Category: Runabouts

Condition: Used Year: 2002
Make: Boston Whaler

This Boston Whaler 130 Sport was originally owned by the University of Tennessee Women's Rowing Team.  When I bought it in 2012 it had less than 50 hours on the motor according to their logs.  I put no more than 20 hours on it and the boat has been only rarely used since selling our lake house in 2015.  This is a fast, fun, reliable, safe boat in great condition.It is powered by a 40 HP, four stroke, fuel injected Mercury with a Stingray hydrofoil to get on a plane quickly without sacrificing top speed.  It has a Bimini top from Great Lakes Top Company, and a fitted Westland full cover (not shown). Included are two three-gallon fuel tanks, a fire extinguisher, and boat hook.  It has an Exide Obital Deep Cycle battery and battery box.  Also included but not shown is a spare tire for the trailer and a Danforth anchor, chain, and rope.  The trailer is equipped with C.E. Smith lighted post guide-ons.The hull has two minor repaired dings in the gell coat as shown in the photo. The boat is in very good condition, but could use a good powerwash and wax.  The seats are a bit grungy from storage but should clean up with a little effort.  They are standard seats from West Marine. The tach occasionally jumps around a bit, so there is probably a loose connection somewhere.  This boat has never been in salt water and was always stored on  a lift or on the trailer.This boat is an acknowledged classic featuring the Boston Whaler "unsinkable" unibond construction and a twin sponson hull for stability and superior performance.  It is remarkably stable in rough water for a boat of this size.  The boat is located near Knoxville, Tennessee.
