1978 Sleekcraft Ambassador 26 High Performance in Lima, Ohio

Stock #249674

Start the way-back machine, this boat screams the '70s with its automobile-styled cockpit and livingroom-style cabin. The unique feature of the Ambassador is the cabin is open to the cockpit so lounging and socializing are not cut off with companionways and hatches. Very groovy!

This Sleekcraft Ambassador 26 is a rare find. It was purchased out of storage in 2020. The current owner who is a mechanic pulled the engine, rebuilt the carburetor, and installed electronic ignition. The result is a fast and highly styled sleek cruiser.

The Ambassador is powered by a 454 engine and Panther jet drive. This owner has had the boat up to 55 mph and says it will go a lot faster.

In addition to lounge seating in the cockpit and the cabin, there is a V-berth forward in the cabin for overnighting.

Information On Condition

The boat was last in the water two weeks prior to the listing. The owner confirms the 454 runs like a top and the boat's finish and upholstery are in surprisingly good shape. There is one crack in one of the seat cushions that will need attention eventually.

Time to start this one up and go!

Carburetor rebuilt and electronic ignition added in late 2020.
