Try using some boat search engines such as yachtword and boattrader to see what they are listed for.

They stopped making the Hull and the Decks. The Engines are Mercruiser. All the parts on the boat except the deck and hull are 3rd party products. Boats aren't like cars. The fact that they no longer make them is irrelevant. They are made by Brunswick, which makes Searay and BAyliner, Mercury and Mercruiser. That company is still the largest recreational boat manufacturer in the world.

All parts can be easily replaced. Fiberglass guys fix the deck and hull anyway. The fact that they no longer manufacture under this brand should not be a significant factor.

If the boat looks solid and you like the price, hire a surveyor to do a full survey. Make sure that includes a sea trial and engine survey.

Never owned one so I cannot say. This is why a sea trial is required. Maybe someone who has experience will chime in.

PS: what is a prop packets?

Got it, pockets or tunnels.

Have you search the yacht section as I know we have some owners post who had this model, just been awhile.
