This is a no reserve auction for a 1982 Checkmate 17ft Diplomat bow-rider with a 1987 Suzuki 115 and Shorlander trailer. The trailer shown is included in the sale.   The engine needs work so please read the entire description before bidding.  We are listing this boat for a third party and representing it in completely as-is condition with NO reserve.  Please read the ad and view the pictures carefully as this boat will be sold to whoever has the high bid at auctions end. We have included 118 large pictures below the ad  description to show you as much detail as possible as well as a description of condition.  Our description of condition is based on a brief and casual inspection and is only to help you decide its value.  You are welcome to inspect the boat in person if you wish to do so.  It is located in Old Saybrook Ct, 06475 and is available anytime by appointment.

This boat mostly needs engine work .  The previous owner said that he had engine problems and brought it to a service shop.  They said that it had a cylinder head gasket problem and removed the head.  The owner decided not to do the repairs and it remains as is and taken apart.  The engine cranks over fine and the cylinders look to have some light rust in them but no scoring that we noticed.  It is not seized and actually cranks over perfectly well.  The owner never got the head back from the shop so it is not included.  The power trim works great and it otherwise looks fairly clean.  The lower unit shifts into forward and reverse well and there is a polished stainless prop included.  There is no battery included so we hooked up our jump box and the gauges, bilge pump and bow light all worked.  Cosmetically the boat could use a buff/wax and cleaning but the gel coat is not badly scratched or gouged.  There is moderate sun fading in the metal flake in some areas but still looks pretty sharp in my opinion.  The upholstery has some issues as shown in the pictures.  The rear back seat is missing as it was very rotted and thrown out.  The helm seats are in useable condition.  Structurally the transom is rock solid and the decks are firm in the cockpit other than the bilge area behind the rear seat.  The wood is rotted on the deck in the bilge area and will need to be replaced (see pics).  The carpet is in okay shape and overall the boat is very original with a ton of potential. 

The trailer is in serviceable shape although we are unsure if the lights work.  The frame, axle, and springs are quite rusty but seem to be in solid shape. The tires hold air well and the bearings seam fine. We towed this boat to our shop over 140 miles with no problems.  I would recommend replacing the tires before a long trip as some areas are heavily dry rotted. 

The pictures are current and the boat is being sold as is in the condition shown.  You are welcome to come to our shop and inspect the boat anytime before auctions end.  We are located in Old Saybrook, Connecticut and open by appointment. 

 We have state of Connecticut supplemental Q-1 bill of sale for the boat and nothing for the trailer.  The previous owner moved and could not find the originals.  We can get you a new registration for the boat for $85.00 if your state requires one.  The trailer we can only give you a bill of sale for and nothing else.  Please do not bid if these terms do not work for you.

Pay-Pal deposit of $100.00 is required within 24 hours of auctions close.

The boat will need to be paid for in full and picked up within one week of auction ending unless you have made other arrangements with us.  We are available to deliver it anywhere for $2.50 per hauled mile if needed.  Please feel free to contact us by e-mail or call (860)510-2623 with any questions.   The auction will end on Thursday night at 9:45pm EST.  Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!
