it says min bid at 227? just sounds high for as-is deal and not knowing who had it and couldn't afford to keep it.

I would bet it's not a repo. Seems to be more info than what the usually put up for a repo. They get some in there just to sell.

Ive been there. Saw a boat there a few years ago and flew down to see it after talking to them. They wanted 20% before they would even show it to me. They handle repos and gov siezed boats. Most of them were stripped. The one I looked at was so bad I called the manufacturer and told them to get down there and buy that boat and send it to the junkyard before anybody else saw it. If its a boat involved in a crime it may be years before you can actually get it and by then, nothings left. Good Luck and be careful.

I disagree.
I've been there a few times. I bought a boat from them. They have pulled boats down off the rack for me to inspect, at no charge whatsever. Although, I've never asked to inspect a $200k boat. Yes some of the boats are in poor shape. Not all of them. You have to be careful when buying any boat.
I have found when talking to them on the phone they have been very upfront about the condition of the boats. That's, generaly, why you can get them cheaper.
