Sunsation In Paradise

A Wise Decision

Highlighted in a story a few months back, the first Diamond Edition 34 CCX from Sunsation Boats is now in the hands of Tennessee performance boater and avid fisherman Alan Wise, who seems overjoyed with his first boat from the Algonac, Mich.-based company.

“This new Sunsation 34 CCX is phenomenal—I love it,” said Wise, who hauled the boat back to Tennessee after spending a day running it at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri a couple of weeks after the factory demo model powered by triple Mercury Racing Verado 400R engines clocked a 88-mph run on the one-mile Lake of the Ozarks Shootout course. “I’ve used the boat quite a bit. I’ve run it on our local lake, Old Hickory, and I’ve also taken it to Brunswick, Ga., to do a little ocean fishing with some friends. I’m looking forward to taking it to Delaware to do some ocean fishing in the Northeast area.”

Before that though, Wise is going to be using the boat in next month’s Florida Powerboat Club Key West Poker Run with Sunsation’s Jared Morris and Joe Schaldenbrand. That was part of the deal, according to Morris, when Wise purchased the boat from Performance Boat Center’s Jason Taylor, who took great care of Wise when he stayed in one of the cabins on the Redhead Yacht Club property. Thanks to its exceptional Kustom Kolors paint job, a newly designed aerodynamic fiberglass hardtop and the premium Waves and Wheels interior and audio package (and the matching SeaDek flooring), the boat is a Sunsation showpiece, which is why it will be on display and available for pre-qualified demo rides in Key West.
