Default Looking for a Gladiator!

Hi All, we're looking for a gladiator for the next boat, preferably a staggered 525 boat! Please let me know if you have any leads on any listed or soon to be available boats!

Thanks,
Derek

So were we! Even when I see one now I am like DAMN! We looked on and off for a year for one. Kick myself for not buying the Team Virgin Boat still. Made a few plays on a few but hard to come by. Usually word of mouth. There are a few that might be for sale soon but ZUL's and others. Not a lot of factory 525 stags laying around from what I know. The one that is in FL that's been for sale forever and a moon I have heard a few stories about....mostly the "usual gladiator" stories but the price is pretty crazy IMO. Good luck!!!!

I would not balk at a Zul Gladiator! Zul builds a bullet proof motor that rivals a stock 525 all day long for reliability rom what I've seen AND offers more HP. Plus I think all Zul glads are built by Phil. Not to mention if you have the means, Zul may even drag his happy butt out of his siesta and refresh his motors

Thank you! We're just starting the process of looking now, nothing is imminent, but just want to get a feel for whats out there. We've considered the florida boat, and agree, given its history its a little pricey.

With the 20? On Friday I picked it up in Scotia from a little bit of work and took it up to the lake! The weather was certainly against me....

Thanks Tank, not balking by at Zul Glads by any means, we just have some ideas! That said, just trying to get a feel for whats out there and do a little due diligence.

There's a 2003 w/ Stag 525's for sale in NY. It has a padded engine hatch with no scoops. There aren't many for sale right now. A few got snatched up this past year.
