Bluefin boats

 Hi all,

 

Just wondering if anyone here either owns one or has any experience with a Bluefin Barracuda of any size by chance? I am looking at possibly buying one as they are great value compared to a Renegade or Outlaw and have a lot of inclusions with the package also. They seem like they are more common in Queensland but if that's where I have to go to get one at a good price then so be it. I cannot find a great deal in any searches I have done on Google or anything except for a few reviews saying the ride isn't that great due to their hull design but they were 2013-15 models so not sure if they've made improvements since then. 

 

Any info for or against much appreciated.

 Thanks for the reply mate. 

 

I'm really just looking for the best value as I have a budget and they have a boat that is the layout I'm after and it comes with a lot more inclusions.

Yeah most comments have been they're a good build but the ride could be a bit dodgy.... Love to hear from someone who owns one and can say yay/nay

 Any more info would be much appreciated. 

Earlier in the year before all the COVID kicked off I was looking at the Stacero Outlaw boats, but obviously dropped off once the pandemic took over because of all the uncertainty around the world. Well today I was contacted by the Stacer dealers asking if I was still looking because they are having sale. Due to business being bad I'm guessing and because of Evinrude announcing they will no longer be building the ETECS I have been offered a 489  StacerOutlaw with a 90 ETEC on the back and with offshore wash well for $32,000.Not sure how to feel about the whole Evinrudeb right now though and how wthings will be effected with their decision last week.
