This is a beautifully restored 1977 Boston Whaler 15’ Sport. This beauty is truly a one of a kind work of art. This boat was stripped completely down to the bare hull and restored in winter/spring of 2014. The outside and bottom were refinished with AlexSeal Yacht Coatings single stage polyurethane in Sea Frost color, which is a very faint light green. The interior was stripped and then coated with spray-in bed liner in a “vanilla shake” color. This turned out to be a very good idea as it provides a durable nonskid surface. This makes the boat practical and useful while maintaining a very appealing look. What truly makes this boat beautiful and unique, yet authentic is the console, bench seat, and seat rails. They were custom designed based on the original layout and then crafted from rare Honduran mahogany. The finish is 5 coats of Captains Spar varnish. It is truly a must see.
The following was all installed brand new during the restoration process;
OE style rub rail, OE style SS bow and stern lights (with LED bulbs), Minn Kota Riptide 55lb saltwater series bow mount trolling motor with quick release bracket and foot remote control, front pedestal mount and extension pole for seat, Lowrance Elite 5 DSI down scan combination GPS/sonar, interior LED courtesy lights, Johnson 1000 GPM automatic bilge pump, switch/breaker panel for lights/accessories, SS steering wheel with knob, dual SS recess mount cup holders, Tempress swivel bucket seats, Sea Star Bay Star hydraulic steering, bimini top, keel guard, SS bow guard, and a Moeller fuel/water separator/filter.
This boat is powered by a 2010 Yamaha F70 4-stroke outboard with 325 hrs on it. It is mounted on a manual jack plate and is fitted with a 18p SS Quicksilver prop. This motor is the perfect fit for this boat. It is light weight, almost completely silent, and super efficient. The boat will cruise at around 27 MPH while getting around 11 MPG! WOT is around 47 MPH depending on the load. There is an 18 gallon aluminum gas tank mounted under the seat which gives the boat a range of close to 200 miles. There is a SS remote fuel fill mounted in the bench seat and a Yamaha gauge on the dash monitors the fuel level. The Yamaha multi-function digital gauge is mounted in the dash to monitor engine vitals.
The boat comes with a new custom boat cover by T-Top Boat Covers and sits on a 2012 WESCO galvanized trailer with spare tire.
There are several pictures attached but there is an entire album of photos that were taken during the restoration process. I am the one who restored the boat so I know every detail about it. Please call/text with any questions.
