That would be a great deal on the two engines.

Somethings funny unless Eliminator made a 27 I'm not aware of (and that's very possible). I've never known of a 27 with twins or one with that deck. To my knowledge, the first 27 was the newer style and twins would never fit.

Eliminator made a 27' with twins, in the late 80's a friend of mine had one.

That's not an Eliminator. That boat could be a couple other boats, but definitely not an Eliminator. I would be very cautious if they were selling it titled as an Eliminator. The lines look more like an Awesome Cat or something like that.

In the 80's Eliminator made a bigger boat (maybe a 27) with Twins...it was the first bigger daytona with twins then along came the the 25.... There was one with big engines that ran around Havasu called Terminator in the 80's. The shape was the same as this hull in the add. Terminator use to be one of the faster boats on the lake.

Didn't Eliminator make a couple 27s (or was it 26s) with twin scorpions about 10 years ago? They had similar ugly gel coats.

I think they are referring to the way the dash is set up, and also the way the sponsons are very pointy where the newer ones are set up a bit more blocky. this just looks like a scam to me

I don't know if it's an Eliminator or not, but I'm inclined to believe that it is. 30K sounds about right for an old cat, with whippled merc motors.

The one in the ad looks like the old 27, same sort of look as the other pic I posted.
