Yes, they still make them. Just not the 41.

And they make a 24 with an eggbeater now too!

How many have they actually made of those two models? The site is pretty light on real world pictures.

there is also Saber Marine that I guess has molds of the 41....
41 Banshee
would be interesting to see their 44 center console based off the 41. you'd think given the hot trend in CC's and the love affair with the Apache this would be an easy sell but I don't think I've seen one.

It Is What It Is...with that being not everyone is an Apache buyer....you want an Apache for a certain reason not just because you want a bigger boat with big engines that you could find on any dealers listing

Just like the older Ferrari market from 1989 back.

That said, I doubt you could convince me that a boat designed and built 30 years ago is a match for any of the newer breed of boats designed this century. If conventional straight bottom deep V and heavy is the best then why don't manufacturers build just that? Don't want this to be another " Timmy V Philly" thread but the bigger consensus on the poll backed the newer boat, yes I know it also had bigger power but the thread wasn't about ultimate speed.

Love the old school style of some of the more classics boats, Apaches aren't the only one's priced up a bit but life is full of choices and personally, I'd choose a newer ride for the same bucks.

To each his own, makes life interesting.

It would be like buying a sweet 69' Camaro Z28...you know a new one does everything better, but its simply not a 69.

Everyone seems to forget the Apache is the only boat capable of handling both LOTO and Lake Erie waters.

Supply and Demand. Fact is, if you don't like the price....don't buy it. Their is an A** for every seat. The thing is, the price is starting point and maybe the owner will negotiate a little bit, but in the past 20 years that I have been watching the Apache market, the nice ones seem to get bought and sold without problems/hesitation so the prices must be in line. The problem for many that do buy these older Apache's is they run into the cost of ownership. Takes a lot to maintain an older Apache. Drives, Transmissions, usually big Blower motors, and the fact is, you are going to drive the thing with Anger because it is what it is. Stuff will break.

Are we talking about "The Chief", blue Mitcher T boat?

If so, the name of this thread is making me think of "No Reservations" given is owner association to the Two Cocks Fight Fountain.
