    Default Price check on aisle 7

    I was pretty gung ho on buying this boat but decided before I run over and hand over the cash, thought I would "ask the pro desk" The boat isn't completely rough, but it is overdue for a pretty significant list of things, interior, top deck has seen better days, motor runs but no history of a refresh of that or the running gear. On top of that, its s total unicorn and I think with the DD, its probably lucky if it hits 50 mph. Even with a nice discount from asking, thinking it needs 3-3500 to really make it a solid weekend warrior. Any opinions? Thanks, I am looking to grab it today if you think its any kind of a deal.

    Default Price Check.

    I will step up although I'm no authority. Those guys will show up after they sober up. lol!!

    For the age of the boat she looks to be in decent shape. No excessive beachings or damage that I noted. I've had a couple of Eliminators, one in particular close to your model and I sold it about 2 years ago for 4500.00 Mine was in worse shape and didn't have the Big Block. I also noted that it has a firefighter sticker on the starboard side. This is no guarantee but most firefighters keep their stuff up pretty well. Again no guarantee. I did not view the video of it running so I can't comment on that. If the boat will do what you want it to do ie ski, tubing etc... and does it trouble free then its a good buy. Don't try to go over 50 or make this boat do something that it wasn't designed to do. Buy it, enjoy it and maintain it and you should be able to recover your investment if you decide that you want something else. Not something that happens very often when dealing in boats. Good Luck!!!

    Paul pretty much hit the nail on the head. You prolly won't get much response as this type boat isn't what most of the people here use. No offense...

    I have had 3 Eliminator boats. They have all been cruisers and I will say that they are a quality boat and can be fixed as far as the visual aspect. If it fits your;e needs, get it at the best price you can and roll, Just make sure the all the paper work is correct and the numbers match. Good luck! M

    Default It's a runner??

    It is a runner right?? INSIST on a water demo, period... Offer to pay for the gas if necessary, but DO NOT under any circumstances pay that much for ANY boat without a "water test"..... If the owner won't put it on the water, walk away, or offer 2K "as is" dry...
