Got a NEED for SPEED??

The TX-19 "gullwing" or "cathedral" hull design was developed by Jim Youngblood around 1975. This boat remains one of the most popular and copied performance jetboats ever built. This hull design is still built by several builders today.

The TX-19 was considered an "almost idiot proof" boat. You can set it up most any way and it will run decently. With the Chevrolet Berkley 555 CID inboard it will move.

According to, "it is still considered one of the quicker hulls from a dead start to 600 to 800 feet out. At about 800 feet the modern tunnel boats start to come on strong. It also takes additional power and more sophisticated hardware for the tunnel boats to perform to their peak potential, but the TX-19 works with what you can give her!"

According to the seller this is a turn key boat with just 12 hours on the rebuilt Chevrolet Berkley 555 CID engine and the pump. Seller states that everything is restored and that this is a ready to run boat.

Probably the one detail that means the most when you are talking about this boat is that this is a Jack Youngblood Jetboat!!!
