Default {newbie} HELLO ALL, LOOKING TO PURCHASE A 2005 3100

Im thinking of buying a 3100. boat looks nice. It has mercruiser 5.0 w/b3. i just sold my rinker and this maxum will be a step up in size. I have no experience with twins so this will be a first for me. Is there anything I should be aware of with this particular model?

Welcome aboard

Funny I see folks post this question all the time and while I know of some boats that I would say yes there are issues with that specific model I don't know of any Maxum that fits this mold. I recommend a survey and have the engine and drives looked at by a mechanic.

IMO Maxum made a great boat fir the dollar too bad Brunswick shut the line down.

Twins make boat handling MUCH easier. Practice maneuvering away from the dock using only the throttles.

Welcome aboard. As an owner of a 01 3000 with twins b 2's once you catch on to using the throttles like driving a tank maneuvering in tight places can be very easy. Good luck on your hunt.
