Anyone know the boat or the story behind it? Whats the deal with the 575's and Bmax drives? Almost looks like someone pulled bigger power and drives out and threw this in to sell. I imagine the boat cant be too impressive with this setup. Even the 4-in-1 gauges look like a cost cutting move.

I think there were two built with bravo/575 packages that year. One was at the Miami Show as the in-water demo. The windscreen and interior makes me think this is an original.

One owner, only one mechanic has serviced the boat. Motors are original, used to have XRs but they wouldn't stay together. Switched to Bmax uppers, no issues with them. Boat sits inside year round at Performance Boat Center. The mechanic works for us now as well.

I believe this was the first sit down pleasure boat Randy built. It was the Miami boat show boat when it was new. I rode in it with Randy and Gary up on the river when it was new. We actualy ran it up to 125 with the 575's and bravos. Looks exactly the same as it did then.

That's actually an impressive number for such small power. IMO

I had the twin to it that was in the Miami show. Eddies boat from Fountain of North Texas. This one went to National Marine and got sold at auction through yacht auctions.com. It was missing a drive when it was sold. It was purchased for good money. From what I hear the boat is in great shape. I ran mine for over 100 hours with no drive failures. Mine ran a best of 112 mph.
