Default Anyone know this bird!?!?!?!

So I've been back and forth on this boat for quite some time. Talked to the broker a few times and I'm still not sure. I was curious has anyone seen this boat in person or know this boat? Would save me a trip if its not worth it. If I were to pursue it farther I would look into going the whole survey route. Before any of that though I was curious if anyone had some insight on it. Thanks everyone

Not trying to stir the pot but I wouldnt buy a go-fast that sits in the water all the time like that... no pics of drives or bottom of the hull. Thats a BIG red flag for me.

I have seen that boat sitting in the water at that marina. The broker is good my father in law used them to sell two boats. The boat is probably on blocks at that marina and I bet the broker will go take more pics if you ask.

So at this time its in the brokers court. I reached out to him and waiting for his response. Hopefully it'll be possible to do most everything virtual and when I'm at the final stages I could go there for the final steps of purchase if it gets to that point.

Smoke, if this is the boat you want, then make some calls to your local trailer dealers or any of the big dog trailer manufacturers and figure a plan for getting yourself a nice trailer. If you do not need a trailer then just hire a reputable transport company to bring your boat home. The trailer is the easy part just due your diligence finding the right trailer without over paying for it. The trailer is just a means to move the boat safely.

I keep my boat in dry rack storage so the trailer isint a must for me. Until we wanna go on a trip and wanna travel and take it somewhere. So today I donít need a trailer but at some point itís in my future. I never looked at bots before with out a trailer but I was also pulling back and forth to the lake. Never considered one without a trailer before. I know I would want one but do I get a custom built brand new one that will just sit or do I try to find something used and let it sit. I know itís my call to make. Just gotta do the research.
