I am looking to upgrade and am wanting a 2010 or up Z520. I prefer an Evinrude, but would also consider a Yamaha especially a SHO. Must be a 250, lower hrs the better, even better if it has some warranty left. I prefer something with blue on it, but am open to all colors except green, black, or mostly white. Some decent graphs and good trolling motor. PP or talons a plus but not a necessity. I know this is probably a lot my shot, but I'm looking to spend around $30k. I missed out on my ideal boat a couple months ago that was posted on here. If you have one or know where one is please pm me or post below. Thanks

I have a 08' Z520 that is loaded down with lots of extras. Im asking low $30ks.
Boat is at Fun N Sun Hurst. They should be putting it on their site any day. Give Monte or Brad a call if youre interested. 817-280-0303.
Good luck finding a '10 or newer in that $ range.

Dang, I would have been all over that 521, somehow it slipped past me. Just my luck. I'll check out your 08 Sinkey. The only reason I say 2010 and up is ease of financing. Most places I've talked to about loans only want to give 4 yrs on anything below 2010, and I want to go a bit longer than that. Not to mention the fact that some people are way over priced, I've seen some 09 models they still want over 50k for, that's rediculous.

I check bass boat central, here, and others nearly every day. I like your 08 Sinkey, just not real enthused with the hpdi motors. They seem to be pretty picky about their fuel system, and when it isn't working properly there goes the power head. A lot of them seem to be around the 300 hour mark. Snakebit sir, if you gave me a boat with a merc on it I would take it straight to a dealer and get an etec or a sho put on immediately. My whole family has run evinrude/ Johnson since the sixties and rarely have had an issue. The two mercs we have had were one in the 80's that blew within a year, and I had one on my last boat that always was having some issue and I sold it because I felt one day it would leave me stranded.

Yeah I'm gonna hold out until you find the right one. I still have my 79 and it's not going anywhere, so I still have something to fish out of. Just don't like taking it very far from home or on rough water.

As I added to the title, I am also interested in a 2000-2007 521vx. I actually prefer the 521vx over the z520 because I like the layout and style better, but they are hard to find. That is why I was wanted by a z520.
