i haven't bought it. Still trying to decide what to do with my Scarab. I really like the way that boat feels when your seated in the drivers seat, It feels like its meant to be driven.

It should have drop down bolsters... Standing up while driving feels very cool.... specially when the BBlocks are synched...... I know where a 300 condurre is.... needs everything though...

Ive had this boat since brand new in '90. It is gorgeous, 21 years old, and the gel coat is INCREDIBLE. Never had any problems. Its got a 454 mag with bravo 1. Just bought CMI e-top headers, and bone stock, goes about 66mph. Looking to get about 75 out of it for now. There is nothing like the quality of this boat. It is absolutely incredible.

Default Trying to buy a 269 currently!

I will post pics if I get the deal put together. My wife thinks I'm nuts but I wanted something that we could go on LOTO on the weekends and not get beat up too bad. I know the 300 would be better for rough but, I don't want to feed to big blocks. etc. more later.

Are you looking at the 269 Condurre that's for sale at a LOTO broker? If so, it looks clean and a good price too. Good Luck!

Default Actually no

I'm looking at one at the Cobalt dealer. I like both of them but my wife liked the one at the other dealer. So I am just a few days away from getting it. The other Condurre is a nice boat as well. I looked at it ,, the outside anyway and it has had the alpha's replaced with SE106 drives and is currently needing a gimbal bearing and U-Joints on one drive. Its in pretty darn good shape and they seem willing to take care of everything mechanically for the new buyer. I would have probably went for it but my wife liked the other one better.

Glad to hear it. Didn't realize that Village had one too. Post some photos when you get a chance.

Just a little more info on the Condurre 269 and 300,
they both used the hull from the Carrera 30 by Humbertor Picon,
the 300 was pretty much exactly the same as the Carrera SS9M
using the same hull and deck except much more plush inside espcially the cabin, the 269 is the same hull as the Carrera SS8M which itself is a shortened 30ft Carrera
but Cobalt used the raised deck of the 30ft instead of the flat deck Carrera used for the shorter version , the 269/SS8M hull is the 30ft hull with a 3 ft plug in the mold .

I have the SS8M
http://damncarrera.com/SS8Msig.JPG
same boat as the 269 but with a flat deck which as the title states is actually 26.9 which is were Condurre got the name for thier version . According to Carrera the hull is actually a 25deg V not 26 . The hull still lives on in the current day Carrera sportfishing center console 27 and 30ft models.
Almost all 27 Carreras like the 269s were built with twin small blocks only a handful were single big blocks. I have one of those, with a mild 509" making around 500hp and a Bravo drive it runs a best so far of 69.4
According to Carrera with twin souped up Tempest 350 small blocks they had a 27 running just over 80mph. Hairy ride though..
Anyways just thought I would give you a bit more info on your boat.
