WOW!! $12,500 for one unrigged? that seems like a heck of a deal!!!
A while ago there was someone here on the board that was asking everyone if they would be interested in a deal like this but I thought he was talking more money!! I bet if more people on this board knew about this boat and the price, acouple of them would get sold!!

Now, where's my coin dish? It's time to cash it in!!

Chris, where are they building them? With a 305 area code, I take it it is near Miami. I would like to look at one.

Cuda,
They are near Miami. I almost bought one, but I decided to spend a little more $$$ and buy Thunder. They are nice boats, not much of a cabin, but good rough water performers.

A friend of mine had an Avenger built a couple of years ago. He sold it the day he received the boat; was not satisfied with the quality. It is still for sale locally. For a pleasure boat probably ok, but when you look at this one the hull is very wavey and the quality leaves a lot to be desired. I don't know if this one was a mistake, or if the company has increased their QC since then.

As for the Martini, they were built pretty well. The 27 is a nice ride. Since it has several years on it you will need to check for rot in the stringers and transom pretty diligently.

Hey Kent..... is that the one sittin gat the boat place at I-4 & michigan...? i looked at it... it was a little rough around the edges.. meaning just as you said QC from the factory migh thave been an issue...not really sure though..also 26' with stock sbc .. a little under powered.... i think it is a 95- 96 model.. it was certainly a bare bones boat...

I was wondering about the quality, that's why I wanted to look at one. Like they say, you get what you pay for.

Nasty Habit -

Yes, that is the one. I think it is actually a 99 model (maybe 98). I remember looking at the DIN. They have had it for a long time. I think they are at around 35K with 350 mag and Bravo setup.
