Featured Boat: 1984 Apache 41 Warpath Auction Ends Sunday

Offered by Bring a Trailer Auctions, a digital auction platform, and Ferco Motors in Miami, one of the most significant offshore racing boats in history is currently up for auction. That’s right, the 1984 Apache Powerboats 41′ V-bottom Warpath is going to end up in the hands of the highest bidder once the online auction ends on Sunday morning (Sept. 19).

Built by Bobby Saccenti of Apache Powerboats in 1984, the 41-foot powerboat that won that year’s American Power Boat Association World Championships in Key West, Fla., was restored more than 10 years ago. According to the auction listing, everything was gone through by the original artist, Gail Paik, and crew chief and Team Apache navigator, Tom Evans.

The listing also stated that hull #001 spent time in Massachusetts before it was moved back to Florida, acquired by the selling dealer in 2007 and restored to like-new condition during the next couple of years. The boat features a Kevlar hull finished in blue and tan with period livery, and its three-place cockpit was reupholstered to match.

Warpath is offered with a custom-built aluminum All American triple-axle trailer, period photos, a certificate of authenticity, a clean Florida title for the boat and a manufacturer’s statement of origin for the trailer.

Currently the highest bid is at $300,000. Check out the full listing here as well as a 50-second YouTube video of the boat in action.
