A focus on power
High performance boats are fundamentally for high speeds, which means that high horsepower is needed. On older models, you will commonly find an engine configuration with 350 HP outboards. However, as the newer 400 ROS engines from Mercury are available, potential buyers should expect that the newer high-performance boats for sale will have the higher performance engines. Other power options may include the 7 Marine or Yamahas.
Depending upon the manufacturer, the high-performance boats will have between 2 and 4 (sometimes 5 but this is rare) engines. Outboards may be centrally based, which is typical for the Tri or Quad configuration, or be spaced so that one engine is on the transom port and one is on the transom starboard. This placement maximizes the steering and navigation.
Two main styles
When looking at the various designs of the high-performance boats for sale, you will see that there are two primary styles. Firstly, you have the shallow hull, sportier design. These boats are marketed to those who wish to ski, raft, or wakeboard. Secondly, there is a design which resembles more of the luxury center console, cabin cruiser, and custom angler craft. On this option, the boat has the duality of serving as a leisure/ cruising vessel as well as a high speed offshore angler craft.

Use of the high-performance boats
Floridians will find that the high-performance boats are mainly for tourists locations offshore. Tampa Bay will be the more popular location on the gulf, though you may find a few spots near Panama City beach. The Keys will also be a popular location for the high-performance boats. While owners can operate high-performance vessels in the Atlantic, caution should be used as waves could be somewhat problematic in certain weather conditions.
