Default Looking for a Hull

Want to build a "Project" Center councel - Was able to score a set of Trip 300 Suzuks, for about half the price they should have been - Owner just could not make the payments any more and took them over. Problem is I need to find a hull?

so anybody have any clue where to find a 31 contender, Yellowfin, Sea Vee or good high end CC Hull.

I know some of the hulls go up for sale every now and then but have been all over the internet looking.
***Due to the economy have a lot of free time to build my Run and Gun offshore machine.

Looking for a Hull that will run from Naples FL to the Tortugas Fast and Dry

Any help would be appreciated

call Jack at Sea Tow Naples fl. He salvaged a 34 Venture a few months back and may still have it. Ludicruos on this forum may know about that hull as well. Send hime a PM.

There is an older Venture on Boat Trader that was just reduced to $49k. Sea Vee boats has it for sale. Must have taken it on trade. Good price on the hull with throw away engines. Might work well, but don't know if the transom could hold trips.

Fountain 31's fly with twin 225's, so trip 300?

It will be a little unusual to find a hull with no motors unless you get something that is storm damaged, or ready to be crunched up because of age, neither good canidates for a hull that you will want to be in when you pound it with speed.

But you could probabaly get a new one a close to the same price in today's economy, and have something really worthwhile.

I'd buy a hull for twins, sell one of the other motors and use the $$ to outfit the boat. Twin 300's in any 31' cc hull will scream.

Ok I may have stated the word Project a little to strong

**My view is that yellow fin should be sent to final rest -

That Sea Vee is ok I looked at it in person - The big problem with that one is the hull is cracked from Front to back - The pictures of the damage are not to clear but visually this one has structural problems from front to back - Someboday slammed it up on the rocks

Thanx for the replys and have been following the auctions just go fast and I have to work and miss these when they come

The pics of the stolen YF36 are just wrong. I hope someone takes the effort to do as suggested and get it back to YF for a refit.

Here's a nice hull just waiting for trips, and you are good to go:

If it is still available, I imagine they would entertain offers as it has been for sale for a while now.

which one - the black and orange one or the gutted and destroyed one? Both evoke similar emotions...
