Default Info on Obsession Boats

I was wondering if anyone new more information about Obsession Powerboats. I do know quite a bit about them as a friend of mine used to own one and I don't know why I am thinking of buying one too. I found one but it say's it is a 1997 and i checked on NADA and it says they were only manufactured up to 1995. Any information pro or con is helpful on helping me make a decision.

THEY WERE ONLY MANUFACTURED UP TO 1995. I COULD BE WRONG BUT I WAS TOLD THAT THEY WERE A SPINOFF OF ELIMINATOR BOATS. A DEALER TOLD ME THAT AT ONE TIME ELIMINATOR WAS SOLD ON THE WEST COAST AND OBSESSION WAS SOLD ON THE EAST COAST. THEY SAID THAT THE OWNERS WERE RELATED AND USED THE SAME HULL MOLDS. I COULD BE WRONG, BUT THIS IS WHAT I WAS TOLD FROM A DEALER WHO SOLD THEM IN MARYLAND (ALL PRO MARINE).

Ya know Scott, you should buy a Sonic to go with your screen name. And Sheri would like it better than another squirly boat. Did you sell the AO? I was hoping to drive it again this summer!

I was really stoked about that boat!!! We drove 6 hours to see it and it wasn't what I wanted to pay on for 4 years, ya know?
We did drive it and it wasn't as fast as I'd hoped, it blew out in the turns, it was much smaller than expected and wet, really WET!
I didn't even low ball 'em with an offer. Just stuck the check back in the wallet and drove home...........

This party cat is like a pontoon boat! My kids love it but I don't know anything about this company. Resale value is terrible, but we plan on keeping it for awhile so that may not be an issue.
Seems very, very solid, heavy but solid. It would need an engine upgrade soon......

They were made up in Shawano Wisconsin in a small factory. Not sure if they still are or what. One of my employees has a nice 24' Obsession with a 454 procharged. Runs nice
