2005 Malibu response LXI popped up the other day so we jumped on it. Asking price is 27500 CAD which is obviously high. 420hr on the monsoon 340, comes with perfect pass, heater, and a 750lb ballast bag. Single axle trailer as well. Owner said they did hit a rock a few years ago but spent 16k to have the bottom refinished and the strut, rudder, driveshaft, prop, and wedge replaced. Incident occurred two years ago and everything has ran like it should since then. Other than that there’s some sun fade on the exterior and the carpets a little worn (as expected with these years).
So basically I’m looking for general opinions on the boat, I’ve heard lots of good things about the model years between 03-06. We’re checking out the boat today, if it’s in good shape we were thinking around 23-24 is a reasonable price.
