There's a vintage Sutphen on a storage rack in Key Largo at Pilot House Marina . . . SSM drives and purple/orange paint if memory serves. Looked like a 33' as it had the large, boxy engine hatches. Just saw it last Sunday, but my memory is failing me as to the name on the hullside.

Crash,

That looks like a 30'. Is it for sale by a guy named Frank, in Miami? Pair of 496 BBC strokers and Bravos? If so, I know the owner, I had my shop build the engines that are in it for my 35' Cigarette, but never had a chance to use them, and sold them to Frank with 0 hours. They dyno'd just around 600HP/600TQ. Best of the best with reliability.

The boat in Key Largo was definitely a 33', it had the squared engine hatch/transom.

If Frank's boat doesn't sell soon, I might make him an offer! Get to hear and play with "my" engines somehow, sooner or later!

Sooooo the boat in Key Largo is an X Racer with 600 ++ Cu.In. blower motors and 3A drives hanging off the back......
The guy at the Pilot House Marina is leaning towards 39' as to the size (He's Not Sure) !!!??? The current name is "Scoundrel" (sp?) LOL .
