The boat did run 80 mph with 2 people/40 gallons of fuel and mid to upper forty's @ 3500 rpm turning lab finished 30p bravo's. I will be sure and look at fuel burn when I deliver this next week and pass on. Please send any questions my way at [email protected] Thanks.
Price?

I was just guessing. My 525's only showed 30GPH at WOT on the dyno so I was thinking 430HP shold be less.

The last two "leftover" 09 525 boats sold in Texas were asking about that so I could believe that is what they want for a 2012...

The Top Gun Open was 299K at the Lauderdale Show with 3 outboards (which are cheaper than a pair of big block sterndrive packages).

Those 3 year old boats are the same price as one that only goes 6-7mph slower?

Maybe not that bad? I'm just asking here. I have never shopped new bots, so I wouldnt know.

The 8.2HO BravoX package is about 28k. I didn't realize the Verado's were that cheap though.
