“HULLBILLY” is a one of kind cold molded 68 footer. This boat is hull #110 by Merritt’s and was built for a very knowledgable owner who has had many previous Merritt's and other boats as well. Finished in late 2022 and barely used with only 146 hours. With a replacement value of over $9 million dollars and a seven year wait for a new boat this makes an incredible opportunity for someone in the custom boat market. “HULLBILLY” was built with a four stateroom / three head layout and a beautiful Linda Ashley interior, and stands out above the rest. With MTU power, Seakeeper stabilization and all the best equipment this is a must see for the serious custom boat buyer.
