    Looking for a Beavertail skiff like an Osprey, BTX, or Strike OR Vengeance or BT3.

    Prefer Etec 60 -90 on smaller boats or 90-115 on the larger boats. Powerpole, trolling motor, push pole a plus.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Thanks PT448!  I have been in touch with this seller... Very very hard to get a hold of and as another forum member stated, he was told by the seller he did not have time to send pictures.

    After much persistence I was supposed to see the boat last weekend, but he never responded to my inquires to set a final time.  Not sure how much he really wants to sell...

    Thank you for the lead...  If you see any others, please do pass them along!

    That's strange behavior by someone who supposedly wants to sell a boat. I'm always looking at boats online. I'll let you know if I see anything else.

    Were you able to get more pics or any other from him? I don't think he really wants to sell...

    I am being nice, but persistent.  No other pictures (albeit I haven't requested any myself).  He replies to a text every once in a rare while, but it does seem he may not be a motivated seller.  Since he is essentially in my backyard, it would at least be worth a trip over if I can get it arranged.  If he was in another part of the state I wouldn't risk the trip.

    Contact Liz at BT (941-705-2090) and give her your contact info. I was talking to her recently and there are a couple of owners getting ready to move up to the Lightning and she might be able to give you a first shot at one of their trade-ins.

    PT448   Thanks again for helping out. 

    I am admittedly doubtful that at 23500 we could reach a reasonable deal...  But good news ;) the guy who listed his Osprey about a month ago saw this price and raised his by $1K.  Didn't these boats sell new for about $23.5K?  Starting to wish I had picked up Jared's Strike while it was available for the $28.5 he was asking.  That was a gorgeous boat and only about a year old!

    Regards,

    I guess they figure if it looks like a HB why not price it like one. There was a BTX that looked like it was in really good shape, but it was all camoed out. Not really a fan of camo on a skiff. I don't see it listed now.

    OK, so I have to ask...  Other than the Camo (Which by the way I agree with PT448 on), why did you pass on that boat?  I am assuming you saw it as a prospective buyer.

    Super low hours and super clean, I could see it getting 20k or so. Maybe 21k. 23k is the asking price, not the selling price.

    I only passed on it because I can't afford that much. I only stumbled upon it because it was across the street from my hotel. And I promise it was 18,5 because the seller left me a message with the price and I saw it in person.

    Whoever gets this is getting a teal.

    POMalley,
    Thanks for the help.  I realized you were talking about the Osprey in the Keys.  I called and he said he took a deposit for $22K.  $18500 would have been a fair price all around.

    PT448,
    Thanks again for the help... I remembered seeing the BTX with Camo on the forum before I was in purchasing mode.  I found it on POPYatchs.  Turns out the Camo is a 3m wrap so it could be taken off with relative ease.  I spoke with the Broker and the owner has not been willing to move on his price of $27,600 (or maybe it was $26,700 darn lysdexia) for the 18 months it has been on the market.

    Thanks to everyone for their help!
