Well loved 2005 glastron 175 mx with 135hp Volvo penta SX and mackay trailer.  We have owned it for 6 years. Handles beautifully with its deep v hull and power steering.New motor with 9.2 hrs only serviced last spring at 4.3 hours, not even run in yet, no tow sports have been performed behind new motor as needs 10hours to be run in and tow.Battery is kept on a float level charger and motor is run and flushed every 3-4 weeks on the hose.Spent well over $10,000 in last 2 years re-powering boat and overhauing trailer.  I have got all the receipts to prove and full service / repair history dating back to 2010 when we bought the boat. If anything has ever needed fixing, it has been done and always done by the same mechanics at Como marina since we've owned it. See and hear motor running on video I have just taken (sorry about poor video quality I'm no videographer) on Youtube Boat has always been flushed wth salt-x salt neutraliser, washed cleaned and lubricated after every usage and stored under a cover. We have spent $1000s on extras to make our days on the water more fun and safe.  We planned on keeping it forever, but having a new child who doesn't like the boat and a son who has sport every weekend now, last summer we discovered we just don't have the time to use it and sadly need to let it go to someone else who will.Trailer registered until December, boat registered until if you want more photosBoat can be inspected Saturday morning, Sunday arvo, week days potentially with enough warning.General condition of boat is consistent with that of an 11yo boat that has been well looked after, with out cosmetic restoration it has a few blemishes as you'd expect for its age, but we have priced it  accordingly.You bid to buy, not to inspect, so I suggest you come take a look before you leap or I will report you as a nonpaying bidder.Payment required within one week of auction close (I can hold boat in yard longer with payment if requested), No PayPal or personal cheques.  We will only accept direct deposit, cash or bank cheques and you will have to wait until I have cleared funds in my account before I release the boat.  Sorry, but have seen too many scams from counterfeit cheques / cash and online payment roughts. If you give me cash or a bank cheque I will take it to the bank and if it checks out you can take the boat within 30 mins.Full details belowFollowing replaced when boat was repowered:-

Other extras the boat / trailer has:-

1 x Jerry can holder and 20lt jerry can on trailerSpare volvo 3 blade 21"pitch propellor (I bought a Volvo 4 blade 19" pitch and fitted it for $900 - 4 blade is better for tow sports as it lets boat rev quicker and get up on the plane quicker at the sacrifice of top speed and some fuel economy, 21"3 blade is better for top speed and fuel economy) we never drove the boat fast as we have little kids so top speed didn't matter wakeboarding only needs you to go 28kmh-ish
