The one in Iowa sold for $290k and was run on her bottom down to Texas, where she was loaded onto a ship to Oregon. The Alabama boat was purchased by her owners brother,  and remains on the Tennessee River.

Two (2) 2000 model 5788s as they’re FRESHWATER boats. The first one pictured is in Alabama, the other (scroll down) is in Iowa. The Alabama boat was sold new (one owner since new)in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, then run on her bottom to the Tennessee River, where she’s been since new. The Iowa boat was sold new in Chicago and spent it’s whole life on the Great Lakes til 2008 when her current and 2nd owner purchased her and brought her down to the Mississippi River.

The Iowa vessel has only 575 hours. She has a 12′ Avon RIB e/40hp Yamaha that has never been mounted on the vessel, instead kept in the owners garage on it’s trailer. Scroll down for first, photos of the Alabama 5788, and then to the Iowa one.

Heck, these boats are selling for less that what 4788’s used to sell for!

You should consider these two vessels as in VERY GOOD condition. The beauty of these boats, unlike the Nevada and South Dakota freshwater 5788’s available is that they can easily be run on their bottoms to either the Gulf of Mexico or the Great Lakes for East Coast buyers.

A new dealer owned  2000 5788 that was in Ft. Myers, which had received no updates or servicing since 2000 sold for $300k in 2017.

You won't find corrosion on the window frames of a freshwater boat.

Although she’s been in freshwater since purchased in Miami, she does have very MINOR corrosion in a couple of places on the window frames. Likely due to the run across the Gulf of Mexico back in 2000.

 

Engine room access is via the cockpit, as the stairs to the flybridge lift up for easy access.

This is why people will choose a 5788 over a 5288- the 5788's have a dinette. The 5288's do not.

Starboard aft side of the salon. Note that on the Meridian 580s, pretty much that whole corner is taken up by a big tube type TV. Most people preferred the wetbar on the 5788 as it's convenient to the cockpit and all of the salon.

Repeat- NOT.  The vessel has never had a tender, which is normal for river and lake boats that return to their slips after use.  There’s no place you can’t take a little boat that you can’t take the big one.
