1989 Eliminator 232 Tunnel High Performance in Orange Park, Florida

Stock #135511

So, how do you build a street rod for the water? You start with an all new, built from the block up, big block Chevy 477CID HI-performance motor built by Gary Johns, Northeast Florida's oldest and best-known hi-performance specialist. With 620 HP and 644# of torque.

You mount this monster motor to extra heavy-duty motor mounts in a capable tunnel hull Eliminator whose deck and sub-deck have been completely rebuilt and reinforced, stern to bow, to handle the added stress put on the boat by this massive power plant.

Next, you turn your creation over to the folks at Direct Connection Marine - High-Performance Specialists in Jacksonville, FL to add all the extra's to draw out the boat potential. Things like:

-- Separate Holly Fuel Pumps (one for each fuel tank);
-- Keith Ikler exhaust system;
-- Hardin Marine Fuel Filters;
-- Custom Port & Polished Heads;
-- Huge Oil Cooler:
-- 850 Quick Fuel Carb;
-- Custom built Bravo 1 outdrive gear cooler;
-- Street Fire CDI Multi-Spark Ignition.

You then load the cockpit with racing bucket seats, a Hot Foot throttle, a tilt steering wheel with a custom-built power tilt/trim switch so your hands never have to leave the wheel, a beautiful set of Hardin Marine Gauges including a GPS speedometer, new carpet, and a Clarion AM/FM/CD Marine stereo system with 4 speakers.

Load all this onto a Metal Craft trailer custom built for this tunnel hull configuration - completely overhauled with new paint, new springs, new wheels and tires (including the spare), and all new wiring and LED lighting - and this 23-foot rocket ship is ready to rock and roll.

Information On Condition

Personal Observation from the local Rep: I've been boating for 50 years, and this is the fastest I've ever gone in a boat (90 mph at 5300 rpm), yet this boat was stable and secure throughout. It was agile and responsive and felt like it had been machined out of single block of steel.

If speed is your passion but safety and security are paramount concerns you're going to love this boat.

There are a few minor cosmetic repairs that could be done to this boat to make it as "premo" appearance wise as it is mechanically and operationall...
