Description:  
condition: excellent size - dimensions: 25

This is a 25' Lighting 247xs. the hull traces it's roots back to Eliminator boats, who then sold the mold to it to Dave's custom Boats, who built it as his 24 extreme, who then sold the molds to Ultra boats, and their subsidiary, Lightning. This is an extremely fast, agile boat, with two steps and a delta pad, the boat is very responsive and is easily airborne if that is something you enjoy, I know I do. It is just as easily at home pulling a skier as it is doing 100mph across lake Havasu, or across Don Pedro. It was originally built with a stock mercruiser 496mag HO. the engine was taken out, gutted, and rebuilt with all titanium insides, custom pistons, CMI exhaust, and external steering. External steering is only ever necessary on a boat that exceeds 80mph. Some guys come down a little and say 75, and that's ok. It is all about safety. On top of the engine is a whipple charger, running a little benign right now at 4 pounds boost. It's enough, I don't mess with it. It's plenty fast just as it sits. All programming done by whipple, they know everything about this boat. I have had it up to 90, and I ran out of lake, but I had plenty of RPM's left, previous owner said 100 all day if I want it to. It likes to cruise around at 80...that is faster than 100% of the guys in tournament boats, let them think a corvette motor is the cats ass. We know better. Boat has a bravo xr drive, single ram assist, .28 four blade lab finished hill prop, and drive shower. If you race them, you will win. Last time it was dyno'd, the HP came back at 750 the dyno was Hydraulic and it pegged the thing out at 5000 foot pounds of torque. That's something, LOL.....

On the inside is a full blown stereo, speakers everywhere, Ipod hookup, heads up display on the drivers side. About $9000 for the entire stereo, I have the receipts. Comes with full bimini top, storage cover, and custom outside cover. This cover is for when you leave it out at night, say at the hotel parking lot, but take it off to pull the boat somewhere. Store it in winter but use the storage cover for it, not the overnight.

Boat comes with an Extreme dual axle trailer, they are the best in the business, torsion axles. Trailer needs bunks replaced, it is going in end of season for a full rebuild if I don't sell it. Also needs brake work, going in next couple weeks for that, sell it or not. I wont give to you until I do the brakes first. Don't even ask. I mean it. Don't. Don't. ;)

As for the boat, it's the loudest guy on the water. They will hear you long before they see you, and I forgot to mention 8" mufflers on it. Yeah, even with them in it. It's a pure joy to drive, fun and docile for you and the family, drop them at the beach, take it out and put your foot up it's ass and it becomes an E ticket ride instantly. It is by far the funnest boat I have ever driven.

Give me a call, lets talk. The price is $60,000 OBO. I got the receipts for all the work, you could not build this boat new for less than 90 grand. So come have some fun, run it across the Delta, across Tahoe, the altitude doesn't phase it, or across magnificent Lake Shasta on your houseboat trip. No matter how you use it, it will serve both you and your family well...I stand by that. Thanks for looking.
