1980 Formula One Thunderbird Boat 17ft.  485 Mercruiser 4 Cylinder    For sale is a 1980 Formula One Thunderbird boat.  This boat is just about in perfect condition and is a collector's item for any Formula boat enthusiast.  This is a very rare model Formula and an even more rare color.  I get compliments everywhere I go with this boat.  I am just the second owner of this boat and to my understanding it was garage kept the majority of its life and has been garage kept ever since I've taken ownership of the boat.  The interior and exterior is in great shape and looks next to new.  The only thing I would say is that the gold pin striping could use some touching up in a few places.  The majority of the interior on this boat is fiberglass with no carpeting which makes this boat a REALLY easy boat to keep clean and maintain.  There is no cabin in this boat but has TONS of space under the bow of the boat for tubes, skis, and coolers.  I also will be including some older ski's with a ski holder brackets that easily are attached to the back of the boat.  Next up is the power train.  This boat has a Mercruiser 485 4 cylinder inboard/outboard power train which may not sound like much but I can assure you packs a punch on this boat.  I have been able to get this boat up 60mph and definitely has enough power to pull skiers or tubers with ease.  A brand new battery is included as well.  The one thing this boat will need is a stereo head unit.  All the power, wires, and speakers are wired in but the head unit I had in it went out and it was never replaced so it'll be a very simple fix.  Last is the trailer.  The trailer is in very good condition all around and looks really good with this boat on top of it.  It uses a 2 inch ball and all the lights are in working order.  I also wanted to mention I do have one waterproof snap on cover that will cover all the interior and windshield and I also have a almost brand new custom dust cover that covers the upper portion of the boat.  If you're looking for a boat in good condition, that stands out on the water and has the reliability of a new boat, this is your boat. Still tons of time left in this season and this boat is ready to drop in the water.    If you have any questions feel free to ask.   Happy Bidding.
