280 Velocity

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT A GOOD ASKING PRICE WOULD BE FOR A 280 VELOCITY WOULD BE.IT HAS A 600 PLUS HP INNOVATION ENGINE AND RUNS 90 PLUS MPH AND IS IN PERFECT CONDITION AND SITTING ON A ALUMINUM TRAILOR.JUST CURIOUS THINKING ABOUT SELLING AND GOING BACK TO A CAT. ::D

90+ MPH with only 600 horses seems very optimistic.

There is someone on this board that has a 26 w/2 V-8 Johnson's that runs over 100MPH, you know who you are!!!!

600 HP = 90MPH possible I guess. I'm no expert but velocity's seem to run fast. Good looking boats also.

How much? Can we see?

FOR YOU GUYS THAT THINK THAT 90 MPH IN A 280 OR A 260 VELOCITY WITH 600 HP OBVIOUSLY HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A VELOCITY,FOR A SPORT AND OR A PLEASURE BOAT IT IS KNOWN
FOR BEING A VERY FAST HULL WITH ITS PAD BOTTOM.BOBBY
POWELS 26 WITH THE V8 OUTBOARDS WILL RUN 100 MPH.

1hper1:

What prop(type, inches & labbed?) do you run and at what RPM? I think 600HP will get you over 80gps but less than 90gps. My speedo indicates 95mph when the gps says 85mph. Regardless of the exact number ... anything over 80mph in a 26' hull will be fast enough for MOST mortals.

Back to your original question ... My 280 is also for sale and was in the classifieds here until recently for $64,900 for a 2000 with a Whippled 502 without a trailer. I wil be putting it back in the classied section shortly for $60ish with a little haggle room if that helps you.

Good luck
