Default diesel

There is ample space for the large 3196 CAT's but speed would be lower.
At this price (less than half of new).... a repower to whatever the owner wants is feasable. The engines currently installed are new and could be resold.

Got to love standing headroom under the hatch! Put a light down there and wrench away, rain or shine!

Disappointed there is no desk station with glass enclosure in the engine room to do paperwork and such, while keeping an eye on the systems.

Of course, if you've got the scratch to buy one of these bad boys, I imagine you can write the check to have someone else turn the wrenches...

I was thinking the same thing. That engine room is a garage!

That would be an awesome boat to enter into the Miami to New York race next year.

Default Good question>>>

Great question. I am not a engine expert .... I just like to run them.

You can contact Bill (the name "Lil Bill") at Victory Marine in Houston and he can answer the technical questions regarding the engine.

The boat is ready to go and a 9 3/4
Essentially a new boat at 395k
An Aluminum/Stainless trailer is available with DOT strobes although the boat would have to come through our Panama City location for set up.

Hey Gary ...you out there ... <grin> this would look great with "Live Bait" on the side.
