Zodiac Futura Mk2 HD

Spent a few years now messing with Sibs . Last year I picked up a very tired 2000 Futura Compact . Really liked the boat but the set up wasnít right as a long shaft 40hp was with it . Also the seams are starting to go.
I have spent the last few months keeping an eye out for for a Futura HD , they seem to be very few and far between on the second hand market. Is it that they are so good people keep them or am I looking in the wrong places ? Tried the usual google searches and eBay.

I went with a 60 etec. No regrets at all. I thought it would hit 40mph but it tops at 36 mph with just me, cooler, 12gal gas and console setup. I havenít had it out with a full boat yet. But it hits full speed in just a few seconds.
Evenrude etec 40-50-60 are all the same motor. Just different software and cost.
