This is an excellent family weekend cruiser or a day fishing vessel for you and your buddies to tame the big water or for inland lakes. This Pacemaker was meticulously restored here in our shop as it was an excellent candidate needing only some upholstering and some TLC added and upgrading such as the batteries and shore power charging system. The engine was new so the only thing it needed was upgraded ignition for reliability and a new carb as it had dried out from sitting. All belts and hoses were replaced and new cushions and kick panels on the fly-bridge. New carpet throughout to give you that new vessel feel.  This boat is ready to add your electronics and go fishing it has a Ritchie compass on the bridge. We are offering free delivery to the south coast of Lake Erie and delivery every where else for a small fee.  We have in hand a current survey valuing this boat at over 8K. we have priced it at a fraction of that for a quick sale and plan to make your purchase an easy one. we can deliver and sit in your driveway or directly to your marina. Clean Ohio title in hand. Complete enclosure included. If visiting in person, can hear run you will not be disappointed! New zincs, new steering cable, new batteries two years ago, new charging system, new pertronics ignition, new plugs wires, cap, rotor, belts and hoses. Runs out strong and idles like  a dream. If you are looking for a great seaworthy family or fishing vessel this is it. It is not new but it compares with the 20 - 30 K boats at a fraction of the cost. Has a stand up head, and no fridge or stove installed. They were gone when we got it and we camped at the lake so we didn't use the sink or head.  I have a freshwater tank to go with it but it is not installed. Three hundred feet new anchor rope and a windlass. The wood could use a new coat of teak oil or urethane.Comes with a new fm stereo from west marine with the speakers in the kick panels. You won't find a beauty like this for this kind of money.  For sale locally and elsewhere so we reserve the right to end auction early. Please do not bid if you are unable to complete the purchase, we have wasted a ton of time on people that want this boat and can not finish the sale. Thanks for looking and bid with confidence. Any questions at all please email me, Thanks again. John

I will accept Paypal ONLY if YOU pay the fees! If not, I will accept a bank check or postal money order, holding the vessel until funds clear my bank and if you wish to use your credit card use it through Paypal to get your points, but remember you have to click the fees box on your end so that you send the correct amount. Please ask questions as this is an auction for a used item, all sales final and please check my feedback. Thanks again, and happy bidding.

Hi, a couple questions to clarify; 

The enclosure is the fly bridge enclosure as seen in the pictures. 

There is a set of trim tabs on the vessel installed from the factory I believe, Bennett I think. 
The swim platform we installed and is teak as is the pulpit.

Most have commented that boats this size don't usually come with a trailer, the pictures with the trailer are to show the condition of the hull. If I deliver this vessel I will use this trailer. It is an E Z Loader roller galvanized trailer. It is in good shape but it needs tires and the brake like is broken. I only haul with it a few miles at a time so I don't have a problem using it. The lights are good and it pulls well but the tires hold one back from big trips with the dry rotting. It CAN be bought if you purchase the Pacemaker for an extra $2000 if you need a trailer. (there is a similar one on ebay now for $3850) 

 I will help you as much as I can, If you want this boat dropped at the marina on blocks, in your drive, trailer and all delivered or pick up boat and or trailer here at our facility. 
Thanks again for looking and thanks for the questions, John
