1997 Sea Ray 280 Bow Rider in Union, Illinois

Stock #188840

Great 1997 Sea Ray Two Eighty with twin 5.7 Merc Cruisers (only two owners)! Brand new vinyl on bow seats, never been sat upon, a perfect match to the original vinyl. Full bimini enclosure, bimini top, snap-on cockpit top (like new), and snap-on bow top

. Custom stainless cooler holder on stern along with Bert's Rod Track System on port and starboard stern sides.

Beautiful robust trailer purchased when the boat was brought north from Florida after the vessel was purchased from a relative.

Bottom-line, Sea Ray quality with abundant storage, and twin engines at a very affordable price.

Information On Condition

The boat is in good condition for its age, in contrast, the trailer appears to be in better condition than similar age comparisons. Graphics and outdrives show cosmetic damage due to age and prior saltwater use.
