Breaks my heart to have to sell but moving to the East coast. F- California! :)

I’m the 3rd owner, this boat has provided myself and my family endless reliable entertainment for the last 5 years. I’m asking $40,000.00

Mercury Racing 500efi w/ 250hrs.
- Oil Changed every 20 hours w/ Mobil 1 including filter
- Spark Plugs every season and new plug wires last year.
- Raw water impeller every season
- Fuel filters every season
Bravo XZ drive w/ dual hydraulic assist
- Outdrive serviced by WOT Marine in Vista every season. Kyle will vouch for this boat.
- All new seals installed this season in March
- All new bellows last year, gimble bearing and associated parts including shift cable replaced in 2020.
- All hydraulic lines are new, steering bushings and trim tabs were recently rebuilt
I have basically serviced or replaced just about everything on this boat.

Eddie Marine trim tabs
Triple Axle trailer with all new bunks replaced this year.
- 6 wheel disc brakes that currently don’t work, I think its my truck to be honest. I paid Frank at Frank’s Trailer service a small fortune to replace the bunks and trouble shoot the brakes. He told me everything was working on his end when I left but haven’t had time to trouble shoot. Tires are decent but about 4 years old now. I replaced all the bearings and wheel studs 3 years ago and purchased all new stainless lug nuts. Also upgraded all the lights to LED This year.

Interior is all original but still in decent shape, no tears or anything. Can easily get a few more seasons out of it.
Gatorstep installed on the the swim step 2 years ago.
New custom cover last year.
Keep in mind, this is a 2001 and although the gel has a mirror like finish there are a few scratches and dings.

I’m trying to think of anything else but DM me if interested and we can chat.

That's the truth man! I have a 94 25' eagle and it cuts the channels in Powell very nicely.

To be honest if anyone here that is looking for a good Powell boat. you will not be disappointed in this Hull.

Nice. I got a ride in Parker one day. The weather was NASTY and the water was fully white capped.

That hull didn't even notice. I was beyond amazed. 👍🏼

Thanks guys for looking and the kind reviews. It’s true, I can adjust the tabs down and throttle right through most anything Havasu can offer.

That's a nice boat cover. Do you know who did it? I like how it completely covers the sides. I assume you tow with it on?

I’m not sure I do but I’ll check. The Bimini is still in great shape.

Final price drop to $45,000, this is my rock bottom. Will be heading to the east coast in 4 weeks if it doesn’t sell.

I’ll do $42,000.00 just so I don’t have to take it with me.

It’s 32’ from tongue to tail, I don’t recall how wide at the moment but Im thinking around 8’ wide I fit it though a 12’ gate with room to spare. I can double check tomorrow.

Mostly tire kickers and low ballers. I think it’s a good deal but obviously it’s just me, lol. A lot of boat for the money compared to what’s currently out there.

I know the boat market typically cools after labor day, but with it being so hot for so long I expected it to at least retain some momentum. Like you I've had a few tire kickers, but your price on this is a pretty big deal

Yeah, it’s kind of weird. Didn’t think it would cool off this much. I recall when I bought this boat 5 years ago it was in December / January. I think loans are still rather easy to get as well. I’m guessing interest rates will be going up after the 1st of the year but I’m no expert.

Hell of a deal on a boat!! I have a 25' and wished I would have held out for a 26 for the extra leg room in the back seat.
