I haven't, but that's a pretty big boat to have a single. I know some other manufacturers do it, but this thing has a lot of weight with it (many of the other manufacturers have little to no cabin... this thing looks like it is carrying a lot of weight in its nose).

A 29 foot boat should have no problem at all with that power. Looks like a good deal. The only concern I would have is the drive. Then again.. it looks as though that drive may have been upgraded!

Ha... You can't go against the boss... I understand that one! I've never been a big fan of that layout, but that's just a matter of preference and if that's what gets you the go-ahead, run with it!

It's a damn nice lookin' boat, that's for sure...

They only weigh about 4500#. Definately not considered heavy.

I've never heard of Wizzard. It's a not a bad looking boat but considering that it's really an off brand I wouldn't pay anywhere near $55k for it. The fact that it has the least popular Merc engine of the last 10 years, I'd take off more. The fact that this least popular Merc engine has been modified to put out 700 hp, take off more.

In this economy I wouldn't pay anything over $40k for that boat and that is only after I had a good engine man go thru that modified 575 to make sure it checked out.

Times are tough out there, no reason to pay up for off-brand boats with modified engines.

I believe the 575SCi was 600 at the crank and 575 at the prop.

Magic has a good rep out West, get it surveyed to ensure it's OK, and if it fits yer budget...
