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.

Also, per the seller on engine hours - I can definitely understand potential buyers concern with the hours. Placing myself in their shoes, I would definitely be nervous that we (as the owners), are noticing engine troubles and we're trying to dump it before something happens. This is definitely not true. Our only reason for selling it, was we wanted something a little bigger and our new one is more accommodating for the kids/grandkids and their water sports. I personally had the boat out the last time it was on the water at Table Rock Lake for our vacation. I can say with confidence, our boat has several more seasons left in it. As long as the new owner(s) don't plan on running it in a 12 hour top speed race. The engine and out drive are both as strong today as they were on the first day we bought it. The boat was parked in our workshop it's whole life so maintenance was always easy as my dad and I are in there every day. Anytime we have a free moment, we both would tinker around with it. It was never neglected. I would be happy to talk to any potential buyer(s) in further detail if they would like!
