1976 Volga Hydrofoil

This 1976 Volga Hydrofoil looks and sounds like something from the Ukraine, like some failed, rotting remnant of a Soviet-era quest for superior recreation. Isn’t that what you’ve been looking for in your next boat? The listing provides almost no information, but that may be a lingering Cold War reluctance to share secrets and divulge technical information for fear of weakening the Motherland. This 30-foot Volga needs “complete interior and cosmetic exterior work,” but the Volvo Penta 4.3GL motor is strong and reliable, according to the seller. And it runs on vodka, which can be fun, but it can put you in a world of hurt the next day. I guess that could be said for vodka, Soviet technology and this Volga. Luckily you don’t have to go to Kiev to pick it up. It’s located in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and you can Buy It Now for $17,500.

I knew a girl named Volga once. She was from the Ukraine, and just like this Volga, she was more than a little dirty.

This 1976 Volga Hydrofoil needs a complete interior, in addtional to some cosmetic exterior work. But it is a hydrofoil, and that’s sorta cool.
