just an observation....

me thinks it didnt sell cause a tired stripped boat at 275k is pricey... and with new motors drives and a complete makeover asking now 325k(priced right) makes the original ask look even more silly


again just an observation

Same observation could be made about an 09 NT 3600 done in two tone purple and is now redone in blue/silver/black and is 100K less!

Shogren is a realist, he sells more boats than anyone right now and will repaint a boat to make it more appealing to a bigger group of buyers (Canada Thrust, XXX etc). Smart guy!

Mike Fiore built the boat for the kilo record, which it held for a few months until Reggie beat it. I think it was in the high 160's w/1500 Sterlings. He then re-rigged the boat with 1075's and sold it to Jim W. Jim has had 3 OL's and then went to the NT 44 cat. Boat was notorious for breaking down at Poker Runs towards the end of its life. Stupid stuff would break on those 1075's.

Boat is big and very cool looking with the canopy but it can be a turn off for some buyers due to blind spots/lack of rub rail. Boat can be a workout around the docks in tight areas.

For the money I would rather have the usability of a 46 Cig/46 OL than a canopy OL that goes 10 mph faster.

Canopied boats are tough to use as pleasure boats. Just ask SV52. Very cool looking, but not practical just to cruise around with.
