1997 Checkmate 253 Convincor High Performance in Pensacola, Florida

Stock #169173

A beautiful example of a well maintained Checkmate 253 that's been cared for throughout its life.

The boat came from a freshwater lake up north and had been enjoyed by two generations of family members since it was new. It was purchased and transported down to the Gulf Coast three years ago and has been inside rack stored.

The cabin has a hidden porta potty, filler cushions, twin facing seats with a table, lighting and storage.

Comfortable racing bolsters are port and starboard and there is a three-person aft bench seat.

There is a large aft sun pad over the engine compartment cover, which operates with an electric actuator.

For music, a Sony stereo with 2 amps and 2 subwoofers keeps it lively.

Power is supplied by a Mercruiser 502 Magnum MPI engine that produces 415 HP and runs through a Bravo One outdrive that has an outdrive shower and stainless prop.

Thru transom exhaust makes the dockside rumble fun.

A full swim platform with telescopic ladder and beverage holders makes it easy to board.

A bow cover is included that is separate from the cockpit cover that's pictured.

A tandem axle trailer is included and the seller reports that it was just serviced, has new tires and a PowerWinch.

Information On Condition

The boat shows extremely well for its age.

The upholstery is in nice condition and no rips or tears were noticed and the gel coat is very well maintained and shiny. The engine compartment looks great.

I accidentally dropped my phone in the bilge and it slipped under the engine. Once it was retrieved, it was not gunked up with oil.

The cabin interior looks nice and no leaks were noticed.

Seller reports that the exhaust manifolds and risers were replaced in 2015.

The alternator and raw water pump were recently replaced. Seller states that he has service receipts for regular maintenance performed.
