Rare 1973 18' Sport Master tri-hull boat with trailer. Purchased this boat for a restoration project in the spring of 2022. Due to family health issues, I don't have the time for the project. Fiberglass is in excellent condition, with very minor (normal) wear on the bottom. All original gauges work perfectly except the trim gauge (sensors were unhooked when I bought it but still in place). The original interior is in excellent shape for 1973, but really needs to be replaced. The Mercruiser 165 hp motor (GM 250 straight 6) is almost like new. Starts right up and runs like a new engine. The drive unit has a new impeller as of 2022, with about 10 hours on it. The floor does have some soft spots on the original plywood, but is very minor. The only issue with the boat is the forward/reverse throttle cable needs adjustment. It goes into drive and runs out perfectly. It will go into reverse, but will only reverse at idle speeds, and hangs. There is a fairly complicated adjustment for this, that I have not attempted to work on. The boat comes with a brand new Bimini Cover, and the original snap-on Bimini cover from 1973 (in perfect shape). This is an awesome little boat and with a little work would make an excellent restoration project. The boat is lake-ready now if you don't mind not having full reverse. Never affected us trailering/un-trailering the boat. This is what I would consider a boat in great condition for being 50 years old and it runs great on the water. Has a 105-ah deep cycle battery, all the chrome and glass are original and in excellent shape. I have replaced a few odds and ends on the boat for preventive maintenance, but have all the original parts saved (ignition coil, distributor cap and rotor, etc) as they all still worked perfectly. The boat comes with a trailer and has working trailer lights and good tires. The trailer is also in great shape! Feel free to shoot me a text if you would like to take a look at it. This will be a local sale, cash only. I have current registration (same as title) and will give you a bill of sale. I will not drive the boat to you, I will not ship the boat. My phone number is two-five-six-655-48 nine zero. Text or call is acceptable, please leave a message if I don't answer call and I will call back! Thanks for looking!
EDIT: Took the post down to hold the boat, buyer never showed up, so its available again. Will not hold! Tried to be nice and got burnt..
