Looking to buy A 2000 - 2004 Eliminator Daytona 25. Would like a stock 496 HO or 502 or 525 but not a deal breaker. One with no power plant is fine too. Show me what out there. Thank you

I will be swapping the 509 in mine for a 496 with 220 hrs next month and will be asking 49k if still looking for a boat

Is this thing in Havasu? If so I would like to come see it.

That is my old boat. I believe he sold it. If he doesn’t respond in a few days PM me and I’ll see if I can dig up his number.

What stopped you? I know you had a few, just wondering what it needs to be a one-a-day boat.

One of my previous office lady had said out of all their boats the 25 Daytona was the most fun, from Halletts to wake board boats.
He would go down to 55k. Boat is worth it, but I would likely redo the trailer and interior and a few other things and be into it for 70k plus, if I was gonna keep it a long time it would be worth it but I’m good for about a year for a boat and a 25 won’t bring 70k regardless of how nice it is. My last one I got for 28k in michigan in the dead of winter. On that one I had the room to make all kids of upgrades and still not lose my ass when I sold it.

Thx for the info. Once my kids get older (I have a ways to go, only 7). I would like a 25 Dayton just for the wife and I. Looks like a fun boat. Not to big or small.

I agree Walt - I keep kicking this one around a lot but the price is just a little much and we just moved to Texas which means 4k Shipping on top of it. Slim Pickings right now and the wife is getting really antsy. Let me know if you find anything else you are going to pass on and through it my way. LOL

There was a 25' that just sold for around $75k. All blue, supercharged deal, half cap. Nice boat. With that said I wouldn't sell mine for less than $100k. It has had everything done to it. And I mean everything... Even a brand new adrenaline trailer. And seeing how much they want for a new 25' these days, I have no reason to sell it for less.

IMO it’s WAY over priced! Single step, not the glass liner, left hand drive, the list goes on. Makes the 496 boat I have listed a much better buy for just a bit more!
That price makes me wanna sell my 99 😁

I don't think any of those items are deal breakers. I actually like left hand drive. Glass liner I could go either way, Single step, if you add tunnel tabs it actually runs faster than a dual step.

And they had north of six figures into the redo of that boat. If you go that big on upgrades and redos you beat be prepared to enjoy it for awhile.

I can say I got a smoking deal on mine when I got it. Definitely needs updating as far as interior, new motor is in the works now. I'm starting to fix everything that needed attention now that my daughter is a little older. Trailer and interior are on the list for next winter. Looking at grabbing that max machine worx drive that is listed for it, not sure if I'll wait for winter for that or install that when I get it.
