Default Interesting 42' Fountain on Ebay

I look at this boat and can't help but think it started out as a Customs boat. The cabin looks like it was the plane Jane model and updated along with the cockpit.

New engines, etc. I mean who burns up 2 motors in 5 seasons. Also, 2 502 MPI's in a 42' ? Maybe a 70 mph boat. Bring on the whipples.

It's an ex military/DEA boat I would be willing to bet. Hence the poor vinyl, interior and the side by side seating.

i've looked at it, the boat was seized, probably a drug runner. owner put in new engines and interior, used the boat a year, then donated it to mothers against drunk drivers for the tax write-off. boat probably needs $15,000 to $25,000 work to bring it up to low wholesale book value. the interior needs to be done correctly, needs all new guages.
the guy selling it now is a representative to MADD.
previous owner had it at havasu, registered in arizona. oh yea, it has extra fuel tanks too. i'll bet it came from florida.

Like fountain does interior correctly! (Ha Ha He He)
I saw this boat in person last week. I know the individuals selling it. You get what you pay for in boating, and they do not price there boats through the roof. I am sure whomever buys this boat will get a good deal and be a happy 42 fountain owner.


And thats all I have to say about thayut!!!
