Default Cobalt 343... decent price?

Does this seem like a good price for this boat?

And aren't those 600sc?
The ad doesn't mention the year, but it can't be more than a year old, right?

I saw this boat last week. It's at Ocean Performance in Old Saybrook, CT. It's a 2005 and it's perfect. The owner traded it in for a 39 Cigarette. I think it's the only one made with 600's

Give Todd a call at OP. he will treat you right.

Just a heads up on the 343 with supercharged motors. I was talking to Cobalt for about 4 months. I was in the process of ordering one with the new Merc 700s. They called me about a month ago and said they are not going to offer the boat with 700s or the 600s. Seems the supercharged motors in there have been overheating. Mercury racing wants them to add scoops to the engine hatch to allow more airflow. Cobalt said for the handfull of 343s they sell with the supercharged motors they are not going to change the engine hatch. I was sad because I loved the boat and was ready to order one. Just letting you know the info that I found out first hand. Mike

Interesting info. Ventiliation is very important, and some non-perf boat manufacturers don't get it right. This is not the 1st time I've heard this.
