Question NorTech 47 Cat "Ballistic"

Ive noticed this Cat's been for sale for such a longgg time now..... I remember reading about it several years ago,, when the article said the TAOD paint was over 125K...

Now I notice performanceBrokerage has it for sale for just 199K w/o power...... any reason why its not sold? anyone know if the paint is still in showroom like condition.... Its always been a fav of mine.....

Its. 249k .paint stilll in decent shape. Interior is showing wear.boat never performed well.it would need huge power to run. By the time you rigged and powered you will have nearly 400k in the project

A pair of Merc 1300's and #6 drives would be a sweet set up

Although the original power did not live up to its potential, it performed very well with reasonable power. 150s w 1075's

whenever someone throws out "it didn't perform well" I always assume it was the way the boat was rigged and not so much the boat itself... no disrespect meant Nor-tech is at the top of my list when I decide to move up hope you make the 200 here on may 7th!!!

I thought the paint was still in great shape, all it needs is some Merc power and your set. Interior could be updated, but not bad in any respects. The boat is huge and the detail in the artwork is remarkable. Just my .02s

Agreed. Sick boat with the retractable top and nothing else out there like it, that's for sure. The thing is a monster in size.

I have not been down there in a while, but the boat was on a rack at Legendary here in Destin. It was it on the top rack so it was rather high up, but to me the botttom "appeared" to be rather rough looking.
