Sutphen boats are a 3 generation boat company based in Florida best known for their offshore racing boats that have dominated the offshore powerboat racing world for years. The grandfather built motor torpedo boats for the British in WWI, the father built PT boats for the US in WW2, and the current Richard Sutphen builds custom boats(about 12 per year) that include this center console model.
The Sutphen 278CC that you are looking at is a racing hull that has been refined and its performance is outstanding. The difference of having a diesel engine forward rather than outboards hanging off the back changes the weight and balance to greatly increase comfort and decrease the "porpoising" effect in rough seas. You will be hard pressed to find a better riding and more economical fishing boat that also tops out at close to 50 knots!!
