    I am looking to possibly purchase this boat this weekend the problem is, the seller says its a Highlander boat but i've searched it and can't seem to find any info on highlander boats. does anyone have an idea of who makes this boat and whether they are a reputable company? Thanks in advance.

    The owner should have a title, or I wouldnt buy it. It should have all the info you need.

    I'm not familiar with Highlander boats - but what is the year? It looks new enough that it should have a HIN number on the transom or sides near the transom.

    I was able to obtain the HIN from the title and it turns out the boat is a HiLiner not Highlander, anyone know any about these boats? says it was manufactured in MA

    See if you can get in contact with this guy as he would no doubt have some great experience to share, even if it's not the outboard version you're looking at: http://www.geoffdevine.com/

    Get in contact with these guys from The Hull Truth Forum -- there are a half dozen Hi Liner threads there (mostly IO but one OB too) and a handful of members who either know of the boat or have a Hi Liner there -- http://www.thehulltruth.com/northeast/114682-hiliner-222-boats.html

    I've never seen a Hi Liner in person, at least I didn't know it was one if I did. Seems like a boat that should be better known around here given its lineage... maybe dominantly on the east coast?
