    My college ski team had 2 of these. I have tons of fun memories in these boats! Base price at 16K looks great too!

    First time I ever ran the course was at Dee's Ski School behind one of those. Wow, cool to see one again.

    Have one in So Cal that will get cleaned up and put on the market soon. Got it for my kids , but they don’t use it. Great boats for that era.

    Wow Nice looking and well preserved. Love seeing those well cared for ski-craft From the era CC. MC. Brenda"s Centurions and Malibus can hold up well. Harder to find...... Supra. American Skier, Supreme but they exist!

    @RichardDoane thanks, happy with the ol girl. I had some carb issues which have now settled down and she is running like a beaut. ill check if i have more interior pics and send to you if it helps.

    @immikerowley more interior picks would help me as well. I'm restoring an 89 Brendella and none of the seating/trim is original. Your pics have been helpful so far, especially the gunnel upholstery.

    My 89 is original other than the observers seat cushion...what pics would you like?
  • marknmarkn Posts: 546 Mega Baller
    Looked at the $16,550 list price and calculated in todays dollars, it would be $34,500. That would be a true bargain in today's market.

    Brendella was a big supporter of competitve skiing in NH back in the nineties, with lots of promo boats at the tournaments. I drove and skied many at these events, and they had a great boat for an affordable price.

    Have many sets behind my ski partner's 1989.
    Fun boat, very good pull with PP.
    Had to stop skiing it due to wood stringer issues.
    Anyone ever tackled the job of installing new stringers?
    I know it is no small task, but the boat was running so good, and near perfect times. And, the nostalgia.
