Progression 22'

Anyone know of Progression Powerboats? Hand built right here on Long Island. Pretty much bullet proof hull, balsa core, light weight, vacuum bagged, etc. I looked at a 22 footer that was 16 years old, multiple owners and it was mint. Transom and gelcoat looked like new, a very well made boat. Brand new is custom order and expensive so that's out, but I'm looking at a 90' and tomorrow I'm going to the manufacturer to look at a 08' with no power and a 12' with a 300 Mercury. The South Shore of Long Island is big and long, hence the name. Cruising at 28 MPH on the MC gets you nowhere, and 2' of chop you might as well stay close to home which is getting old. This boat setup with safety in mind will cruise effortlessly at 60 MPH with plenty of stick left to push forward.

Here's a pic of the 22'

Yes. Old school pedal was called a Hot Foot. Pretty sure Progression uses all In Control components.

Know the hulls fairly well . They build a stout hull built for coastal off shore abuse . Prone to cracks where the transom meets the deck (if abused)
Word to the wise . If you are new to this there is a huge learning curve to driving these things . Its a pad v hull and if not balanced can get away from a novice fairly quickly . You will need to spend some serious seat time before opening it up

Thanks for the heads up I've been trying to read up a bit on this hull and all the threads echo what you said. On a side note I met the owner of Progression Powerboats today to look at a couple of used hulls that he's selling. Super nice guy. He offered his services more then once to spend a little seat time with me whether I bought a boat from him or had him survey something else I was looking at used. I've looked at a 90' 91' and today an 08' & a 12' couldn't find a stress crack for the life of me. If you have any other info or insights I'm all ears.

Mike I've never heard of them but very cool looking. How many per year do they build?
