In the market for a ready-to-rock boat and have cash ready. Anyone thinking about selling wants a quick deal contact me.

Loose Requirements:
2000 or newer
Single engine
Fuel injected
25’ to 30’
Brand preference: Eliminator, Howard, Nordic, Hallett, Magic, Shockwave, Ultra
Family-ish boat. Need to be able to pull a thing with kids. Top speed not a concern right now, cruising 40-60 range is perfect.

Pretty flexible on most other stuff - as long as its not a wake board boat (family would disown me) or a pontoon. Preference for deck boats, seen some magics in price range but sold before I could get there.

No I wont pay 100K for a 2000 25’ eliminator with a 8.2 and 800 hours, or more than the boat cost brand new. Has to be somewhat reasonable.

It’s more than your budget, but you need to look at the Conquest Deano just posted. I don’t believe you find a nicer boat for the money anywhere right now.
Yeah badass boat, just more than I'm looking for right now

Thanks everyone for the replies and messages! Got a really good lead on something in a few weeks. Only thing Id prioritize over it at this point is a good deck or cat with walk through open bow.

Coast Motor Group just posted an 07 Ultra Shadow Walk Thru with a 525 for $99,900.

Not a bad price considering... Would need to verify the top end rebuild and how long ago.

Not at all considering the current market. I know the 525s can be hard on the valvetrain but more than half the hours look to be under 2k RPMs. We have a 525 with about 235 hours in our Nordic and it runs great. Probably look at refreshing the top end around 300hrs or so depending on what the shop says.

Not sure if you are still looking. We just listed our howard. 25 bullet, 60 hours on rebuilt motor by teague, 220 hours on boat, full hydraulic steering, teague platinum drive. The boat was completely redone by teague and howard in 2014. You will not find a cleaner and better maintained boat. $80k

Tony’s old boat. I tried to trade Tony a Grand Sport Corvette & cash, Tony said no bueno. Sold the Vette, the boat was gone, it went up North. Have always liked this boat, still looks good.

Awesome looking boat. I actually found you on Facebook a few weeks ago and we talked about it, but we since decided we need an open bow for family-friendly activities. Love the power package in this thing though

I almost bought this boat in Canada right before you did a couple years ago. I ended up finding a 25 Howard a few months later with a Teague motor also. Why are you selling if you don’t mind me asking. Besides the mark up lol. It’s a beautiful boat.

Never thought I would ever hear these two phrases together. Budget Boat and $100K :eek:

Good Luck with your search. It’s a tough time of year to be boat shopping

Haha, punctuation matters I guess. Looking for boat; budget 100k.
I actually found a lot of really clean boats out there, just pricey given COVID prices and and the time of year.

Different one. Smaller motor, but open bow.
WOW, congrats, really like those colors, looks super clean. I have never scene that boat before, great job bringing it out of the shadows!
