If you don’t like this American Skier, well, you’re not American, or perhaps even human. Something about these old Correct Crafts just drives my ventricles. This one appears to be clean and original as you’ll find. Indicating less than 800 hours – the Ford 302 is a solid, steady V8. The interior shows very limited wear in what almost certainly looks like the original vinyl with the exception of the rear bottom cushions. Too bad really, the rest is so nice. The Paw Paw, Illinois seller says all the gauges and lights work. Grab this 1977 Correct Craft American Skier now on Craig’s List for the very reasonable price of $4,500. Or if you have any beater muscle cars lying around, the seller is willing to trade as well.
Finding a 1999 Correct Craft Super Air Nautique with the 502 cubic inch “Python” engine is a bit a of a rarity. This one appears clean and has been for sale on and off in the Correct Craft forums on the interweb for the past year or so. Still, I can’t help but post it if only for the music that engine creates in my ears while I write about it. The Clearwater, Minnesota seller is very thorough in his description and pictures. Check it out on CraigsList where it’s offered at $28,500.
Another 1999 Correct Craft Air Nautique, only this one will cost you $23,000 less… only problem is you have to finish it. The hull has “new paint” per the seller. The engine description is lacking some explanation only allowing us to know it has one, and it’s low hours. The only items that are claimed to be needed yet are a windshield and the gauges. All in, if the parts are there, you could have a pretty nice classic Air Nautique for around $6,000 and a hundred hours of labor. Find it on Craig’s List in Waterford, Wisconsin for $5,900 OBO.
The Century MK II was originally manufactured from 1971-1975 and was available as a v-drive, jet or I/O. This model is the v-drive powered by a 340 cubic inch Chrysler marine engine with a reported 191 original hours on it. The condition of the boat doesn’t seem to support the low hours, unless it’s just purely neglect and sun damage. The top of the bow looks to have a lot of fiberglass hazing and the rear seat and dash both need some attention. Regardless, this is a very cool and desirable old Century boat. There’s a video of this boat running – if you watch it, you may end up buying it. Too bad the music drowns out the far more pleasurable sound of engine noise. You can find this 1973 Century MK II on eBay in Punta Gorda, Florida for $7,900 Buy it Now.
Unless you got to visit the Mikkelson Collection before it was dismantled at auction a couple of years ago, you’ve probably never seen a Falls Flyer. So here’s your chance to own your very own 1958 Larson Falls Flyer. This Falls Flyer is said to be “the only model in existence” – whatever that means. Maybe in that color combination? Not sure, because others do exist. The Falls Flyers were made from 1938 until 1960. Every single one is a masterpiece – especially the early models manufactured out of cedar with a canvas skin. Here’s your chance to own one, find it here on eBay in Hallandale, Florida with a $17,900 Buy it Now.
A polished aluminum barrel back boat. Kinda of like polishing an old rock – you can sell almost anything when it’s shiny. This 1956 Feathercraft Vegabond II wouldn’t get a second look if not for its very sexy barrel back behind. Powered by a much newer mid-80s model Mercury outboard, this little tin can would look good at any vintage boat show with an outboard closer to its birthday. Regardless, the boat appears to be in very nice condition with newly upholstered seats, a functional trailer and that sexy booty. Find it ending soon on eBay in Beeton, Ontario currently at $2,150 with the reserve not met.
Per the Charlotte, Michigan seller, this 16-foot Donzi was completely redone over a three year period. This v-drive, yes, v-drive powered Donzi Sweet 16 has a supercharged 406 GM small block turning its prop… rapidly turning its prop. Redone in orange with a single silver stripe and silver interior, it’s not a color choice I’d have made, but it seems to work on this boat. Find it on PowerBoatListings.com with an asking price of $18,500.
I have never seen an all wood Belmont before. Typically the early Belmonts were very smooth and fast looking fiberglass over wood boats manufactured out of Fresno, California . This restored 16′ Belmont double cockpit has a very cool look to it, especially with that stern intake. Powered by a 283 cubic inch Chevrolet engine, this boat should be a screamer. It also looks like this old classic wooden Belmont boat is a v-drive. Find it on eBay in Providence, Utah with a starting bid (with reserve) of $26,000.
If I had a spare $35,000, I’d wire it over for this 1966 Formula Jr 17′ barrel back speed boat. The seller has surely spent a bundle restoring this beautiful vintage racer. New paint, new 355 GM motor, new outdrive components, new interior, new carpet, restored trailer. An all-around great looking boat that appears to need nothing. Grab it off Craig’s List in Windham, Maine for $35,000.
Have you ever seen something so ugly you end up thinking it’s cool? This 1969 Glastron Carlson Corinthian cuddy cabin might be just that. This 19′ monster is definitely odd looking. Hull registraion numbers show a previous New Jersey home but this boat now resides in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. The seller will let it go with any variety of outboard powered options including twin Mercurys, single Evinrude or even no motor. Find it on Craig’s List for $5,995 with the twin 125hp Mercs.
