My bet is you will be taken seriously, providing they know you have the money. A letter of credit or proof of liquidity would get you in the door even with a seemingly low-ball offer.
yes, a few friends bought several of these boats and have subsequently re-sold them.

If you have the dough, you're good to go!

That looks like an exhaust clamp on top of the starboard air cleaner no?

Talked to a broker of the boat over the summer. While the boat may be fast and accomodating it was not built real well. Bulkhead flex due to lack of reinforcement and just not an overall good fit and finish.

What a shame to see these boats gutted, or partly dismantled.
