1968 BOSTON WHALER CLASSIC 16’ NAUSET CENTER CONSOLE, one family owned boat, completely restored in Michigan with loving care to its original specifications and like new condition finally completed in 2009. This is a true, one of a kind, special boat for a one of a kind special buyer out there. All documentation proving that it is a one owner boat as well as all receipts for restoration available. Powered by a brand new 2006 Johnson 70hp four stroke (made by Suzuki), still in the break in period (under 10 hours) and has never been dipped in salt water. It includes 2 built in 6 gallon tanks. This is the perfect marriage of modern propulsion technology and the timeless beauty of a forty two year old Boston Whaler that looks as new as the motor.
The Magic Tilt trailer is estimated by Magic Tilt as being around a 1961trailer (no visible serial numbers), one of the first real tilt trailers they ever made. The owner took the chassis down to clean metal (galvanized by the way) and painted it Imron to match the boat. Even the trailer wiring is encapsulated in sealed PVC pipe with heat shrink connections and tinned wire. Trailer has poly board on the bunks, new axle, hubs, wheels and tires as well as winch and tongue jack, LED lights, lighted guide posts, new Stoltz rollers and hardware, and a covered spare tire. No details were overlooked in this complete restoration project.
The exterior has new gel coat (not paint), a new rub rail and new graphics. The interior got 4 coats of Boston Whaler Blue Awlgrip. The console as well as all Mahogany work is an EXACT duplicate of the original, painstakingly made piece by piece out of Mahogany using the old parts as a template. All wood is Mahogany throughout and all hinges and fasteners are solid brass.
All boat hardware is original and is 316 stainless steel right down to every screw. The Berber carpet in the rear cockpit area is snap in and can be removed in a flash to go fishing.
The bimini top and boot are brand new as well as the Cuda 350 mapping GPS/fishfinder combo. All cables, wiring and battery are new. Also includes new Taylor Made boat cover, console cover and mooring cover. This is a Michigan boat stranded in Florida. Owner just didn't have the heart to splash it in salt water and fish it. It turned out too nice to use. Don't miss this one for you Whaler collection or take this turn key boat fishing tomorrow. Note: Words and pictures cannot describe the attention to detail, craftsmanship and passion that went into this project. As I said before this is a one family owned boat and therefore a family project to be proud of.
