Been around and for sale for a good bit.

Member Dean Ferry Has some good insight on it and it was built by Mystic iirc.

That boat was built by Callan Marine. John Cosker (now owner of Mystic), designed that boat for Callan Marine back when he was an engineer and throttle-man for them.

IIRC, that boat weighed in at over 30,000 lbs and still ran 95mph! Last time I saw that boat it had been sitting for a long time down in FL, and it showed it. The interior was pretty bare-bones and could use some significant attention and updating.

I have no idea what the boat is actually worth, but if someone bought it right (maybe half or less of the asking price?) and put some work/money back in it, they'd have one very serious, unique, and reliable boat!

Gotta agre, "holy cow!"

Shame about the antifoul, that's a lot of bottom to clean up.
I think I'd open up the canopy/hard top, as long as the Cats weren't do deafening and didn't suck passengers out of the cockpit and back up against the air intakes grilles.

Yeah but do you think you can tow it with an F150 ecoboost? I know it probably needs the airbags and a train horn to keep people out of your way!

I looked at this boat three years ago and unless they've totally gone over the boat than these pictures are not even close to the current condition. Boat has been sitting in a barn for a really really long time in the Florida humidity. Interior is falling apart, the cabin is pretty much stripped, the dash is all pulled apart for who knows what, there has been fiberglass work done to the transom that was really just roughed in and never finished. It is a cool boat but the reality is that it is basically a 65ft boat with no cabin and no amenities, which if you pulled the engines and drives nobody would ever spend the money to put it back together, so basically that tells you it has to be bought for what the drivetrain and trailer is worth.
