that beam! older boat, still has some great lines to it and looks well

there's a lot of good stuff floating around CL today.

anyone notice that shogren marine is advertising on CL now? They're a HUGE go fast boat dealer, used to be pier 57, and before pier 57 they were previously shogren marine. Some change of ownership happening there id say. I want to go to their showroom just to fap. $100k + go fast boats and that's about it.

1990 SEA RAY 310 EXPRESS CRUISER

this boat has been for sale since spring last year. Finally getting to a decent price. This would be a good buy around $12.5

the express cruisers have a stupid wide beam. Next Lake Michigan boat is going to be a beater like this.

agree. their boats are timeless. if you look at some of the updated ones, you'd never know they weren't brand new boats. no goofy years where you can say, I remember when they did this stupid thing to
the hull/deck/cowl

Except cigarette still makes heavy resin buckets compared to their peers.

I've never heard someone talk about a cigarette being fast vs anything else with the same power. Big ol' reliable wave crushing penis extenders with obnoxious embroidery for every year of anniversary they've had

but I love them

when i worked at MC, where you stored your boat at, they make a lot of parts for cigarette there... they are also a cigarette dealer.

cigarette does work for a lot of the other go fast boat companies also...

im sure, it's a small industry. pretty difficult for anyone to do everything in house and not go broke. How many cigs do you think get sold a year, maybe 100?

true. especially with how that market has died off so hard for new boats.

i wonder who else is even making v-bottom offshore stuff like under 40 feet long....

baja looks like they are around again...

checkmate appears to exist.

fountain looks to be back.

donzi appears to exist... this is kinda neat.



sunsation... fuck these are so sick. there's a dude down the river from my dad who has a silver/blue/green one



and then another mid cabin one by the river walk that runs reaaally good.





formula is around and has been and i think always will be. their shit sells well and their quality is probably second to none... munson is parkin' a formula dealership from what i understand, right behind gordy's which will be fun to see what it does to cobalt/gordys there.

these boats are timeless as well. so gorgeous.

Formula is good stuff. they have their cards in more than one game and have weathered well. Lots of loyal customers I feel, comfortable stepping across the different segments of the industry

there are a couple other boutique builders with small boats, I think you nailed anyone that does production runs though.

Active thunder is still around, another awesome brand. Advantage boats too.

i bet formula does with the fasT3c or however they stupidly spell it now. Probably checkmate too. Not huge runs but I bet they've got 10 or so boats waiting around. they're the only budget small boat guys around any more. Just not money in it unless you can slap $100k in billet and flashy bullshit on a boat.

sevens are way too heavy, you could do a single though with one. A pair of the new merc 400s sounds enticing to me
