When Advantage first introduced the innovative 27′ Victory, it immediately made a lasting impression on the performance sportcruiser market named “Boat of the Year” by Hot Boat Magazine. Now there’s a ‘new generation’ Victory, bigger and better than ever, 32-feet in length and engineered with the most advanced technologies in the marine industry. The 32′ Victory features an incredible efficient ‘triple-step’ bottom configuration that lifts and stabilizes at the same time. And for added comfort and convenience, the 32 Victory has a new ‘cabin-forward, and extended-cockpit’ design allowing ample interior space for four stand-up offshore bolsters plus a full rear lounge bench. However under deck accommodations are as spacious and luxurious as any performance sportboat in this size class. Another ‘award-winner’ from Advantage.
One of Advantage’s most popular sportboats just got better…..thanks to the new mid-cabin bowrider model. You still have the comfort and convenience of a spacious forward cabin with seating and luxurious amenities, but you also enjoy the additional passenger capacity afforded by a large bowrider compartment. And unlike some cramped for size mid-cabin bowriders, the 30 Victory BR delivers easy access to cabin and bow with oversized entry passageways. Step on-board and see for yourself.
The most recent addition to Advantage’s growing stable of outstanding step-bottom deep-vees is the all new 30 Victory. Inspired by the overwhelming success of the 32 Victory and 40 Poker Run, the new 30 Victory takes full advantage of the latest developments in marine engine and propulsion technology. The 30 Victory is designed to accommodate either single or twin engine power options with remarkable results. Because of Advantage’s unique step-vee hull configuration, the 30 Victory delivers incredible performance and comfort. And for optimum versatility, the new 30 Victory is also offered in both conventional closed deck or open bow/mid-cabin models.
Talk about the “perfect” boat. Advantage’s 28 Victory Bowrider is exactly that. Plenty of under deck cabin with a great open bowrider compartment. And while you’re looking, please take note of the ergonomically styled seating lounges in the bow. You won’t find a better seat in the house. The 28 Victory BR also features Advantage’s unique center console helm position and spacious port side entryway to the cabin. In case you’re wondering, the 28 Victory BR uses a fully linered fiberglass cockpit, cabin and bow floor for maximum strength and durability.
The 28 Victory was engineered from the keel up to deliver exhilarating performance from a wide range of single MerCruiser Stern Drive options. All new center-console cockpit/helm design with port side cabin entry. Try this for high performance. Side-by-side center seating with walk-around access and full rear bench. Also note 3/4 style engine hatch with port side walkway. Extra wide beam design pay big dividends, adding to cabin spaciousness. Another ‘award-winner’ from Advantage.
There’s now a trio of exciting XFlight models by Advantage thanks to the introduction of the new 34 XFlight, the largest and most inspired offering in this innovative line of multi-faceted family performance boats. The 34 XFlight was conceived, designed and built to be the epitome of sportboat versatility, comfort and functionality. Its incredibly spacious interior and bow to stern amenities are unlike any boat before it. And when it comes to performance, nothing matches what this twin sterndrive powered beauty delivers in the way of efficiency, speed and handling. Its unique vee hull is assuredly the best handling, most driver-friendly and soft riding family boat you’ve ever experienced. When you’re ready to own the finest in on-the-water performance luxury, the 34 XFlight is head and shoulders above all the rest.
From Concept to Reality……..the New Generation of Performance Sportboats Is Here!
“For such a radically new design, our water tests and customer compliments of the 29 X-Flight exceeded our expectations,” commented Gary Ferguson, Advantage’s Director of Design/Engineering. “I’ve been thinking about this hull concept for a long time and I’m even more positive than before that it will revolutionize the family performance boating industry, much like the dramatic introduction of our original Party Cat deckboat over twenty years ago.”
Although from the waterline, the X-Flight 29 may appear to have a type of air-entrapment hull design, it does not. The aerodynamically engineered bow blends into an advanced stepped-vee bottom aft designed to more efficiently utilize today’s modern V-8 single engine stern drive packages and latest propeller technologies. The forward portion of the hull is aerodynamically configured to create lift. That lift makes the hull react and perform like it weighs less thus improving efficiency, reducing fuel consumption and delivering higher top speed. Yet, because it is still a vee-bottom, the boat rides soft, turns responsively and handles rough water like a dream.
“Our goal with the X-Flight 29 was to attain a new level of performance while offering a more passenger-friendly environment to enhance the family boating experience,” said Ferguson. “I think we’ve accomplished our objectives.” The new X-Flight 29 also has a unique interior configuration incorporating the practicality and roominess of a deckboat with the style and luxury of a true sportboat. Among the many on-board amenities are full walk-thru bow to stern access plus a spacious enclosed mid-cabin and starboard side boarding door. The X-Flight 29 will also be available with all popular V-8 MerCruiser stern drive packages including selected models of Mercury Racing engines.
Since their introduction, the X-Flights have become the best-selling models in the Advantage model line. “That’s a pretty incredible achievement when you think about it,” commented Scott Dreisbach, Vice President/COO for Advantage. “Usually it takes the market at least a season to recognize and really become interested in a new model. And because the X-Flight is so unique we thought the process might take even longer, but it didn’t.” Seldom does a new hull concept come along that is destined to so profoundly change the landscape of family performance boats. But that is exactly what Advantage’s XFlights have done, first with the 29-foot model and now with the new 27. They’re roomy like a deckboat yet run with the abandon of a pure bred performance machine. Although from the waterline they may appear to have an air-entrapment-like hull, they do not. The pickle-fork bow blends into an advanced stepped-vee bottom designed to more efficiently utilize today’s modern V-8 single engine stern drive packages, delivering exceptional handling, stability and load-carrying capabilities. “We heard from some potential buyers that they would prefer a slightly smaller version of the X-Flight if it were available,” said Dreisbach, explaining the motivation behind the development of the new 27. “We turned those requests over to our R&D department and put them to work on the project. It didn’t take long for them to come up with a plan to build a 27 X-Flight model. It’s virtually the same boat as the 29 except a two-foot section of the storage and cuddy cabin bulkhead in front of the driver helm was shortened in order to reduce the overall length. The result is a 27 X-Flight with nearly the same running surface as the 29, and an interior passenger cockpit that hasn’t been compromised on space. I’m very confident that the new 27 X-Flight is an outstanding addition to this exciting new line of boats.”
