Did you forget a zero on the price? For $2500 with a running engine, its a steal, unless she doesn't float. That is one fine project boat. If I didn't have kids I would buy it in a hearbeat. The trailer is worth that.

For someone with the time and money to fix her up,f or even strip and sell the parts, it seems too good to be true.

BTW - what's the beam on her?

i want but can't afford on second thought let me talk to my boss. They are looking for a trailer for their 24 footer. I'll tell them I found a trailer for them. Not saying the "magical 3 words" - YET.

it has a 8' beam, beleive me when i tell you this deal is not to good to be true, and sometimes someone can get a deal of a lifetime and sometimes they just pass it bye. most people that stop by and see it just think its to big for them but all boats look big out of the water. this is one of the nicer older boats around. thanks, vin (i got a good deal on my new boat so i thought i would pass it on)

Great hull. My buddy is in the process of restoring one - not a fly bridge model though.

If I were to do your boat, I'd convert her to a center console with a bracketed outboard. For the price of the engine and bracket, new deck, gas tanks, the console, and an Awlgrip paint job you'd have a nice deep vee CC that you could sell for more than you got into it - money wise that is.

In the description is says "trailer included", so unless it's a typo, I'd say yes. Looking at the photo, the trailer looks to be in good shape - rust wise anyway. You may need brakes and bearings, but still this is one great deal for the right person.
