Florida's Best BoatsProviding the Best Boats at the Best Prices Online. 1300 White Dr, Ste E Titusville, FL 32780 321-505-4888 Introduction: Florida's Best Boats is a small marine dealership specializing in online marine sales across the globe of late model high-line marine products from multiple manufactures. 90% of our inventory is purchased directly from Banks at Marine Dealer Auctions. If you are interested in taking advantage of our current economic downturn and purchase an excellent condition used boat at a fraction of a new boat price, we are your source. Most of our inventory are Bank Repossessions that we hand pick and inspect thoroughly at the auction before we purchase them. Then, once we have purchased them from the Bank, we bring them back to our facility and complete an extensive checklist of serviceability. We go through each boat from Bow to Stern. We check everything on every boat to ensure an accurate account on our eBay listings as to what is serviceable and non-serviceable on each vessel. We Test drive each boat in the Indian River right here at our dealership. We again, check the motors, pumps, electronics, etc to make sure everything works as it should. We also service Mercury, Mercruiser, Honda, Suzuki, Johnson, and Evinrude motors as well. We strive to provide our customers with the best possible service we can offer. If this vessel is not the style or manufacture of boat you are looking for, please contact us and request that we post another boat on eBay that better suits your needs. We have many different boats in inventory at any given time and we turn over many vessels locally off of eBay as well, let us find exactly what you want. We keep our pricing very low as a key example of customer service. Our philosophy is not to get the most money from our customers as possible, but rather to personally satisfy you with this purchase to keep you coming back to us for all your boating needs. And to spread the word that you bought a boat from an honest, well respected company that prides itself with customer satisfaction. We are able to do this by being a small company with very little overhead. Please take time to compare our pricing to any other competitor around and you will find that our prices are very reasonable, in fact, unbelievable. We have been selling many different styles and brands of boats and cars on eBay for over 8 years and have built a reputation of honesty and trust with our customers that is second to none. We have an excellent feedback rating on eBay and are here to stay. You may notice some other dealers on eBay jumping from name to name to "reset" their feedback, not Florida's Best Boats. Beware of other boat dealers with less than 50 feedback. There is a reason they are starting over and over and over. We have over 1000 Transactions on eBay and a feedback rating of 100% Positive. That is not an easy task to accomplish. 100% positive customer satisfaction is something we are incredibly proud of! The only way to do that is to be honest and have integrity. If you think you are interested in buying this boat, I invite you to please call me directly. I am the president and owner and I want you to be as comfortable as possible in making such a huge decision to purchase such a large item over the internet. I would be more than happy to speak you over the phone about your specific needs and situation. Everyone is different and has different thoughts about their next big purchase. We are in the business of making our customers happy and we believe that something as important as your next boat or yacht purchase should be a personal experience, not just an electronic one. So, please do not hesitate to call me. 321-505-4888 and ask for Tom Rating System: Just as a reference, I want to try to explain my rating system throughout my description of this boat. At the end of the description, I try to give an "overall" rating. This rating is a number on a scale of 1 to 10. A 1 would describe a boat that you would find in a local outside junk yard that is completely full of deterioration, contamination, and damage. A 10 would describe a brand new boat or yacht with zero hours on it and basically right off the showroom floor. So a good condition boat that has had average use and care, would be somewhere between a 6 and 8. International Shipping: For those of you that are interested in purchasing this boat and having it shipped to your home country, No Problem. We ship boats internationally every month. We can ship boats up to 40' internationally and we have very competitive rates. If you need a quote to ship this boat to you, just ask. I would ask that you please be very interested in purchasing this boat before requesting a quote. It takes time to calculate quotes for international shipping and we get a lot of emails for quotes. When realistically, only one person is going to actually buy this boat. So if you want a quote for shipping, we are happy to provide it, but please be prepared to purchase the boat if the quote is reasonable. If you have any questions for us about transporting the boat inside the US to a particular port, that is no problem either. We are here to help in any way we can. We can also disassemble towers, consoles, whatever you need to bring the shipping cost lower. For Sale Locally: This boat is currently for sale at our dealership now. If it should sell before the end of this auction, we will be ending the auction early. Every time we sell a boat and pull it off eBay, we get flooded with phone calls from people who were waiting for the end of the auction to try and purchase the boat. If you are serious about wanting to purchase this boat, it is for sale locally. Boat Up For Auction: 38 Coyote Offshore Racing Machine!!!

