Cheap boats

For people who still have money to spend there are some great bargains in the USA to be had for next years boating season ...

Velocity 28' just $45k and still no doubt very negotiable



http://www.offshoreonlyclassifieds.c...o26207-en.html

Or a 39' 85mph+ poker run Velocity for $85K



http://www.offshoreonlyclassifieds.c...o26256-en.html

and one more 850hp 29' Warlock poker run boat $30k

http://www.offshoreonlyclassifieds.c...o26739-en.html

This seems like a lot of fun for what was £15k pity I've battened down the hatches for next year

If your budget will only stretch to $30k, then I don't think an 800+hp blower motor would be the right engine package.

Ye guess the petrol budget would be blown getting out the marina and a mechanical failure would turn you to drink


anyway i prefer one of these ...

The weather is going to be generally crap for the next few months so it could be time to get the fishing rods out and play with one of these :

The last few weeks the boat prices in US are in free fall. First real estate crisis and now the finincial crisis brought a lot of people into trouble. I think the next few weeks will bring us more very intresting offers. Now it is the time for people with cash.

Is this the same Dragon as Jackie and Mikes and raced as Extremeboat if so with a full canopy it looks different, with 1:35 gearing 108mph with 2x525hp's, guess this is what Extremeboat were aiming for last year when they did the re-gearing, although the 7400lb quoted weight I assume must be with engines and fully rigged, massively lighter than the 10,500+lb extreme ran in P1 but at $89k seems like not a bad deal even less engines

There ye go Mr Chaos a nice Fountain 47' for you as Mr JF thinks this would make a good steed for you next season, defo allot larger than a Phantom 21 think of the bling when you moor up at the marina, and you could make people disloyal walk the beak instead of the plank

If Chaos stepped up to your level with the 'Megga-Tanģ', he'd look like a giant Malteaser!!
