As already stated, I dont think a straight hull gun is worth 100k, except maybe that 90mph edition in the classifieds. I would think a super clean straight hull that needs nothing, 2000 model year, with the newer style interior, would bring in somewhere in the 80's, maybe even low 90's. I would agree on your thoughts, to move on and wait for something that is clean and needs nothing. If venturing into the TS market, it looks like the 575 powered TS guns, are more reasonably priced than the 525 boats too. Good luck with your search either way.

Does anyone know anything about the 1995 Straight Bottom that is listed for sale in the offshoreonly classifieds. https://www.offshoreonly.com/classif...un-o78771.html The paint job is super dated, but it seems clean, and has rebuilt motors with only 20 hours and the drives were just serviced. The $95k is steep even with the rebuilds - anyone know the boat? The other interesting option could be the boat offered by Sun Coast in Sarasota. https://www.boats.com/power-boats/20...p-gun-7472170/ They are looking for 127k and the boat looks clean; but the 575sci's have 320 hours on them so rebuilds are necessary it would seem.

i think the first boat is cool. I actually like the paint...no worse than the second boat. 95k is crazy expensive for a flat bottom tho. given the second one needs work 127k is not a deal either. Id keep looking.

LOL I think the paint on the straight bottom is so bad and 90s that it could be fun! If the boat was in the $75 to $80 neighborhood it would be a consideration but at 95 its no go. The other at 127k with rebuilds on the horizon starts to get up there money wise .

If your interested in that twin step I would talk to Chris at Ocean Performance. I believe he did work on the motors and would be able to provide information.

VortechSS owned the 95 before the current owner, might check with him.
