Description


Here is a project boat that I must sell due to financial reasons. I bought this boat two seasons ago and never had it in the water. I do not know the exact year but the previous owner told me mid fifties. It hasn't seen water in over 25 years! The previous owner had it stored in a garage for that long! It has no rot and it is very solid, including transom. I bought the running Mark 25 last year from someone who had been using on a regular basis. He had mechanically restored it and said that it ran beautifully. It has been sitting for a year, so it may need some fine tuning. It is not restored cosmetically but it looks quite nice for it's age. It has the bracket for remote controls, which I also have and will include(vintage Quicksilver). Other things I bought for the boat that I will include in the sale.... Wilcox Crittenden vintage windshield brackets...shown in pic but they are not attached and there is no glass. You can get glass cut to fit at any glass shop. Also not attached is a cool vintage Fiberform pearl steering wheel. The boat has pulleys attached for steering cables. I built a new front seat, with aluminum trim on top to match the aluminum on the motor and trim pieces on the hull. Also not attached are vintage bow light and very nice vintage glass stern light. The trailer is nothing to boast about, but it gets the boat where it needs to go, and has great rubber! I only have a cheap cell phone cam, so I apologize for the pics. But trust me this boat is a real eye-catcher and I hate to let it go...especially with my lake 50 feet away! But I do have another boat project and one of them had to go. Feel free to ask questions...or if local please ask to come take a look if interested. There is no title, but I will provide a bill of sale. I have heard that in Mass you can register a boat with no title pretty easily if it is under 14 feet...and this boat is 13.5 feet. Anyone who knows old vintage boats etc can tell you that the motor and accessories that I am offering in this sale are some of the best you can buy, and if I were to sell everything separately, WITHOUT the boat and trailer, it would easily add up to nearly $1500. It's a very good deal. Forgot to add that the very bottom of the hull is fiberglass over the cedar strips, and it looks as though it was made that way because it was very well done....and is in perfect condition as well with no cracks at all.
