Nice Sunsation, I would say you are moving up very fast

95 mph sounds like a very conservative number with 700 hp (that's a first in this business!) 600 hp in these boats should push it into the lower - mid 90's. 700 hp should push it at least to the century mark. I wonder if the current owner has the boost "pulleyed" down to run on cheap gas. Something to ask.

Those are Jeffrey Cheng sized pullies on those blowers. I would imagine about 2 pounds of boost with those.

Caveat Emptor.
Don't back yourself into a corner because the deal is so attractive. Are you ready to step up to this kind of rig?
Going from a single engine to a blown twin engine setup is a big jump.
Remember, Blowers love gasoline. And don't forget the insurance!

Sounds like a deal to me too... I have a friend who just sold his sunsation 97 32' with 500 hp's he loved and still loves that boat. I rode in it several times well built and solid. and with 500 hp's it would run 83-85 mph steadily. with that power i wouldn't want to guess. but i guess i'm saying i like the sunsation and i had a 24 outlaw myself. not sure how i personally feel about the blower motors. to me that means work and trouble and i like to play not work my boat..

good luck

this boat is NOT hard on gas if you just cruise at around 3500 but put the sticks forward and down goes the gauge. I went to put in bay with a buddy who had a 31 scarab with 330's in it and the blower motors used less gas in that Sunsation. When I owned it it did not like a LONG time at idle (15 to 20 minutes). Was still working on that when I sold it.

Great looking boat outlaw. I'm in the process of buying a 32 Sunsation also.

Sweet boat - (but I'm brand partial) I went from a 24 Outlaw to a '32 Dominator - (a velocity26 fountain27 in between) I love my sunsation awsome ride in Lake St. Clair - anyways I think I've seen this blown '98 formely named Loud & Obnoxious at a Local Repo yard 2 years or so ago I'm almost98% positive thats the boat - I tried to buy it I think It went for 55-60K back then It was a steal - Just so ya Know be prepared to wrench - blowers motors are a headache - I'f you love to tinker -maybe it's for you - good luck -

If a leakdown test passes, and drain a little out of the drive to see how much metal comes out...then $43K is a go.
