Asking 6 mil and 1.2 mil for inventory and then 3.6 mil for land - LMAO prob like 160 K would be more inline and that sounds like too much - not saying the brand was bad but when was the time they sold anything 10 years ago ? and the inventory is how old ? and the shape of it all ?

The price is outrageous and I don't feel there's a huge market for them anymore. Most people buying a new boat can also afford a hotel so the large cabin is not as appealing. The big cockpit might be an alternative to the CC though.

Cool boats really especially if they were updated

To bad they got screwed by their investor a little while ago when they were camapanigning "back in black". I heard they were updating the boats, new helm, etc. Focusing the 43 as more of a 100+mph Poker run and the 46 as a condo.

The CC market is too saturated but is an option if they start back up....Funny since they derrivved from a midnight express

I personally think Black Thunders, updated, would be a perfect compliment to merge with the powerquest line, which recently got a new owner, and stops at 38'.

Ha... Heard that before. Why not use the 46 that's ready for rigging or rig the 43 flat deck and re~stamp it a 2018 model? What about the 16 46's that are pre-sold to Honduras?

That you posting John York?

I like the PQ / BT combo. We bought at 380 because of the cabin room and the ride. Also couldn't afford a 43 BT. That could be an exciting marriage

Default No boats for sale

i don't see any 46 EC up for sale. I just did total rebuilds on my 500s. Boat was running good but with 500 hours I wanted to freshen up. I'm thinking of holding on to mine for another 5 years or so.

If BT stays shutdown, what are your thoughts on used boat values? I know outboards are the current thing, but o would think the combination of the uniqueness of the BTs and scarcity should make them hold value

thoughts?
