From Hustler Boats History:

The Hustler 388 Slingshot carries Hustler's famed attention to detail and quality of manufacturing by incorporating State-of- the- art construction materials, vacuum bagging with High-tech, hybrid fabrics such as Kevlar and carbon fiber and vinylester resins in the hull construction. The 388 Slingshot was the sleekest, fastest, most technologically advanced boat to emerge from the boating industry in 20 years. The final design was the result of hundreds of test runs with subtle changes to the bottom. The final result was speeds in excess of 90 MPH with twin Mercury 500's and Bravo drives, incredible cornering ability and a rough-water ride better than anything in its class!

This 1997 Hustler 388 Slingshot is in excellent condition! She has been lightly used ever since the lake that the owner lives on imposed a 45MPH speed limit! This boat has been meticulously maintained since current owner purchased her in 2001. At time of purchase, although the engines only had 80 hours on them, the current owner had the 502s' completely rebuilt because they had been used in saltwater. Since that time the boat has been used exclusively 100% in freshwater only! When not in use the boat and trailer are stored in a climate controlled facility! She is ready for many hours of high speed- high performance action on the water. She is designed to handle rough seas that other so called high performance boats cannot! Hook up the triple axle trailer and take her to all of your favorite spots! Service records available! PLEASE BRING REASONABLE OFFERS!
