Hey guys, I know its not Jeep related, but my Dad is trying to sell his Boat so he can get a pontoon. Now that he has grandchidren , he wants something that can hold a few more people than the current boat.
It is a 1996 Stratos 278FS. It is a Fish and Ski style boat with five on-plane seats like a runabout, but the two back seats can be used on pedastals like a bass boat. It is the best of both worlds. The outboard is a 1992 Evinrude Intruder 150 that runs like a champ. The boat has spent its entire life in a garage if it wasnt on the water and is in excellent condition. To give you an idea of how nice he keeps his stuff...
He originally bought a 1992 Stratos but a moron ran a red light in 96 and hit it. The insurance company examined teh boat and determined that it was in such good condition, the only reasonable replacement would be to buy him a brand new boat and just transplant the outboard. Thats why the outboard is slightly older.
He is firm in asking $10,000 for the boat. The new versions of these boats sell for between $25,000 and $30,000 and are only marginally newer looking than this boat. The only poroblems are a few hull scratches that are bound to happen during regular use. I have pictures for anyone who is interested.
