Good looking boat. Big fan of the color combination - exactly what i'd like next one to look like.

Just my honest opinions--

Very nice boat to be sure...

$30 large, too much for a 15 year old US built 24' boat, even a Cobalt. We paid $34k for our 1 year older Regal 3 years ago...

2 owners and "159 engine hours (total), and "61 hours on engine"... sounds like a new engine at some point... OK, but not sure why a 'meticulously cared for' boat would need a new engine at 98 hours, could be a good reason I suppose, but why wasn't the engine bay at least cleaned up for the ad pics...? Now, the last thing I'll ever be accused of is being meticulous (until I sell something wink ), but I cleaned the engine room up in our Chap with just a damp rag...

Cobalt at 159 hours, the Chap at 477 hours:

I spotted the engine hour discrepancy also. Could this be one of those scams we saw so much of a couple years ago?

Sounds like the ad was written by a salesman or broker. Looks very "professional". Directed to the first time or naive boater? Can't believe everything the seller or his agent says.


Have a great day of boating

I didn't look that closely at the ad. Good catch.

Doubt it's a scam. Usually those are priced better to get greed and urgency going. Could be wrong though.

I wonder what Formula is doing that adds 1,200 lbs to the same size boat. My 240 is 24' center line and weighs 5,000 lbs. idn
