1997 Cobalt 253 Cruiser in O'fallon, Missouri

Stock #253645

This beautiful freshwater boat has been family-owned since 1997 and is well maintained. The owner even went to the factory to watch the boat get built! It will be bittersweet for this family to see it go, but they bought a newer Cobalt boat.

This boat has a cover, a Bimini, life jackets, lines and bumpers, a cuddy cabin with a porta-potty, stove, stereo, and a couch/bed. No generator or A/C, but with nice weather days it would be comfortable enough for sleeping, two people.

The trailer has great tires with surge brakes.

She is sitting on a trailer ready to go to her new home.

Information On Condition

She is in very good condition, well maintained, stored inside a building. Hardly any chips in the gelcoat. Had the engine removed a couple of years ago to check the valves, replace the oil pan, etc. Several years ago they put stainless marine headers on and added Amsoil's oil bypass filters as well. The filters alone hold 2.5 gallons of oil! They claim it is equivalent to having an oil change every 10 hours or so.

Approximate boat location: O'fallon, Missouri
