I know of a guy that bought 2 boats from there. Both 30 something, an older Formula and a late 90's Fountain. Both had twins, not sure what he paid or the condition of them, but I know he still has both of them and haven't been used in at least 3 years now. I do know he got a great deal on both, just not sure what he paid. His wife was telling me and another guy about them when we were working in their house. I'm sure this didn't help you much, but it's all I got for ya.

and just to add, when you pay regular salary for people to work on those things, you more than often have more invested then what is is worth for resale, so wI don't buy anymore since 3 years except to have parts. not to rebuilt those vehicules anymore,,, for sure!!!!!

I have bought many from them. Good as they come! They are only available to purchase at auction when they have title's in hand. Know the rules, Really look the pictures over and all the info BEFORE bidding. If you have to personally inspect before bidding, then you are bidding too much. Remember they are salvage boats, assume the worst and then make your bid.

Thanks guys.. My buddy bought a boat from them and didnt think something was right when they wanted him to wire all the money. Most people want a deposit.
