Have the yards felt the crunch of the economy?

Whats a bare bones 32bhm that does 20 knots go for these days?

I mean no electronics or anything? Just enough to get the boat running so someone like myself can outfit it over time the way we want it...

Hhmarineinc.com can get price on the page of a running boat less engine... Can price it as a kit to the running boat,call to get the sheet for options. Before my rp35 I think I was looking at 105k for the 32. Might be off but it's there.

Question?
Can you even "get" 20 knots out of a 31/32 BHM ???

Back to your question.

Shoot Madchark a p.m.
Ken & Dave Flowers did up a 33 for him with hull, top, Yanmar 420, shaft, tube and rudder installed.
He trucked it back to CT and finished it.

Trying to go cruise 20 knots in a 31' BHM will kill you at the fuel pump. I would look for a different hull if you want an economical cruise at even 18 knots. The BHM is at it's best around 15.

Thanks for the laugh... That boat is indestructible. We tried to kill it.... Still goes... Lol

Love my Privateer... Fast and plenty of room... But I have 3 kids and they like to bring friends fishing....

Did a double take when I saw 31 Bertram with diesels for $40. But that's not really what I want... Although my wife liked it...

Last option is a privateer 24 with a wheelhouse..

Boats suck....
