Default Sandler 47'

What do you guys think of this thing? Great bargain? Or, biggest headache ever? Has anyone ever heard of Sandler before. Looking for information.


Thank you,

Brent

Interesting boat.
Never heard of Sandler.
21,000 #'s???
Triple fresh 900's.
Arnesons.

Sounds like even if the boat is junk you could part it out pretty easy.

What's with the plywood boxes hugging each side of the third motor??

This boat was custom built by a customer of ours who wanted to build a full pleasure boat that would truly run over 100mph when no one else could do it in the early 90's. He and a naval architect designed the hull and had it built in Norway. It is a triple step design. The hull was shipped to the states and rigged here. Bud Lorrow (now with Cigarette) built the engines and did the last rebuild on them. The boat was stored and maintained at Bobby Moore's shop until T-N-T bought his business and has been there since. It is an awesome machine. He invested a million dollars in this boat and it did preform as planned (the boat has a 47' Hull, not including the platform, 51' with platform, 9' plus beam, full cabin, and ran 104mph the last time out). He has decided to sell the boat and has priced it to sell. He realizes it is not a known manufacturer and felt the drive train alone would be worth the ask price, but would prefer to see the boat remain intact. There were two of these hulls built. If you would like additional information, feel free to give me a call.

Bouyhunter, The fiberglass boxes are covers for the rear fuel cells and have removable lids.

Wow, awesome boat. I wonder if it's insurable with triple 900s.

That's a LOT of boat for the money! I'm sure the fuel bills are killer, but then again, your not paying a lot for the boat! Good Luck!!!

Seems to me there was a Canadian guy in the Florida Powerboat Club that had one.
Boat ran pretty well, but lacked finishing refinement if my memory serves me correctly.
