| For Sale By: || Dealer || Nice classic 1959 Starcraft aluminum and wood runabout 15' boat. It has a 1959 Evinrude 33HP 2 cycle 2 cylinder outboard motor. The boat was restored in the late 90's and not used much and I have recently improved it in any areas it needed. Might not be museum quality but really nice overall. The hull is heavy aluminum (original) which is very durable. It's made to run up on a sand or gravel bar. The motor and drive was checked last fall at a local boat repair shop. Compression is even in both cylinders. Runs good for an old Evinrude. It's not a speed boat, but will go 25 mph or so. Original speedometer not working, just needs a pickup. It's an easy job but I never got to it. The windshield is not original, it is acrylic, manufactured by Polyfab of Springfield, Mo.
The boat has been run on Table Rock lake just twice this past summer. Always starts right up, idles good, runs good. Not as smooth and quiet as the newer outboards, but was I told by the mechanic that this how these older motors run. The boat can turn on a dime, and handles well. I've not had more than 2 people on the boat but It handles the small wakes nicely; I don't take it in rough water.
I added a few modern conveniences like a Pioneer am/fm/cd player and some led lights; cool looking at night. The trailer is a 1997 Shorelander with good tires and a fold-away tongue. Does not take up much room in the garage. The boat is small enough to pull with a truck or car. It is about 14' 8" long, a little extra with the engine. This boat gets lots of attention!
Starcraft has been making boats and travel trailers for well over 100 years. I would look at some trades, but not sure how that would work on this site. I am a car dealer not a boat dealer. This is my personal boat, just something I've been playing with for a couple of years. I realize it will not bring enough money to cover all my time and expense and that of the previous owner. If you are looking for a vintage, 1 of a kind boat, this is a good one, and lot cheaper than you could restore yourself. If you are close enough to come and see the boat before you bid send me a message and we will arrange it.
TITLE: I have 3 Missouri titles all free and clear (boat, motor, and trailer)
PAYMENT: $500 deposit to be paid within 24 hours of the end of the listing.
DELIVERY: I would tow this boat free for 150 mile radius from zip code 65721. Otherwise Buyer pickup, it's an easy tow.
