2005 Howard Bullet 25 High Performance in Livermore, California

Stock #165543

You're looking at this listing because you love the feeling of going fast, I mean really fast on the water. This is a fast boat that goes even faster.

Most Howard 25 Bullets can reach 73 MPH. After upgrades that took this boat's engine horsepower from 496 to 588, the seller reports that this one goes 85 MPH!!! You will get head turns and compliments every time you are out on the water because of how this boat looks and performs.

The engine was rebuilt from the ground up by Raylar with a Raylar Big Power Head, cam and intake manifold. The key to the rebuild functioning well was the addition of an Aeromotive High-Pressure Fuel System. With these modifications, the engine was tested on a Dyno at 588 HP.

This Howard was also wet tested and tuned by Carl Summers. Complementing the engine upgrades are a 28 pitch stainless steel prop, Mercury Racing Bravo XR Drive, performance dual piston Imco Hydraulic Steering, and Hydraulic Dana HP900 Trim Tabs.

Not only is the drivetrain topnotch, but the sound system is too with over $10k JL Audio Sound system. JL Audio Speakers, Subwoofers and Amps. Marine Alpine deck with remotes, It ROCKS!!

Also upgraded to 3 Optima Blue top Batteries (see pictures) with a battery isolator so when you are parked you can run the stereo and accessories off the 2 accessory batteries and it will still start off the starting battery every time.

Below the closed bow, there is an oversized bed with some storage under cushions and 2 seats, a cabinet for the stereo and storage and a built-in cooler that drains out of the boat.

The trailer is an Ellis Tandem AxleTrailer made for this boat. Owner added custom 17" alloy wheels with the correct load rating low profile tires. The owner also upgraded all the trailer lights to LED Lights with custom-made bezels. All four wheels have disc brakes. The torsion bar suspension and breakaway tongue make the trailer shorter when stored.

Look at the last few pictures to see the $1200 optional stainless steel bimini (with a cover to protect it when stored) that is strong enough to be used at speeds over 60 MPH.

Someone is going to be streaking across the water in style in this fast, upgraded boat during the upcoming summer. Will it be you or will you be watching someone else fly by in this boat?

If you don't know Howards, they are custom made in southern Califronia. It is a top of the line boat that is a higher quality build than Nordics or other boats, which is in the same class, but is a world apart. Come check out this Howard and you will see the quality and the power.

Information On Condition

The boat is kept on the trailer in a carport when not in the water. The owner keeps the boat maintained regularly. The owner has put in a lot of upgrades and has spared no expense taking care of and enhancing this boat. It is ready to go.

All engine information has been provided by the Seller.

Bellows replaced 90 hours ago according to owner.
