Anyone interested in answering questions about an I/B Exciter


New member
Yes Sir, I've been seeing this one for awhile. There's no doubt that it is a very nice unit. But if I'm going to raise my budget to that price range it opens a lot of other options up. I could get a pretty nice Donzi sweet 16 for around that price range. I've never seen one in person though and it's hard to judge how small one of those actually are by looking at pictures.


I just spotted this thread and thought I would add my 2 cents worth. I had a 1991 Exciter GT. I believe the 'GT' was the I/O version. If I remember correctly, it was 20'(+/- an inch or two), it had a 350 Magnum (260 hp) with 4" thru hull exhaust. It would run 60-63 mph depending on conditions/load. I believe weight was in the 2500# range as it was on a single axle trailer that I pulled with a small truck. I actually had the opportunity to buy it back from the guy I sold it to but missed out by a day. If I can find any pics of it I'll put them up. By the way, I have never seen another. Hope this in some way helps!
