Well, here is my take, there have been boats with trips for years with no drive issues. these aren't overpowered or over torqued so the motors and drives should live fine. saw the same with a guys 46 cig and trips, even though it wasn't desired, the boat was fine and ran great.
In my opinion everything is fine, with the exception of the economy. to me any outerlimits is custom for the original owner, thats the hardest bridge to cross.

Anyone know what the market is like for a used 51'? Any advice is appreciated;

When was this boat built? Did Merc offer the 850s and 1075s then? If so it's hard to believe he ordered it like it is.

The boat was built in 2005, and the customer chose this power over the 850's & 1075's. This is a great running boat and has been maintained with an open checkbook. The tripple 600's are a great packsge, the boat is still a 100 mph + boat, cruises well, great fuel economy, handels around the dock well, and eats the big water.

Exactly, thanks Animalhouse.

For the others....the owner of this boat was also the previous owner of "Saks" boat. You know, the one with the Gellners that everyone loved so much! When he had the boat it had stock575sci's and loved it...also no drive issues with that boat and it was something like 1500-2000 lbs heavier than this one which is Epoxy...

Some pictures from over the years in the following albums where we ran togther;http://www.lucidideefastboats.com/20...tanfunrun.html

Yep, have been on quite a few runs with this 51 and it is a awesome boat! The owner does maintain it with an open checkbook as stated before. I believe it has also won best looking boat before at some PRA events! You cant beat a 51 Outerlimits for room, speed, and ride.

There is a 2009 Cig 42X w/ 700's in Powerboat that has an asking price of $399K. For 400K or so, that would be the boat to have in that price range.

Id rather have the big 51. Dont get me wrong the 42X is a very nice boat. There's two that I boat with. Why is that Cig so cheap being an 09??

The ad says that the owner has ordered a new boat. It certainly seems priced to sell.
