Now after looking at around 100 of those pictures,that is a dam shame!First off,I would of NEVER took control of the boat.Most if not some of that mess should of been able to be found in about a two hour walk down.

Looking into it more,that boat was rode HARD and put away WET!No maintence or care was used at all.The Dealer?

I can see why luhrs doesn't want anything to do with this boat.Its way pass a demo.Oh,yes I do see a lack of workmanship in alot of the pictures.

As I said in my first post about Luhrs:after looking at a new one around 10 years ago,I was not impressed!I haven't boarded one sents that first one.There was no reason to.

Lots of luck 41 Luhrs!I think only the blood sucking lawyers are going to be the ones to make out on this deal!

I did not comment before I saw the pictures as I could not follow some of the arguments/ comments being made. I cannot believe that this boat is even reasonably new. I am no expert on vessels like this, BUT I have run some older ones that were one hell of a lot better shape. If this was a car I would have to say it was built either very early Monday AM or very late Friday PM. Obviously there was no pride in workmanship by the builder nor any inspection by the dealer before they released it to Lurhs41. Those who say a survey was in order are certainly correct, but if I were to take delivery of this boat, I sure as hell would have seen most of the obvious defects. My only question to Luhrs41 is that you must have been in one hell of a hurry to leave Florida. Anyhow, I wish you well in this snafu. Waterat

I am not as quick to blame the customer here. I have seen many boats that were repaired incorrectly that looked great at delivery only to fall apart soon after. I owned a brand new Hydrasport walk that did just that. However it was not a 6 or 700k boat. I guess there is no integrity among thieves. Who knows the boat could have gotten damaged on delivery, but one thing is for sure the manufacturer could have resolved this issue with immediate action. The boat has a warranty they should have honored it and in a timely fashion. Not everyone in the industry honors warranty issues the same way, but I bet most of these issues were pretty well hidden before delivery...Where is the Dealer now to defend the pictures that were posted?

Just another note when we picked up our new boat in Fla on april 18 2006 it had 293 hours on it. Now the boat is in the Silverton plant in NJ with 447 hours on it. it took me 64 hours of travel time to get the boat from Fla to NJ. So we only used our new boat for only 90 hours.

I like the caption on the photo of the stern: “Rudder modification to help boat not kill you.”



I know it's not funny but I can't help laughing at that.

41 Luhrs, all I can say is that I am sorry you have to go thru this.

Edit: from the list of the boat's specifications in the boat trader ad:

DESIGNER: Someone who does not know how to design boats

I stopped reading at about page 8 so please excuse me if I missed something.

Going back to the early 70's I remember Luhrs not only looking like S T but it was a well know fact they were a P's OS. No if's and's or buts about it! It very true in my own opinion as far as looks go they've come a long way and actually look like a decent boat and are pretty well layed out. In the last 10 years I've known of two different local boaters who bought a Luhrs. I was shocked at one of the guys as I thought he was much better informed on quality boats. Yes, the boat was beautiful and fish rigged. It had that Carbo open look, I don't know what model it was but I think it was around 38 Feet with a pair of big Cats. I think he had the boat one season and maybe part of the next season. If you could have heard the problems and comments on that boat. He had nothing but trouble! The other was in the 32 foot range, also open style. A friend of mine went offshore in that boat and commented to me when he got back that he thought the boat was actually falling apart. He was trying to sleep on the way to the fishing grounds and as the boat planned through light chop he could hear rattling that he never heard before. ( he's a licensed captain by the way). Anyway, it turns out there were serious problems with this boat. In fairness to Luhrs they did fix it but it was weeks and weeks of work with the boat all pulled apart. That boat was sold very soon after.
My question is, with any kind of knowledge at all and 600K to spend, why wouldn't a person look at quality new used Bertams, Hatterasses ETC.? You'd never find any of these problems on boat like that even if they were 10 years old. 600K will buy a lot of nice boats.

They are fiberglass and Luhrs said it will keep air from being sucked down in to the props so I can steer the boat whileI am at high speed of 30 knots

64 Hours from Jacksonsville to New Jersey???? The average run is Jacksonville to Charleston (8 hours), Charleston to Morehead City (8 hours), Morehead to Virgina Beach (8 hours), and Virginia Beach to Atlantic City (8 hours).

Did you remember to put BOTH engines in gear?

We took the ICW most of the way. It was a very nice ride, we took in the scenery.Stopped at some very nice and friendly marinas. Went into some very nice towns and had dinner in some quaint restaurants. Just had a great time on our way up.

64 hours "having a great time" plus another 90 engine hours of use and the other time spent on the boat without the engines running. It certainly sounds like you got a lot of use out of the boat. Some of us are lucky to get half that time onboard in a season.

Our old boat we put 300 hours on in one season trips to the canyon's and up and down the jersey coast andI am sorry you have to work so much or somthing that keeps you away from using your boat. The wife andI love our weekend get aways with the boat.

Wow - that looks FUBAR to me . . .

Well - I guess everyone's right - you get what you pay for. Oh - wait . . . that just applies to Bayliner and Trophy boats . . .

FWIW - that boat may eventually get "fixed," but with everything going on with it - and with all you've said about it - you'll own it until it turns to dust. No way in h-e-double-hockey-sticks anyone's going to buy that thing. Good luck sir.

Good Luck with this one.......If you bought this boat for 600k looking like this your an idiot. After looking at the photos.....I never saw so many duplicates in my life (40 real pictures out of 246)...anyway you really do not know much about maintenace either. Obviously the engine room saw a fair bit of saltwater....but never saw much freshwater did it Most of the photos were of items that just needed to be cleaned or a little TLC. Nevertheless, there were some real issues that no one would be happy with--but did all of this really happen in the 150 hrs you have had the boat? I doubt it.

Good luck to you.....Your going to need it.

Hey look another one for sale just like mine dealer demo.

She has been fully taken care of by the owners staff and is ready to go. Hull and powertrain warranties do not start until the new owner has taken possession of the boat.

I got to get me another one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
