I have had a 1989 Bullet for four years and the Negative is it is a Heavy boat and the Positive it is a Heavy boat and can take anything you through at it.Met a guy with a top Gun in the Miami Key West poker run who also had a Bullet he said he liked the Bullet better.
Mine has Bravos with 454 mags (365 Hp) Expect on a good day about 64 mph.
Have been through the Soo Looks and into Superior on it and it loves big water nice interior enclosed head is nic but small. The holdng tank is small and to put in a larger one looks pretty tough.

I love all Cigs old and new, no matter what. But that is something you don't hear everyday!

Bullet dashes are sweet

My Boats: 1988 Bullet FOR SALE
Posts: 2,398

I own 2 Bullets. 1988 and 89. The '88 is the hotrod of the 2 with MM hydraulic steering. Prior to installing the steering, I striped the transom and rebuilt everything. Half way through the season the steering was sloppy. Spoke to mercruiser which told me I was running too much horsepower with stock steering componets. The engines are apprx 600 horse each and boat does high 70's, low 80's. I swear by the hydraulic steering!
On the '89 I bought to fix and sell. Had it for a sea trial last August on the Cumberland river in Nashville. The steering was sloppy and half the accesories/indicators did not work. The only thing the boat had in its favor was rebulit engines and dependable bravo's. Once again the transom was striped and everything replaced. With its stock 365 mag's the steering should be fine for a while. The cabin interior is grey leather in great shape and in the process of replacing the cockpit interior. Boat will be avavilable in 6-8 weeks. If your interested I'll be asking low 50's with 3 axle trailer. Let me know if your interested.
I agree with Klaw in every aspect of details. I'm located in rough water country and this boat can go through most anything. HEAVY piece. With '99 chevy crew cab dually combined weight without drives was 18,780 lbs. You would need something that can handle that.
