Had a 39 Sutphen for ten years. power for power in the bay the boat was about 50/50 against all those Fountains, Outerlimits and the like. BUT the boat never lost in the ocean, NEVER. Otto

traded it June/July '96 to dealer here for my 32' Velocity. I seem to remember it was sold to a mid 40's ? guy from east of here... Vermont side of Lake George maybe. How long's your buddy owned it or where did it come from to him?

AMBUSHER...someday ask him to look for a spider in the gel about the size of a quarter or less, under the blue paint on the port side of the deck. If it's there, it's her! I also had the sunpad vinyl reworked and left off the headrests at that time. Thanks, Randy

I've got a keen eye for all the "former loves", fleshy or plastic!. I might have the hull ID # around here somewhere. Look for that spider under the paint. Let me know. I can hook your buddy up with a couple of really cool pics of that boat in flight and it's first owner history. PM me anytime. Randy P.S. I put a drop in black plastic glovebox in it also, ring any bells? Also mounted a VHF or stereo head unit just outside the cabin door portside in the side of the deck/dash. I'm havin' flashbacks here like I did in the 80's. Small world =

I called about this boat a couple of weeks ago- it had been for sale for a long time for some reason- the owner races drag bikes and has a radical 36 Skater with the same engine combo as his Sutphen had. It was listed in boattrader at $99K just last week.
The boat (1996) had Chief 622CID blower engines, and dry sump #6's, all new and rigged by TNT. It had started life as a triple 500hp boat, but was converted to full stagger at the Sutphen factory. It ran a true 104 on GPS first time out.
Boat was a steal- I wished I had stepped up to the plate......more than $140K of new driveline there!

Sutphens are truly unique- some may call them ugly, I just think different. They haven't copied anybody, and the design of the PT boat is in their ancestry. There isn't a true rough-water boater out there that won't admit to their ability to spank a lot of boats in big water.

The boat: (graphics were vinyl- boat was all white)

The engines- big CID, low boost, very reliable.
