This boat was brand new and Powerboat tested in Key West in November, 2005, by John Tomlison and Bob Teague. Ran 117 mph. The test article then came out and was on the cover of Powerboat a few months later. It was the first 6 bolster 47 I had seen. Very nice set up. Do you know how many hours are on the boat now? I've seen it listed at LCM since it was new.

I have always liked that boat from the first time we saw it at lake cum. when we were looking for a boat for the
Bentons
Insurance I think I could deal with, $50,000 for refresh every 100 hours, no way. That is one nice a$$ boat though!!!

I've seen listed weights between 13-16k for that boat. The trailer might weigh 5k or more. So at least an F450, Dodge 4500, F650, FL P2 etc to tow it.
