You can buy that boat new for 250K! I wouldn't want a road rash boat for that price. Albert didn't get much use out of it so the hours have to be low.

Looks like he rear ended something pretty hard. I hope they upgraded the brakes to go with all that bling.

He also complained that the boat was not fast at the '05 Daytona PR. I heard it went back to the factory for some bottom work but I don't know if he ever ran it after that.

IMO $200,000+ is better spent elsewhere.

That boat's from Illinois, never seen it, or ever heard about it either. Cool lookin 42, too bad it was wrecked. Definately not worth $250, I would'nt give $200 either. Who knows what structural cracks will appear over the next 50 hours of use.
Real shame.

????????????????????

What, are you guys forgetting this is a Fountain.

You can drop a Fountain off a ten story building and not have structural cracks as long as it lands on the BECK. That is what it is there for, to add strength.

Come on now, this boat is PERFECT. It is actually a little faster even.

Take a look at this Fountain pictured. It is back on the water with new paint running 155 MPH!
