No disrespect, but buying that boat is the cheapest part, maintaing it will be the killer. A lot of maintence compared to new ones. At that price it is a steal...

I've said it before, the boat is one of the coolest Apache's ever built, it is the only 45' factory built Apache, and I've been on it, it is a wave-crusher.

Someone's going to snap it up at some point. With the engine's it has and the #6 drives, the boat is just about priced at the drivetrain cost.

The mortgage crisis can't be helping your cause...

Hopefully you meet up with someone soon that can write you a check. Good luck with the sale, great looking boat!

Hot Duck- have you thought of bringing it to the Miami show and showing it for sale? It's a VERY impressive boat. It will definately get alot of attention.

See if you can "squeeze" in some builders dockspace and have it in the water. (I realize I use the word "squeeze" very lightly since it is a Huge machine )

The market on that boat is pretty much irrelevant, as with most redone older boats. The people that are spending $150k are buying new Baja's or similar with 525's, full factory warranty's, and financing them for 20 years in many cases. If some of these folks so much as dinged a #6 prop, much less had a major failure on your boat, the boat would likely sit. The remaining people with real cash can afford a newer boat of similar size.

The boat is hot! Someone wants it and will buy it.

You probably can't since there are manufacturers that have trouble getting space in that show. You could have a chance with a broker who has in water space reserved already.

Being how rare that boat is I would think anyone in the market would know the market and realize that it is a turn key package for 150K whereas some people think a 47 hull is worth 125K. I also think the towability might be an issue for most.
