This is a NO RESERVE! Auction


The Boat will absolutely be sold to the highest bidder!


Here is a good looking Cruisers Aft Cabin that is in very good overall condition for the year. The hull is sound and the decks are solid. It has a roomy aft cabin, a very large forward V Berth and a convertible dinette with galley. It also has a fully enclosed head with shower. Needs new Porta Potty (cost $79 at West Marine)


The upper deck seating is good. The cabin interior is in very good condition. The canvas and deck carpets are almost new.


We had the engine and outdrive checked over. It runs very well with good compression. There is no hour meter but the owners stated that it had little use. We have a video of the engine running, email for a link. The boat was owned by 2 women in their 60's who used it mainly as a weekend live aboard.


Overall it just needs a light detailing and a fresh coat of bottom paint. This boat can be launched and run today.


This would make a great family boat. It has all the room and conveniences you need plus the power to pull skiers or water toys. It is very easy to operate and economical to run.


Included is a good heavy duty dual axle galvanized roller trailer similar to the one pictured. We towed it for several miles with no problems. It has a 4 prong flat electric plug for the lights and accommodates a 2 inch ball. As always, we will check the lights and grease the bearings before you leave to insure a safe trip home.


This boat was gifted to the American Children’s Society and they have authorized us to sell it for them with NO RESERVE.


The boat will be sold to the highest bidder regardless of price!




This is a NO RESERVE! Auction


The Boat will absolutely be sold to the highest bidder!


We are doing our part to make this an easy transaction. The auction is for 3 days only and there is no reserve. This boat will positively be sold for the highest bid. We have done our best to picture and describe everything as we see it. PLEASE, do your part and try to view the boat or have it professionally inspected before you bid. This is a final AS-IS sale. Once the boat leaves our dealership there will absolutely be no adjustments. Please understand this and bid accordingly.


I’m being as honest as I can with the description. As always, we would highly recommend your viewing this boat before bidding. The pictures are accurate. I don’t want any beefs. So, you have two ways of buying this:


Buy it as you see it in the pictures

                   (call or email if you need more info)


           Call from 9am to 10pm 7 days a week at  732-616-4112


Or come and see it in person before bidding.

             (always recommended)



Either way is fine with me, but remember, this is a Final AS-IS Sale and winning bidder will be expected to follow through with no exceptions.


Boat is available for inspection 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM Monday thru Saturday at:


Marlboro Motors

            42 North Main Street

            Marlboro, NJ  07746  (Monmouth County)


    Sunday by appointment only:   call 732-616-4112



For info or directions call:


              Jeff at 732-616-4112    



We have been overwhelmed lately with bidders who seem to get amnesia after they buy something, so if you’re not serious please let your wife hold the mouse!






Winning bidder will be required to give an $800 non-refundable deposit immediately at the close of the auction. Balance is due in 3 days.


If you are the winning bidder…. please call me at


As soon as the auction ends.



We accept:     Credit Cards


                       Certified Checks

                       Cashiers Checks

                       Money Orders

                       Cash in Person

Balance must be paid in 72 hours.


 We would appreciate the unit being picked up as soon as possible but we will try to accommodate your needs if more time is required. We can store it for a short time until you make your arrangements.
