive.

General Comments: This boat has great lines; it is a really good looking package that is well built and has held up well. One of the best things about the boat is the price; this is a really reasonably priced boat for the quality of construction and features.
