Hey NUTTZ. So the day has come. No kids at home. Downsizing to a condo in Vegas. Nowhere to easily keep a boat. These all add up to one conclusion: it's time to sell.
1977 21' Tahiti with V-hull. Ford 460. Since I bought it I've had the impeller replaced with a new one, and also replaced the starter motor and alternator. Runs like a dream. At least during the time I've owned it it's never been stored at below-freezing temperatures. Brand new custom-made UV-resistant cover too. I have a pdf version of the Hardin Marine engine manual I can email to you.
Trailer is also 1977 and re-bunked last summer. The combo is light enough to tow with a V-6 if you have front-wheel drive for when you pull the boat out of the water (the sudden transfer of weight from the water to the trailer always made my RWD SUV's tires spin out, so of course I needed to go buy a Titan. Duh, right?). Trailer Tires were replaced and are pretty low-mileage.
Anyway, pics and video below. Some pics are from when I bought the boat but everything looks the same except for the addition of a small teak deck on the transom with a fold-up ladder. I'll add fresher pics once I get it out of winter storage. Just had the boat detailed for the new season. I didn't shoot the video so I don't know what's up with the sound but she purrs like a kitten. Laddie's been on board, just ask him!
The NADA book only goes back to 1979 and says something comparable is $7900 for just the boat and trailer. I'm asking $8500 obo for everything including about $2000 worth of skis, tubes, ropes, toys, and the teak deck.
So far you NUTTZ are the only ones I'm advertising to. The boat is stored in Lindon right now and I can take you out on Utah Lake by appointment.
Contact me by private message if you're interested, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org . On May 1st it goes out on KSL.com and to the full VJB forum.
Man, writing this was harder than I thought it was going to be...