The Continental 40 foot Triple Axle Aluminum Trailer shown in the photos is not included in the eBay bid price, but can be purchased by winning bidder for an additional $5,990.00 Vessel Condition: You are looking at a 1980 Coyote 38 Offshore Race Boat. This boat was built and designed by JC Simon (Jean Claude Simon). There is a brief explanation below about JC Simon and who we was in the offshore race industry. Personally, I am not a big offshore race boat fanatic, so I don't have a lot of personal knowledge on the history of Coyote Boats other than what I have read and researched online. My understanding is that JC Simon designed this mold and used it for his company, Coyote Racing, and then sold the mold to Sonic Performance Boats. I understand that this mold became the Sonic 42 with the addition of the swim platform by Sonic. The original Coyote 38 did not have a swim platform on it. The swim platform you see on this boat was added to her in 2002 when the refit was completed. So now, this boat is actually 42 feet long. During that refit, new motors were installed. 2001 Mercruiser 8.1L HO 425hp each EFI's. These motor are in excellent condition. They start extremely easily every time and do not hesitate at all. During the 2002 refit, everything was replace in this boat including gauges, controls, upholstery, interior, paint, drives, props, and of course, new motors. I have had this boat out off the Miami coast in 4 to 5 foot seas doing about 50MPH. That was certainly not top speed, there was plenty of throttle left. But 50MPH was plenty fast for me in those seas. This is a true race boat. The hull is made of Kevlar. Very light weight and very strong. Built for speed and agility. I was told the drives are Mercury #3SSM drives. I honestly don't know what that even means, but I was told they are expensive drives. Also, there is 2 sets of props. One was just refinished and trued as you can see in the pics below. The other spare set is mounted in the cabin on the boat. Also, I have a recent survey on this vessel dated June 1st, 2013 just 5 months ago. That survey shows the current value of this vessel to be $63,500. I am happy to provide that survey to anyone who would care to see it. It was completed by Performance Marine Surveyors, Inc. in Boca Raton, FL. This boat is detailed and sitting at my dealership ready for the water tomorrow. I am sure there is a million things I am leaving out of this description, but this is all around a very nice boat in great condition. I am certain that anyone who buys this boat is going to be VERY happy with it. If you have any questions at all, feel free to call me anytime on my cell phone, 321-505-4888. Pictures tell a thousand words, so let my photos speak for themselves. There are only about 25 photos listed on this eBay ad. We are debating on putting a graphic hull wrap on this boat and if we do, we will take a much larger photoshoot at that time. These photos were taken just a few days ago. So this boat is exactly as you see it in these pictures. No Gimmicks, No Games!! This boat is located at my dealership and is detailed and ready for pick-up anytime. She runs and rides fantastic!! Current Information Found Online: 38' Banana / Coyote / SonicThis is the Top Banana. A 38 foot Banana Boat. The design started out as a 44 foot MSV boat called La Tortuga. JC Simon modified the design and built Joel Halpern's 38 foot race boat called Beep Beep. He then further modified the design and created this boat. He originally had a deck design by Paolo Caliri that was similar to Beep Beep. Banana Boat Co. made design modifications and this was the final result. Charlie McCarthy bought the 24 Cigarette molds from Don Aronow and built up the Banana Boat company for three years with the idea to sell it as Aronow had done with so many of his boat companies. The boat company was sold in 1979, just a few months after this boat ran and won it's first race in California. The molds were then used by JC Simon to make and sell a boat he called Coyote. After a few of these were made, the molds were sold to Sonic and became the basis of their 41 foot deep V. This photo is of Top Banana winning the 1979 Bushmills race in California. It led every leg with the exception of the first where Bill Elswick in Longshot, a 39 Cigarette led for a few minutes. Charlie McCarthy was the owner/driver with Paul Lesnewski as Throttleman and Ron Morrison was Navigator. The boat was rigged by Bobby Davis of B&C Marine in Hollywood Florida and used a combination of engines by McBetts and sterndrives by Mercury, number III's. The next month both Charlie McCarthy and Sandy Satullo competed in the last ever Cannonball Car race across country. Charlie McCarthy set a new worlds speed record for a diesel powered car crossing the United States from East Coast to West Coast in 36 hours. The movie of the same name was made about this race. Jean-Claude Simon - Any history of offshore powerboat racing would not be complete without hull designer, Cary Boat Company owner, and offshore powerboat racer Jean-Claude Simon. Jean-Claude Simon's Cary 31' hull eventually wound up at Chris-Craft where it was used to produce the Stinger 312. Jean-Claude has led an exciting and illustrious life, and I greatly appreciate the time he's spent telling his stories of the early days of offshore racing. Trailers: Not everyone requires a trailer for their boat. Over the years of selling boats on eBay, we have discovered that not everyone wants the trailer. Some people store their boat in a dry rack marina, others store it on a personal lift behind their house, and others may keep it in the water full time. Because of this, the trailer pictured here is not included in this sale. If you are someone who does need a trailer for your boat, we can sell this trailer to you additionally, that is no problem. But the final bid on this boat is without the trailer. That seems to be the best way to level the playing ground for everyone. If you do require this trailer, it is the Continental 40 foot Triple Axle Aluminum Trailer shown in the photos but is not included in the eBay bid price. It can be purchased by winning bidder for an additional $5,990.00 This trailer is in good shape and I have towed this boat over 300 miles on this trailer myself. Overall: I have only taken about 25 pictures of this boat for now, so please let this page load so you can see every picture. I want you to feel as if you are here in Florida walking around it yourself. I want you, my customer, to feel comfortable with what you see. If there is any specific photos you would like to see, just ask me and I will go take some more. I welcome all outside inspections and I invite you to come and see them in person if you are able to do so. It seems more and more people are bidding on high dollar items on eBay simply to then inspect and determine if they want to buy after they have already won the auction. If you are serious about owning this item, then please perform all of your inspections prior to bidding. Once you have won the auction, you have completed the sale. Winning this auction is not winning the opportunity to inspect this item, it is actually buying the item. If you have any questions about this or anything else, please call me directly at anytime on my cell, 321-505-4888. My Overall rating for this 38 Coyote Race Boat as a whole is a 7.5 out of 10! As always, I am hiding nothing with this boat. Please understand that I am not the typical used boat dealer. I am honest and take great pride in my work. I hand pick all of my inventory and search long and hard for great quality boats to pass along to my customers. I try to treat every one of my customers with respect and honesty. If you have any questions, please e-mail me and don't hesitate to call me at 321-505-4888.
