Sailfish boat

I have been looking at a 2003 266 sailfish. It has twin 225 yamies 4 strokes they want 35900 for the boat. My question is what do you think about this brand of boat good or bad?

    They seem well built, I have not been on the water in one yet.

    Solid mid-tier boat, though I hear some of the models are a bit wet riding.

    I have a 236 and will buy a 266/2660 as soon as I can.(been looking for a solid 1.5 year)
    Def a decent mid-tier boat.
    Most thing I like about is the size/room for ......their size. Big boats
    Great fishability, but great for family too.
    not a bad price for that(u could do a little better), depends on elect, trailer, packages and hours. I'd scour the web and recheck.
    The 225 4 strokes were hit or miss with serious issues, be sure you get a qualified survey
    I have a much bigger and more powerful button

    Make sure to pull the lower units and check for the F225 exhaust corrosion issue.

    Thanks for the input I will keep looking around. I have an old 20 step v and just want a bigger upgrade. Let me know if you find 2 great deals :)

    They are there.
    You can snag (gotta be quick) loaded 2008 with twin 150 low hours around $50 - 55 mark
    Excellent fuel economy by the way on that engine/boat combo

    They appear to have a variable deadrise hull which is simular to Seacraft.
    If true, it should ride pretty good. I've heard good things.
    Good luck.

    My buddy has one of their bay boats... 18 footer I believe. It's a real nice riding boat and laid out very well. Not sure if this translates to the bigger ones or not...

    There are better boats out there.. I put 550 hours on a 2660. It would have been more if it was not always getting some issue fixed. It did not ride side all that great either. I also had a 236 before the 2660 and loved that little boat. IMO it rides better, believe it or not..

    I bought a 2007 2360 with twin yamahas 4 strokes with 47 hrs on engines a couple years ago. I couldn't be more satisfied. Great storage, big fish boxes, 20 rod holders, freshwater & saltwater washdowns, huge baitwell, large transom door, 10 person capacity and with lenco tabs rides real nice.:thumbsup

    Offer 32000 you might be surprised. boats haven't been selling all that well due to the economy and the price of fuel. If you like it get it. I made an offer of 5000 less on a boat 2 years ago and was shocked when I got an e-mail from the guy saying SOLD!. He was 7000 upside down, I felt kinda bad.
