    I know of one in Barrington RI that may be for sale. Would have to approach privately. Fair condition. I believe same owner for a long while.

    There are 2 on Boattrader.com that I have been following as well as a 58' YF. The Admiral and I are still several years away from searching/acquiring a new boat, but I watched these just to drool over.

    Thank you Rob, I'm heading to Florida next week to look at Acquiesce. The other has 6v92 motors, have had bad experience with those motors, sticking with 8v71t.

    I would do just the opposite. The 6v92's at 550 would be my preferred engine in that boat. More HP and better fuel economy. I had over 5000 hours on my 6v92's when I repowered. You'll never wear them out.
