Clean looking sled. Must be hard selling after putting that new power on it, bet its perfectly matched with that G2. Price is reasonable, bet this is gone fast.

Yes it is hard to sell it after all the upgrades but just decided to go a different route n need something a lil bigger. G2 is awesome! I've seen as good as 3.7mpg at 3900rpms cruising 35mph. But that was with light load n perfect conditions. Adverage is 3mpg or just over

Had a few inquiries about "Bahamian duty paid" so I will try to explain.
When u take a boat into The Bahamas u either have to purchase a cruising permit or pay import tax (duty). Cruising permit is $300 every trip where as duty is 10% valvue of the boat for a one time fee. Once duty as been paid there's is no further need for a cruising permit n the boat can either stay in The Bahamas or can travel back n forth at no further expense for a cruising permit. Just show the paper work for where duty has been paid when clearing customs n ur good to go. Or if u r a second home owner or vacation in The Bahamas a lot u can leave the boat in The Bahamas n fly back n forth without ever having to take in back out of the country.
Hope this explains it well n answers all the questions

I had that exact hull for 12 years and can confidently say that it is the best riding boat under 26' that you can get. GLWS.
