Blue Wave has the new 2800 open built and it will be available hopefully by the end of the month. The boat is awesome with an open layout and lots of well thought out features. I hope to be able to post some pics in the next few days.

Clearly for someone that wants a bigger bay boat (and doesn't want to spend the $$ on the yellowfin??) and occasionally get offshore on nice days. Like some of yall have said, the twins don't make sense and since it can clearly handle the HP, wouldn't the yam 425 be better for the 80% bay application? A single 350 seems like it might be light.

BTW, I saw a new (show boat) 22 Cobia with a 150...I was cringing to say the least.

I know someone with a 425 on the bluewave 2800 and heís getting 59-60 loaded to fish, my 2800 with a Suzuki 350 gets 54-55 fully loaded and fueled for an offshore day. I also know someone with twin Suzuki 200ís, but not sure what heís getting for top end. Heís still in the break in.

My Suzuki 350 gets on plane easily and gets a little over 3 mpg at a 30-35 mph cruise.

Wow I would've expected a bigger difference in WOT speed of the 2800 with a 425 vs 350. BUT I know from my 2 decades running Allison and other high perf hulls (100+mph) that most hulls have "a wall" and all the additional horsepower in the world won't push that hull any faster once that "wall" speed has been attained. I'm assuming the 2800 is a full vee hull like my 2400 instead of a pad style like other bay boats (like say Skeeter, Ranger etc...) if it is "padless/full vee" hull then that could certainly explain why an extra 75hp didn't increase topend but only 4-5mph. (Of course that also doesn't take into consideration the physically larger and heavier 425 vs the "smaller" 350 Zuk. If both motors were otherwise identical with only hp being different, I'd certainly expect a bigger gap between topend results.)

The open 2800 sounds like "the cats azz" IMO.

I think this hull will open a whole new world and market exposure here east of the MS river for BlueWave! I'm glad to see it, sure have enjoyed my 2.5yrs in my 2400 and a 2800 in the future might just happen in a few years as my wife and I are now "empty nesters" and look forward to spending alot more time at our place on Okaloosa Island.

Canít wait to see the new open model. Was very interested originally in the 28 Floridian but used is still outa my range. The 27 tidewater looked pretty close to what I wanted but had some short comings besides reputation that 15 deg deadrise just did not work.

Then shebang I found this blue water 28 just last week very excited
the existing hull is pretty close to exactly what we are looking for and I think the updates will take it to 90% on the over all happiness factor.

We have a very large family all who love to free dive a lot so thatís why I want a boat with low gunnel height that can carry a lot of people. Make runs to the islands on good days. We spend most of our time near shore on the reef.

Be patient, from what I was told earlier today there should be more info and pics coming any day now! I have seen it and i can tell you blue wave has taken a lot of time and gathered a lot of input to ensure they are building a very well though out boat.

They have been building boats in Oklahoma for almost 30 years. They are a family owned debt free company in Seminole,Oklahoma. A couple of years ago the parents retired and the sons took over. To make this happen they brought in investors who are actually the majority owners of Malibu Boats and I believe the same group has since bought Pursuit and Cobalt.

All the hulls are 100% hand laid and 100% composite three piece hulls. They build a tank of a boat that is very light and rides and performs unbelievably well.

They have been the #1 sold bay boat on the gulf coast for like the last 15 years in a row. This is a brief overview, but if you have anymore questions feel free to ask and if I canít answer it, Iíll get an answer for you.

Well I have had the opportunity to be all over the new Model 28 open Makaira. Yes I am a fan of the new layout the new model. Fuel capacity has been increased to 135 gallons of fuel.
Probably order one early next year with the 425 or hopefully the new Merc 450.

Looking for performance fuel burns burns with the 425 or twin Merc 225.

what are the indents on the bow supposed to do? Is that like a stepped hull for aerodynamics?

Probably just aesthetics to break up the huge hull visually. I saw one the other day on a trailer. It looks huge.

The rear casting deck has been greatly reduced on the new model making for a huge cockpit.
