Default i wonder who made this up

i have a cape horn and think it's a great boat. i wonder if the person that put the info in this add has ever run the boat.

says it will run 60 knots with twin 200hp
wants 61k

i paid less for my (2005) 27 new with twin evinrude 250's

Price: $61,111 OBO
Sound like it could be the balance of a loan.

Wow! A boat dealer stretching the truth to make a sale. And inflating the price at that. I'm shocked!

nit-picking... but it says "cruises at 45MPH, and hits 60 when needed"; infers MPH, not knots

so a new 27 with twin 250's costs less than what this 2003 24 is listed for with twin 200's...

how much is a new 24 with 200's?
all the cape horns just "look" like a fishing boat...love the lines and the size

Agulhas

did you buy from J&A in Houston?
I've heard they only rig Mercury and was curious if you knew for certain

nat you are correct - it's merc or oars. the only 27 they had was a new 5yr old boat and motors. just couldn't do it. bought it from dealer in new orleans. i wanted evinrudes.
