That certainly is cheap. Looks like it has 214 hours. I'd be asking all the normal questions of the dealer (has it been hit, any hull repairs, is it the original engine, etc.). Did notice that it has the 5 year interior that MC produced for a while. You'll probably need to include the price of all new vinyl as part of the purchase price and could cost up to $4K or $5K. Other than that it "looks" great.

When I bought my boat 2 years ago I did a history check on the boat from boathistoryreport.com. It's not the end all in background checks but at least they go through the title and look for any accidents and storm damage the boat may have been in. As I was buying the boat from 600 miles away I wanted to know that at least any title problems or major damage was exposed before making the trip.
