Lightning Bay Marine has the boat in inventory and it is a nice rig.

We pay a big premium just to afford the luxury of showing up at an event. Our boats are very expensive and we pay our sponsor fees to show/demo/ our boats at events. We all enjoy boating but some of us have to make a living at it.Let's face it boats are expensive,but the bottom line is,you get what you pay for!
What dealer are you? Where are you located?

Boat Dealers don't make as much as you think! Mark up on boats are usally not high at all to move the product. The 43 Starts low but when your done adding in what you want she can get up in price, remeber you can get the boat with twin 525s and upgrade from that point, I have a 43 thats going to be custom with 900EFI with Merc number 6 drives and you know she is not going to be a 300 or 400 k boat but she still will be a heck of a lot cheaper then many of your custom boats. She should be ready for the Atlantic City Boat Show.

I think the boat has nice lines. The redesigned dash, seats, sunpad with the vents on the side look awesome. The bottom has been proven over the last 2 years in racing, the weight seems to be down, speeds with trip 525's are excellent, 98 . The freeboard looks a little low, as does the cabin headroom, but I understand thats how this particular design was intended for, which compliments the sleek looks. I know Donzi makes the ZX/Daytona series if you want more headroom. The paint is a nice change, and overall I think they did a great job, cant wait to check it out at the show. Jeff

Amen brother, testify!

Looks like a neat setup...

Only issue is insurance on a triple is only passed by Cat insurance regarding costs and attainability.

GLH - How bad is insurance on a triple??
Just curious.

I would think the Maintenance alone on a third motor would kill me, but never really considered the insurance.
