Hustler Powerboats ( took an affordable approach to performance at the Miami show with two Checkmate models, a Talon 25-foot catamaran and a Hustler 29 Rockit MC. The Checkmates ( included a 2400 BRX with a single Mercury Verado 300 outboard and a 2600 Convincor powered by a 430 hp MerCruiser 8.2 Mag HO engine.

The eye-catching yellow, orange and red 25 Talon had a pair of 300 hp Mercury Racing OptiMax 300XSs clamped to the transom. It was equipped with carbon-fiber dash panels, a Mercury Racing VesselView 4 display, and facing seats below the aft hatch. For maximum versatility, the first 29 Rockit MC is a 29-foot-long midcabin bowrider with a Mercury Racing 540 engine under the hatch.

Hustler also had two large boats in the water available for demo rides at the show: a 41 Razor with twin Mercury Racing HP700 SCi engines and a 388 Reloaded powered by twin Mercury Racing 565s. The original 388 Slingshot was designed for Mercury Racing’s HP 500s.

The Talon 25 got plenty of attention, and with twin 300 hp outboards, it should hit triple digits.Hustler Powerboats
