Thread: Kachina Drone and 525 EFI

  1. #1
    Took the plunge today and bought a 30' 2005 Kachina Drone with the 525 EFI. Does anyone know about how fast it will go and how reliable it will be??

    Congrats on the purchase, Louie and the gang were great to deal with. I can't say what it will do, but I can tell you that my 26 did exactly what Louie said it would. 62mph right out of the box, only a 496HO, it may loosen up a bit with time. He made no exaggerations about performance and I liked that. The bottom part of that boat is a tried and true design from Kachina, the only really new part is the upper half, so whatever they told you is based on experiance I would say.

    How much are those boats? The Drone looks pretty cool. My guess on speed with a single would be low 60's? The Merc stuff should be reliable, don't know about the rest of the boat. How many do they sell a year, not much talk about them.

    I believe this will be the first mid- cabin Kachina Drone ever .
    Cost for this boat is $100,000 that included tax and registration , list was $74,900.
    I just spoke with Louie ; He says empty it should do 73 mph

    Cool lookin' boat, but I'm not too hip on the name (Drone don't sound too sporty to me). A buddy of mine has an '03 Shadow 30 with a 500EFI, he gets mid to upper 60's. Sweet boat!

    Is there not enough room to run twins? 30' is pushing it IMO for a 30' boat.

    That boat is so cool, they did the kachina name in melting ice across the top. here are some pics from the kachina website. I love that chrome outdrive. Louie makes about 80 boats a year, he also did the paint work on that Bourget (sp) boat , the red one with the burning 100 dollar bill. He has some awesome people working there.http://www.***
