Formula 272 SR1

I found this boat on eBay, and was surprised to find that it's in the same cove as me!.  I could actually swim over to it faster than driving all the way around the cove to get to the other side.  Here's the seller's description on eBay:
Vehicle Description

1987 Twin Engine Formula - 272 SR1
Vehicle Description


We purchased this Formula boat almost 4 years ago at Lake Ozarks, MO.  The boat was owned by Advanced Marine and they have done all of the maintenance on it.  We wanted to buy an older, good, reliable boat for our two college-aged sons to learn how to drive a twin engine boat.  The deal was if they took excellent care of it, we would buy the boat and buy the gas for their use.  I am very proud to say that they have done just that.  It was wiped off whenever they put it on the lift and covered when done with it.  We now want to upgrade to a newer boat so we would like to sell this one. 

We have recently been looking at some used boats ourselves and I have not found one that is any cleaner than ours!!!  We had the interior re-upholstered after we purchased the boat.  The carpets were not the best in the boat so we removed them and scrubbed the bottom floor.  We also upgraded the boat with two new Formula manufactured bolsters to match the original color theme for 1987. 

This boat has approx. 600 hrs. on the hull but approx. 100 hrs. on the engines.  Two new factory re-built engines were purchased and replaced three years ago.  It has a cockpit canvas cover, stainless steel props, trim tabs, docking lights, dual switch battery, Merc-Alpha1 outdrives and more.  Weight is 5,750 lbs.  We live at the Lake of the Ozarks as full-time residents so the boat was always on a lift and under a covered roof dock.

Any minor problems we had with the boat were fixed immediately by Advanced Marine and I have all the paperwork for your review.

This is a smoke-free boat and was always waxed every spring.  With an older boat there are a few minor scratches on it but with routine waxes they show very little.

This heavy, easy-riding boat has been a lot of fun for our family.  I know it would make a great boat for you too.  We are interested in the buyer picking up the boat for delivery.  We do not have a trailer so the listed starting price is for the boat only.

We will be available for you to come see the boat, just contact us first and we'll schedule a time that works for you.

Hope you will purchase!

10/2.  I hear the sellers start up the boat and walk down to my dock to wait for delivery.  Amazing that they're in the same cove.  They'll be able to see their old boat from here on.
