Although an older boat, good boat reputation, with #6s (aren't they quite expensive even used) then add custom engines. The engine hours not listed, but that price still seems quite low especially if the price is flexible. Is there something wrong with this picture?

Looks like a damn nice boat to me. Paul Pfaff 598's making 750 hp should be pretty solid motors, and number 6 drives to boot for less then 70k.

This is just another example of how down the used boat market is today. If someone has the cash, it's a great time to buy used.

Those motors may be better than you think. Pfaff has been using 'stress-relief shaking' of all parts for over twenty years and it wouldn't surprise me if they did that to these ones.

If you get serious about buying it call Pfaff and ask them. Gotta love the old school fuelie stacks too!


[One other thing-the drives might be wet sumps...wouldn't hurt to ask.]

16 months ago you could have doubled the price and sold it quick!! To much hardware to carry a high price in a eliminator..

Good grief- that is a helluva deal. And we're not even to November.

That boat has been for sale for a long time. I think it was listed around 90-100k last year.

Strange fuel injection system. Almost looks like the Mercury Racing class one system from the early 80's.

Max speed listed is 98...does that seem right with 750s?
