AFAIK, nobody is loaning on triple engine boats, so any buyer will have to just throw down the cash. That certainly thins the heard of potential buyers.

I can imagine going years between finding someone, especially now when anyone with cash knows how hard it is to come by: if your company gets a cash flow hit, it aint gonna come from credit.

That boat has been sitting at J&J's for years...when it came in it was really rough.Repo, Check if all the salt water was removed from the cabin, haha,best to stay clear of that boat and dealer...mismatched drives,the list goes on n on....there are a few other,much nicer boats out there without horror stories...I got a friend/client Dan P. 703.303.2218 he has a really nice 47' no issues....good luck!

I guess I do have some limits.

The economy is pretty bad right now, but it has not effected the reduction of price on the new ones enough for me.
Or buy an 07 700 boat with no hours for 250K.........If you buy any Fountain new for 650K you better get a waterfront home to go with it!
