Default "Pristine Gladiator" in the classifieds

I'm just curious if this is the same boat that was for sale in the Fort Meyers area a while ago. The story I got was that the boat was submerged and then redone. Its a beautiful boat however it still is what it is and that's a 14-year old boat that has 14-years of use, I presume 14-year old wiring and other buried components, etc. Can it possibly be worth the asking price of $149K? Seems like really tall coin to me regardless of the condition.

It’s for sale by cobra powerboats, it’s in Miami is that the same cobra that was involved with the engine building thread a while ago about used parts being used in a “new motor”?

RIGHT?

Yes its the same Cobra. Seems like this guy over-prices everything. They have a 2008 Nortech 36 that's been listed for at least 3 years. "Perfect" with new 900 Cobra motors @ $199K. Now its less money because it needs some touch-up. I guess not so perfect?

1st owner of that Gladiator was the British guy Andrew and he traded to Fastboats on a NT 39V. A friend of a friend was the 2nd owner for about 3 months and he traded it back on a 36 NT cat. Somewhere along the way it went swimming in Texas but that had to be 8-10 years ago.

My favorite Cobra listing:

This thing has been for sale a solid 10 years with about a 10% price reduction yet those "fresh Cobra motors" are still under warranty!

This was Joe Cardaci's boat up until a month or two ago. I have seen it in person and it is FLAWLESS. I couldn't believe when Joe told me it was a 2004. From what I have seen from the listing broker on Facebook Marine Unlimited, they and even Joe were unaware of the sinking until someone brought it up on facebook and they did some research. It was fully rerigged/ re wired afterwards and it shows. I think Joe just redid the stereo, interior and a few other things.

Big deal it went for a dunk. It was fresh water and totally redone. It was long enough ago. If there was a problem it would have shown up by now.

Usually it is a big deal it went for a dunk, no? I've seen a little more history on it since the post but it still is a 14 year old boat. The price dropped by $5K today so its getting closer but it still seems real high.
