Complete Fabbro/Merc 25SX rig For Sale. This equipment finished 2nd in 2017 APBA High Points and has qualified for the National finals for 2 straight years and won the SSOA High Points in 2017. We are selling out, so you will get the exact rig as it would come off the water. That means you get our best Dewald prop and 2 more that are in the works. Our best and only motor was Chuck McCabe’s National Championship and Merc Challenge winning motor. It had been put away and pickled for over 20 plus years. With resealing, recent fresh rings and a gearfoot rebuild we have run this motor for 3 successful seasons. Last year it got the new style cowlings and looks sharp. The Fabbro came by way of Rich Runne. It is light, in excellent condition and has a strengthened transom. With a 176 lb. driver the complete 25XS rig weighs in at 396 lbs., dry. The boat comes with a custom aluminum transom tank and a trick, quick bolt on transom bracket so you could run a Sidewinder on it. It is the same hull design that Ryan Runne took to the 2016 ASR National and High Point Championships. This boat can run as an ASR, BSR or 25SSR. All the equipment is extremely clean and in excellent condition. You get everything. We will not sell separately. Just add a driver and go. $6500. Please call Jeff Manning at 781-771-6253 or email at JManning@nedda.com or talk to Bruce Nichols at 781-293-9493 or email oldpropnut@comcast.net
