thanks for the reply
I just got back from the first one. It seems to be in a good condition. Tubes don't give the impression of 10 years old use. I looked all tubes around the boat and no cracks or any kind of damage or repair is visible, except the stern where the owner has repaired both stern tubes, since as he said all cobras are very sensitive there. Is that true ? The hull has few small hits from the trailer, but nothing important, and no kind of cracks or serious damage has been seen. The engine is a Mercruiser 250 HP diesel with bravo-2 duoprop stern drive with aluminium propelers. The engine hours I've seen are 460 hours in total. I've had boats of that age in the past, but this diesel is in a way better condition. It seemed to me like a new engine !!! I even asked if this engine is new and not the engine purchased in 2000 with the boat. Indeed this boat must be loved by her owner, and she is very well mainted through the years.
I did not taken any photos, because of the heat today in Greece (almost 40 degrees!!!) but in two days I will arrange a survey with Mercruiser engineers late afternoon, so I will have more time to take some shots. I promise I post as much photos I can.
Yes this boat will be bought for leisure use in maximum BF 5 to 6 conditions, for island hopping in the Aegean. The bow and stern sun decks are what attracted me in the first place, since in the stern sundeck our family can rest in the sun, and in the bow with the tent included kids can take a nap. Yes in Greece Cobras have a good name and resale value too.
Will be back with more photos
