It is setup like i want. Gonna be using it for lots of diving and fishing. Im hoping he wil maybe meet me at 18k for it. He has definitly taken care of it. It is the newer hull design. I read somewhere they changed the 21 in 2002 or 2003...cant remember. But i am still looking until something is final. For all of yall that owned cape horns.... did you like them, good rides? Dry?

If so I'm sorry to hear that.
I have some experiance with hulls and running surfaces as does' my son.
I could not think of any reason what so ever to change that hull.
Are you pretty sure of that?
Ours was, I think, a 99 or so.
Something right in that area.

This is the newer hull version, right?

Those 225's last forever (like 5000 hrs) so I kinda disagree about repowering cost being a big factor.
I agree with these guys, $19K sounds like a pretty fair deal. I picked up 1997 with a 225 Yamaha for $12.5K last year.......the seller (Dreamweaver21) had three other guys in line after me.

$6,500 more for the same boat that is 7 years newer seems like a good deal to me.


As far as your last question.........I'm not sure I'd consider mine "dry" but it does just fine for a 21' boat. The model you're looking at has a re-designed hull and is supposed to be much drier. The boat is tough as nails, easy to maintain and dwarfs most 21' boats. I feel pretty comfortable in it even when the seas pick up and am confident that the boat will be willing to take way more than I care to handle.

If you do decide to pull the trigger I don't think you will have any regrets.

Lastly, regarding the comment about the re-power..........I'll respectfully disagree. I believe my 225 Yamaha likely has over 2500 hours on it. It starts in seconds and runs all day long not missing a beat. If you follow the advice of long time OX66 owners on this board (search) with some routine maintenence, you should get years of life out of that motor. Sure it might not get similar fuel mileage as a 4 stroke, but you should get an honest 2.5 out of it all day long.

Anyway, good luck.

Im gonna see if he will except 18k. Meet me in the middle. It is very well taken care of and it shows. The pics he posted didnt do it justice. I love how its set up and its turn key ready. It is setup the way i want.
It will be used for diving mostly and fishing. Will let yall know how it goes.

Congratulations! I'm a bit biased, but they are great boats!
