|Since its introduction, the X-Flights have become the best-selling models in the Advantage model line. Seldom does a 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 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. The 27 X-Flight model is 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.
