Default Why hasn't this boat sold?

http://www.offshoreonlyclassifieds.c...o16561-en.htmlI am really intrested in this boat but is the resale that bad on this type of setup? What am i overlooking? I want to call and inquire about it but what do you guy's think. Does anyone know who it belonged to?

3 days ago it was priced at $59,995 ... price just dropped $10K. Looks like they want to move it. What's the issue with 'this type of set up'??? If you like the boat, want the boat, line up a survey (ASAP at that price ) and make a legit offer. For that price any changes can be made to front bolster config if you or your next owner does not want it.

While it might be the perfect boat for a lot of OSO members to joe blow it has a lot of drawbacks. Blower motor, cockpit config, no graphics, etc. If its what you want, go after it. Just be aware it might take a while to move when you go to sell it unless you find the right buyer.

That is a great deal but if you buy it plan on keeping it as it would be hard to sell with that cockpit set up. That boat has been on the market for years. It seems like Pier 57 or someone had it listed forever and couldn't sell it.

That is definitely an awesome price if it fits your boating needs

Gee... let's see...

No cabin, no sun deck, no swim platform, no stereo...

Sorry... just my two-cents... (you asked)

I thought it was the same one that was at Pier 57 but the ad says its a 2003 and I remember seeing that Pantera there in 2002 and it was used then. Plus I think the one at Pier 57 had 3 across seating but I could be wrong on that.

But i'm sure you could still get you "yours" on this thing.

btw, the price drop to under 50 was back on 6-21, so its still not flying off the shelf.
I've heard thru the grapevine, there is a seller of a 28twin, wanting this, once his gets sold.

1/2 cabin would cost 5-6k.
Could pull the bolsters out for a sitdown config.
And watch your bravo there sweetie!

OH YEA... if i didn't have a wife or family, this boat wouldn't be for sale.
