1977 Sleekcraft Ambassador 26 High Performance in East Peoria, Illinois

Stock #227367

The Sleekcraft Ambassador 26 is a high-performance classic with 1970s style which simply cannot be matched. The Ambassador was built with living-room-style comfort and racing power and performance.

The cockpit is arranged like a large sedan with the helm on the left and wrap-around cushioned seating. The unique forward cockpit of the Ambassador opens up to the cabin entry. The groovy design allows cabin and cockpit occupants to socialize in the same space without cabin walls and hatches in the way.

Per the Owner: He upgraded the engine to a Custom 502 which has been fitted with custom stainless steel headers and hoses. The owner confirms they experience speeds of 60 MPH with the engine and Berkeley jet drive, and turn heads all the way down the lake.

Information On Condition

With only two owners since rolling off the assembly line, this Ambassador has always been stored indoors and always used in freshwater.

Dust can be seen in the photos, but the exterior, upholstery, and features of the Ambassador are in excellent condition.

The boat is in storage under her two covers until her next owner takes her away for another 40 years of enjoyment!
