    Hi All,

    My friend is thinking of buying a 1995 65 Feet JOHNSON HIGH TECH Euro.

    The boat is in a very good condition and offers lots of space.

    What do you think about those MAN 2842 LZE engines?

    I am also looking for feedback good and bad
    necessary improvements

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have any experience with the 65 but I ve been running a 2002 70 which is really just an updated version

    Well built, solid glass not cored, great layout (bill Dixon design) easy to maintain. Incredible aft deck. The one i run has a swim platform extension, about 8' deep!

    On the down side low freeboard forward ( I ve stuffed the pulpit a few times) and when you hit head seas you realize that the huge VIP stateroom at the bow comes at a price...

    The one I run has 3412 cats rated at 1400 and while it makes things a bit tight in the ER it cruises at 20 to 23 kts without breaking a sweat, top speed is just under 30kts. Personally i prefer to stay away from Mans.. Did the 3000 hr service 2 month ago on the cats for about $5k or so, painless compared to the Mans

    Good boat, obviously not a hatteras but unfortunately at some point in ghe 90s Hatteras forgot that aft decks and swim platforms were where most people spent the most time on a boat...
