Too bad the beam is so wide...makes it hard to trailer it legally w/o getting permits.
The boat will be kept on a lift behind the house. I luckily will not have to deal with towing the boat and will not be buying a trailer for it. This could get me in trouble again if a hurricane heads our way again and I need to pull the boat out.

sounds like you were quoted a decent price !!!

Twin 496 Mag MPI Bravo 1 375 php (280 PkW) $229,244
Twin 496 Mag HO Bravo 1 X 425 php (317 PkW) $242,289
Twin 496 Mag HO Bravo 1 XR 425 php (317 PkW) $249,311
Twin 525 HP EFI Bravo 1 XR 500 php (373 PkW) $309,260
Twin 600 SCi Bravo One XR 575 php $345,739
Those are all retail. I do not know how it works up there in the north east but on the boats I have bought down here in Florida I have gotten anywhere from 26%-to a best of 34% off retail pricing(on a Fountain).

Check out the Baja 405 also. Probably not the quality leader like the Cobalt, but still a very nice cockpit. I was very impressed when I went through it in Miami. I think show price was about $230K with 496s...

CheckmateF1 here on OSO is a Merc mechanic, and has worked on a few, including a 575SC boat. Shoot him a PM and he can share some info.

I have not seen one in person. I checked it out on the web and it looked pretty nice.
