That helps thanks. Not sure what they actually trade at though.... Anyone know what sales price? $125K?

I personally have only seen 2 Top Gun Straight Bottoms in the past 4 years sell for more then 95K. When everything was said and done.

^^^Yup, that was my thinking. I've also seen some really nice guns (SSM 6s, well maintained, nice power, 90mph, etc) Go up and not sell for a fair price on those units. It's a really tough sell when you get into the stratosphere on resto mod Guns.

Been their, done that. No return on the money invested. I got a decent number at the time Low $80's. And that was almost 6 years ago, and everything had been touched/massaged in some fashion.

One of the problems now facing older restored boats is financing for some. Most ....not saying all don't have a large amount of cash for the boat and need some help. Newer boats are easier to finance. Not to mention older boats tend to need some additional maintenance.

Except for 4 Straight Bottom Special Order Top Guns that were built in the 2000's. All of them are AT LEAST.....19 years Old.

150k is getting pretty deep into a TS gun

It's something that comes up here every 6 months.

Iíd pay up to 80k for a Straight Bottom of this caliber. Itís still a Bravo Boat and Older Style 525s rebuilt. I restore Autos as a hobby at a very high level. bottom line you better restore the right auto to the right specs if you want your money out of it. I love watching the auctions and watching what some of these high dollar restos sell for. 100k builds selling for 25-30k. We all know what it takes financially to build toys like this and we do it because we love it not because we are trying to make a profit otherwise id flip boats:) And it would not be Cigarettes😁

Phil, if you're reading this, no need for referral fee if he buys it. How about just smiling a little from time to time... or, just once would be a good start!!!! LOL🤓
