i would guess maybe 90 ish mph. 800 ish will run 83-84 with bravos

I have been on the boat going 85-90 with plenty of throttle left . 107 or not, the motors, drives, and gimbals gotta be worth the asking price alone.

That boat was wrecked on the bow. I remember seeing it on a salvage boat site. It didn't look that bad, but it was crunched on one side of the bow, somewhat high

I know the current owner bought it from an ins co. I was told the boat was apart, motor and drives out, the previous owner tried to commit insurance fraud, my buddy bought it 100% complete. He then freshened everything over the next year. The title is not salvage.

I seen the boat when the new owner bought it. It had minor damage in the front . The motors, drives and trannys have all been rebuild with no expenses spared. boat looks like new.

I think it'll run into the triple digits if the setup is right. There's a couple of 35OL's running near 105 with 700's weighing 8100lbs. IMO the 35OL's run because of the big notch in the transom putting the wheels back in much cleaner water. The 40 weighs under 9500 in a twin engine config. With 1800 ponies and those 6's putting the wheels out where they need to be I think it'll run. I know we'd all be skeptical since the 05 Spotlight PR 40 was a big disappointment as it struggled to get out of the high 80's with 850sci's and 6's. I don't remember what the Split Desision PR 40 OL ran but I can find out, but I believe the 40 is sure capable beyond the century mark with big power and the perfect setup.

It's a pretty piece, I'd love to be driving to pick it up right now. Good luck

The motors were stroked to 572 during the last refresh. They dynoed 1068 I believe on pump gas. So it's a little better than 900.
