that boat belongs to a guy i know he doesnt use it much and only on lake erie he had talked about taking it to a barret jackson auction but i think some of the barrett rules might have scared him off

Tough time to try and get $125k out of a 25+ yr old boat, but I wish him good luck! This was really the beginning of the offshore boat popularity, and the show certainly lit me up on having one!

I don't think 125K is out of line for that boat. That boat is a piece of TV and boating history. The fact that it is documented and updated is cool. Just need to get Don Johnson to autograph the dash some time.
Want your ECU tuned right?? Call Mark at Precision

Default Same Boat

Page 5 of 9 has a picture taken the very same day at the Casino. Wish that heat was back. Ohio sucks this time of year for boating. Flew over the islands yesterday. 4 boats at middlebass and two on the lake. None at Kellys. Spring launch just over 4 months away!!!!!!!.

This is my old Miami Vice running Pier 33 Poker run in the 90's


Boat was sold for around $50,000 back in 1998 and it was in great condition back then

Even with the Original Pedigree i think $125,000 is a bit much The market for vintage offshore boats does not hold like a car even if it was used on the show With that said a good deal is a state of mind so if it is something somone realy wants they may pay what is asked for it

I would love to have my old boat back but would not pay a ton of money to Re Own it

This is just a quick short video of the boat running without all the music and the shots from the cockpit

Boatme, Was that the year the Fog set in and noone made it past the first card? Believe it was 96 maybe 97 We were stuck in sausagetuck overnight! Bummed a bartenders car to drive back to St.Joe for the truck and trailer. Long night mud ramp to load the boat. Ah Good times! Rich
