Default best price on SSM VI's?

Where and how much? Brand new full package with everything. I know the retail is about $50k a side but where can I find the best price on a pair?

105...If you are buying new, I would think Mike and Paul could get as good a deal as anyone. I am assuming these are for the 39 OL? I have heard talk of some reconditioned ones but not sure where they were sold from. Good luck!!!

The best deal I ever saw was on a new pair of them attached to a pair of new Chief 930Hp engines. They were also attached to one particular 39' Sutphen, that was discarded and sold to a new owner, who now needs #6 drives with engines attached.

All kidding aside- I think the best deals are going to be through a boat mfg. (when building a new boat) or high volume, high performance Merc dealer/rigger.

I always heard that the best deal was to find someone interested in a pair of 900SC's, then buy the complete package from Merc and sell the engines.

Try this link www.outdrives.com They seem to be pretty decent. Or www.govictorymarine.com Can't remember if they were listed or not, but they can get them as well.

Why does everyone think those were 930's? At 7lbs they made 1050.

BTW Discarded is the wrong word. More like gave to a man who really cares.
