Default Apache

Neverfastenuf- The person who bought works for Penske and they are associated w/ NASCAR in a big way so you may be right.

The boat has staggered engines and only three across bolsters- no back seat. Set up for a Poker Run if you ask me- but with a full cabin- Very unusual and limits it's appeal for many people.

The asking price is insane compared to what's out there and available. The auction was in the July or August time frame I believe.

Every Apache is custom built, no doubt,

But we just saw a 38 Top Gun with mega motors and # 5's get sold here in michigan for "around $ 85 to $ 90 k"

Wannabe, I entertained the idea of purchasing(bidding on) the 36 Apache when it was on Ebay. My reason was, as I am sure yours was also, it was such a good deal. The price now, is no where near as attractive as it was then. Like you posted, the market is saturated with extremely good deals now. Look at the deal OSO's Jeff has on the big HP Fountain. Sam

That is one heck of a deal on that big Fountain, but it is too specialized for Poker Runs (ex-race boat).

Need a little creature comfort for the Mrs. (and myself frankly)

Steve,

Broken Arrow is a real Beauty...

The whole
12 year old $300K boat thing is a little uncomfortable.

I spoke to Mark Adams a couple of weeks ago. I'm still tossing aeroung the idea of a clean 41 with 900's.

There's just no other boat besides an Apache that really does it for me.

What else is there??

Besides Cig & OL (both are good boats, but just not my taste)

Scalp do you want a pleasure version or a 6 pack boat?Kageman is a nice side by side #6 boat with MERC 800's. ALLEZ VITE is a nice full stagger. Nor Techs are nice, I take care of a 50.
