Default 2003 hustler Talon 377 KE Limited Edition

I saw this boat and found out it is about an hour from where I live. I talked to the guy and he agreed to let me come and check it out - even though I cannot afford it. Isn't this boat worth a lot more, like about $180K? He told me it has no rub rail because it was made from one mold, not two halfs put together. It has two 900 HP SC EFI motors too. Wicked boat. He said the tattle tale GPS shows the higest speed of 161 MPH.... With huge 36 pitch 5 blade cleaver props... He said it is a little hard to get off the line, but once it hits plane speed it shoots up and takes off. Looking forward to seeing such a high performance boat.

i'm sure he will take you for a long ride and you should definitely insist that you drive it even if you aren't serious.

I doubt it will see 161mph with 900hp considering it took twin 1300's to push the same boat into the low 160's. They are a big boat and not a true tunnel.

Like another said, it is not one mold. It is called a "capped" boat. Instead of the rub rail, they bond the hull and deck together with more fiberglass, sand, smooth and paint.
