This MC was bought new by me in 2003. Special ordered. #35 of 35. Options include mini tower with rear lights and two speakers, tower bimini, two covers, binding blaster. 6.0L 385 hp Cadillac engine. Polished underwater gear and exhaust. Always stored indoors or on covered lift. Only 240 hours. Perfect pass. The boat has never had any issues, and has only been in 1 crystal clear semi-private lake. Dual axel trailer tows like a dream once a year to the dealer to be winterized/checked out. I also have a custom made (by) MC "hood scoop" engine cover available. Pictures taken Memorial Day weekend. Back in storage now. Call or email with me with questions. $43,500.

Still available. Just saw the boat last weekend---did not put it in the lake. Not sure when she will see the water again. Not a fire sale, but if you are interested, let me know

One of if not the most beautiful MC ever in my opinion. Hope it goes to a TT member!

I was just wondering why the numbers have been hidden? There was a boat like this that a TT member drove like 12 + hours to see from MI or WI, and when he got there it was not as good as the ad said. He was disappointed and drove home without the boat. The one thing I really enjoy about TT is the honest and trustworthy members. Good luck with the sale, and any new 35th Ann. owners out there let us know.

would you be interested in a trade for a 2011 197 x-7 switch with a 6.0?

Just to clarify, nobody came to see this boat. I can probably get a few more pictures, let me know if someone wants a specific shot.

I mentioned a similar boat since these are unique, limited and few for sale.
Here's the Email I got:
Funny story... After you emailed me the information regarding the last 35th For Sale in Baton Rouge, I reached out to the gentleman, negotiated a price, and verbally agreed to purchase the boat. Prior to doing so I was very specific with the seller how anal retentive I am (it's not something I'm proud of) and inquired about any blemishes, scratches, nicks, etc... that was within the interior or exterior of the boat. He stated his boat was in "immaculate condition" and sent me approximately 3 dozen photos all of which seemed to be okay after questioning a bit further.

Well to make a LONG story short... My father and I jumped in my Tahoe and made our way from Janesville, WI to Jackson, MS where we met the seller. I was excited beyond belief to be on the verge to take home my own 35th... That is until I got out of my vehicle and saw the following; stained carpet, faded and ripped upholstery, a dashboard with scratches across the polished inlays, gel coat blemishes, exterior decals pealing off the gel coat, and a cracked back platform. I was soooo disappointed! Within 10 seconds of walking around the boat I new I wasn't going to take it home, even after trying to talk myself into it! I politely declined the boat, thanked the gentleman for his time, and was leaving Jackson, MS within less than 30-minutes to make the 12-hour treck home!

Just funny how things work out... Sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose some! :) Appreciate the correspondence and have a Happy New Years!

So back to original question, why no numbers?

Same question here. Why no numbers?

I work near where this boat is and could take a look at it for somebody if they like. I contacted the seller via eBay and he gave me his contact info. The current price is above my budget. Looks like a special boat to me. I suspect the reg numbers are blocked for privacy, very common on used cars. Jamie

I've personally seen the boat. It exists exactly the location indicated.

Suppose to be 5 of them. 1 belongs to a dealer overseas, 1 up north in WI,
what about the other 3?

I heard 3. One over seas, One was for sale in Chicago a few years ago and I saw one headed west on I-40 in Ar. a long time ago.

Saw a video of Dave Ramsey doing some barefoot skiing, and if you look at the boat, it has the same scheme as a 35th, but not sure if it is or not: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTGuJPi88Wk
