Default Jupiter 31 deal?

Used 1997 Jupiter 31 Open, Sister Bay, Wi - 54234 - BoatTrader.com

This is as inexpensive as I have seen. Fresh Water boat.

Nobody wants a black boat in the summertime heat.

That boat would be the tits with two fresh 300XS's hanging on it.
Very doable if it can be bought right.... Love the look of those hulls!

Make sure you look at in person plus have a survey, you never know there are people out there that would sell you a boat with a broken transom.

I know I am getting old when a center console of that size that is more than 20 years old at a price of $44K is considered to be a steal.

I just sold a 31 Jupiter. That's a good price but factor in a $50k repower and $10k in new electronics and you're right back to 100k, not to mention it's in WI

if you have $50k in repower, what is the $10k in new motors part?

I apologize, I completed biffed my post. I meant to write $10k in electronics. A set of F300s cost right at $24k each right now +labor and install but I'll shoot lower at $50k because you can get smaller zukes for cheaper. Those old Northstars don't even make a good anchor. I will make it a point to post after coffee and not before.

Thanks! Yes it's buttoned up and will be heading to Jupiter (FL) on Saturday to a fellow THT-er.

I chatted on line with him about your boat. He loves it. It was a good deal and a sweet boat.

One problem I saw, butt others may not have noticed...
The thru-hull transducer is mounted on the bracket. Looks a lot like my Airmar thru-hull, with about a 3.5" hole.

That's a great way to avoid putting a hole in your keel, but I would suspect that the bottom tends to disappear at any speed approaching planing speed.
I like to cruise and keep a side eye on the bottom, looking for rocks, structure, or schools of fish.

Sure - they fish differently in Wisconsin with lots of trolling at slow speeds, but a transducer ought to work well anywhere you float your boat.

That's 100k boat as said above. I'd offer 35k for it.

I ended up buying it and just got it back home to Tequesta (Jupiter FL) yesterday. It’s super clean and runs beautifully. Always amazes me what a difference Fresh water makes. Originally bought it to flip it, but now the wife is in love. Lol.

If anyone is interested in it, feel free to call and come check it out.
