New 357 Mercruiser Engine With Only 20 Hours!

This 1978 Formula 255 26 footer is in better than expected condition for its age. A big bonus is its new Mercury 357 engine with less than 20 hours. The bottom was painted two years ago, and the boat is kept in dry storage. It has new coolers with seat cushions, new seats, LED lighting, and a toilet. It is equipped with a Humminbird 597 HD Sonar GPS which includes the local marine charts. On the boat are two anchors, one of which anchors provides a 200 foot rope. The vessel is referred to as the "Marisol" for its ability to provide sea and sun enjoyment. If a boater is interested in heading out to the gulf, the owner comments that the boat rides great and can handle the choppy waters very well. The owner enjoyed frequent recreational trips to Marco Island with his family of six and occasionally used the boat for scuba diving. The boat currently needs its vinyl ceiling repaired and the console teak panel replaced. This Formula 255 presents the normal wear and tear signs of an older boat, but its new owner will enjoy upgrading this vessel to their personal liking by providing some TLC. The owner remarks the exterior polishes up quite nicely and shines every time it has a fresh wax. The owners are selling the boat because of a lifestyle and wanting to purchase a different style boat.

ConditionThe boat is in better than expected condition for its age, but as with any older boat, there is definitely TLC that could be provided to upgrade the boat to a new owner's satisfaction.

Replacing the vinyl ceiling would be the first project that needs to be completed.. The refrigerator does not work, yet the stove does. The teak console panel needs replaced. The repairs and upgrades needed are offset by the new 357 Merc with only 20 hours.
