Here is a nice, usable older performance boat built by a legendary manufacturer, ChrisCraft. This ChrisCraft Stinger 260 is powered by 2 350 V-8 motors with Mercruiser Alpha 1 outdrives. The Owner states that the motors were rebuilt about 20-30 hours ago, and many performance parts were added. The owner is a professional marine mechanic. He estimates that the motors now put out around 420 Horsepower each. Boat has Stainless steel Cleaver 23 pitch props that propel this boat to about 70MPH! The boat has a nice large sunpad on the back for lounging in the sun. The seating arrangement has a bench seat in the back, and a 2 person seat up front on the starboard side for the driver and a friend. The throttles are right handed controlled quicksilver brand. In the cabin area, there are 2 opposing seats and then a large V-berth that will sleep 2 people. There is a space for a portable toilet under the V-berth if you want to add one. There are several storage compartments in the cabin. The hourmeter shows 813 on the boat. This is a nice relatively inexpensive performance boat that with a little cleaning and cosmetic work, would look very nice.
This boat is in average condition for the year, but with some cleaning and TLC, would be above average. The boat has not been used much in the last 3-5 years and the boat has sat inside for the last 14 years, but needs a cover. The boat is a little dirty and dusty, but will clean up nicely. The gelcoat is slightly faded, but will wax up nicely. There are some scratches you can see in the pictures, and the gelcoat is chipped off in one picture, but should not leak. The outside really just needs a bath and a wax and it will look above average. The cabin area is pretty nice. The fabric on the seats is blue velour and it looks good. The carpet needs to be cleaned. The cockpit area is average, with only a couple of rips in the vinyl. The dashboard needs attention as the wood veneer has peeled and looks poor. The Trailer looks to need some work if hauling on the highway. The brakes are not working and the tires are showing some age. There is surface rust on the trailer, but nothing bad. The trailer would be fine with new tires and brakes fixed.
