I saw this one at a poker run this spring. I think they are georgeous boats. They are very distinctive. I like things that are a little different.


I saw it for sale on boat trader earlier this year. It seems it was like $125k or something.

Pretty lady with her pretty boat.

As Sean said, Revolutions were bigger news in Europe than in the U.S. As I always say, performance boaters are a stubborn, conservative bunch. And the Revolution does look different. I personally love it. You can actually see that a bit of design research went into things that are above waterline. However, resale will be a problem and this is why it's so much boat for the money. In terms of handling, I only ever got one ride in a Revolution. I cannot say it behaved badly but that one was mildly powered with triple 502s. However, it was slow and I had the impression that it would take a lot of power to really get it moving. So if you wanna go fast with your Revolution, you're likely to run into problems associated with heavy boats running big power triples: motors are frying everything in the engine compartment, including each other, it's gonna be chewing drives like they're out of fashion and expect some big gas bills.

At that point, you might as well be cool and get an Apache 47

Not to mention there were problems with bulkheads on these boats. Get a gun.

I believe that Todd has sold his Revolution. He stated a while back it was heading to Italy and it's not at his shop any longer.

Yep, and most true Cig people know this so the market to resell it to gets even smaller.

I personally love the design of the REVOLUTION. Be aware there were some problems with the early models but they were worked out. They seem to be holding their value in the 125k-155k range. TNT just sold a red side by side with 900's and 6's they had it for some time. You just have to find the right [email protected]# for the seat

Like Sean, I know this boat very well. I have pulled the cover many times during my internship at DSM (That means nobody gets paid...the sarcasm never stops).
Anyhow, the boat shows very well and I believe Gill is still the current owner. $100K is is nice number on this boat, although as already stated, resale might take awhile at any price.
Best of luck!
