I'm with you man. I think it's a sharp, clean boat at a fair price.

I'd defy anyone to find a Cafe in equal condition for 54.

Just to clarify, it is a 31' Bullet.

Good looking boat, it does look like he's made some improvements since my buddy last owned it. Probably would want to add some external steering at those speeds.

Buyer's gonna have to have the cash, tough to get a loan on an 18 year old boat. Maybe that's the problem?

The paint on mine was done by the same painter (Vincent Custom Paint) and still looks very good 6 years later.

Oh, I know.....someone else above said that the asking price was approaching the price of a comparable Cafe. I say nope.

Asking price 53.9 .... I bet he would take 45 ... But I'm all for an 18 year old boat bringing good money ...

I wouldn't bet on the 45K.......but 50K would still be a heck of a deal IMHO.

Here's one, 4 years newer for six grand more, which to me is a better value.
