A new to us Hallett 255. Been wanting a new boat for so many years, I was wondering if it was ever going to happen. Brian from B&D did a leak down on it yesterday and told me I got a barn find of boats. Hour meter shows 177 but the computer shows 139hrs. If you see us, wave hi. 497468CB-F04E-4AD9-B4C4-927B2BDF3939.jpeg 03CC9FE7-A2B2-4A40-8DBB-64AF6779C3EC.jpeg 21DC7D50-1CB6-46AF-A387-EBEE65666F40.jpeg 0139E843-64EC-4261-B94E-16C36B698CBC.jpeg

    You got a beauty. I’ve been in search of a Cat, but this one almost changed my mind to stick with a V. Glad you bought it lol.

    Beautiful, great set up

    From the run history looks like it spent most it’s time just cruising the channel.

    Had a 255 mcob. Hp500. Could have used a little more hp.
    Assume the open bow is slightly lighter and the 525 just a bit more should be perfect.
    And its beautiful. If I could afford a new one it would look a lot like that!

    Was there a 245? My buddy had one several years back that was plaqued with design issues, when crossing wakes it would roll over on one side and not recover. He spoke with hallet about it and they were aware of the flaws in that model and very few were made as a result? I can’t recall what model it was, I think it was 245?

    Remember, the "t" is silent, it's pronounced "Hallay".

    So when is @ductape1000 stepping up? Or better yet, sell his and cruise with you. Best part of boating is on someone else’s sled.
