Saber builds the same design? RBR will also build one? How come people don't pony up on their doorsteps for one? Wouldn't modern materials and techniques build a better boat? I find it hard to believe that the legendary Apache "Attention to detail" can't be found anywhere else.

Oh yeah, I'm going there...
A) yes, no, sort of

B)there is a sucker born every......

C) my 911 turbo is better than a 73 911 RS... but which costs more?

D)ALL of the above

I think they are so expensive because the replacement cost for a boat like that is just insane. The price for a new 46'+ Outerlimits or Cig with triple 1000's and dry 6's has got to be seven figures these days.

Plus the old Apaches still look good in this day and age. Granted I have a biased opinion

Yep, I nominate Warparth or Team Apache as the greatest. Glad to see that Warpath is still in it's original paint.

That is one hell of a Offshore Powerboat!
Here is a pic of a Mercruiser Daytona crashbox.

True. Now that's what I call depreciation. Its scary sometimes how much the value of these high end boats fall after only a few years.

Thats why we rebuilt our 16 year old 41 Apache this year. Going to run it another 15 years and then we'll have a classic What the heck, the Kevlar is good for about 50 years or so.
