I used to see this boat run around the Ft. Myers Beach/Sanibel, Florida area. It was owned by the Younquist brothers. The 39 Sutphen had 1100 Chiefs/# 6's that did 105 mph. They also had a 36 Skater with the same powertrain that did 150 mph.

Staggered
Previously had BIG power and ran 100+
Dash is all Auto Meter Pro Comp
Rigged at TnT
Two bolsters up front, three bolsters in back.

I bought the boat minus drives and power. I have bought #6 transom assemblies and will be re assembling the boat with pretty much the way it was but with normally aspirated power.

Should make a nice package.
And I will be buying it when he's done, so all of you vultures just keep on moving, nothing to see here, go about your business...

Fred that thing is bad a$$! Doesn't look like enough of a project for you though. What you have in mind? Paint? Crazy interior?

I'd leave it just like that!

Question Here's a silly question

If you had a 105mph 39' Sutphen,,, why would you buy a 41' Saber?

Good plan Fred, maybe when you are down with this one I will be ready. Then again, I doubt it, you seem to be really going thru them this past while!

I believe the Saber was already in the process of being built...he really only wanted the drivetrain from the Sutphen....

Nice situation to be in!!

The saber is a project I already started when I made an offer on the drivetrain in the sutphen. When I realized the many months it was going to take to rebuild my 41 I bought the whole boat so I would have something to run. This thing absolutely rocks in calm water. Best exceleration I have ever felt in a boat like this bar none. My saber is a 41 apache hull that weighs 11,000 and all I care about is pounding big water. If any of you have ever seen wicked won you might understand the reasoning.

Fred will not believe how great it is to have 6's and with even 700 naturally aspirated motors this boat will be outstanding. Fred, enjoy and give me a call this week.
