1996 Thunderbird 280SS for sale


THIS FORMULA IS IN GREAT CONDITION WITH ALL MAJOR SYSTEMS REBUILT OR NEW....THE BOAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN FRESH WATER BOAT, FIRST LAKE GEORGE,NY THEN SINCE 2014 LAKE NORMAN, NC. THE ENGINE IS SINGLE I/O 454/300HP MERCCRUISER. DURING WINTER OF 2015-2016 THE MOTOR WAS REBUILT USING ONLY THE BEST PARTS AND HORSEPOWER WAS INCREASED TO 500HP..... AT THE SAME TIME THE LOCAL SEA RAY DEALER REMOVED THE BRAVO OUTDRIVE, REPLACED THE BELLOWS AND OTHER WORN PARTS. THEY ALSO INSTALLED ALL NEW GAUGES HOUR METER FOR THE NEW MOTOR. THE MOTOR CURRENTLY HAS 41 HOURS ON THE REBUILD AND PERFORMS FLAWLESSLY. THE STEERING GEAR CABLES WERE REPLACED AS WAS THE FRESH WATER PUMP. IT WAS UPGRADED FROM GPM TO GPM, SO NOW THERE IS MUCH BETTER WATER PRESSURE...THE OUTDRIVE IS BRAVO DUO PROP AND CURRENT PROPS ARE STAINLESS CUPPED 28 PITCH. THE BOAT WILL DO 30 MPH 3000RPM AND TOPS OUT AT 43 MPH...IT COULD GO 55 MPH IF YOU CHANGED THE PROPS...... THE BOAT WEIGHS IN AT 8000LBS. WITH ALL TANKS FULL.. FUEL TANK HOLDS 120 GALS., WATER TANK HOLDS 30 GALS. THE SEAT UPHOLSTERY IS IN PERFECT CONDITION, AND THE COCKPIT COVER IS YEAR OLD... IN ADDITION TO THE SHORE POWER THERE ARE NEW INTERSTATE BATTERIES AND DELTRAN BATTERY TENDERS. THE STEREO SYSTEM HAS BEEN REPLACED AND THE MARINE RADIO WORKS PERFECTLY. THERE IS ALSO NEW GPS UNIT WITH THE INLAND LAKES CHIP IN IT. THE SWIM PLATFORM HAS ITS OWN SHOWER.... THERE IS ALSO FULL CAMPER CANVAS FOR THE BOAT, 12 LIFE JACKETS AND MANY OTHER EXTRAS....THE BIMINI TOP IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.... THE CUDDY CABIN CAN SLEEP ADULTS. THE TRIAXLE TRAILER HAS 3-3500 LB AXLES, ONE WITH DISC BRAKES.... THERE ARE NEW TIRES WITH MAG WHEELS.....THERE ARE MANY RECEIPTS FOR ALL THE WORK DONE....THERE IS SINK STORAGE IN THE SEATING AREA. THERE IS ALSO POWER ENGINE HATCH COVER CONTROLLED FORM THE DASH BOARD..... MOST IMPORTANT... WHEN THE BOAT WAS BROUGHT TO NORTH CAROLINA THE BOTTOM WAS SCRAPPED AND NEW EXPOXY/VC SYSTEM WAS APPLIED TO THE BOTTOM AT COST OF $2800. IF THE BOAT STAYS IN FRESH WATER THIS WILL NEVER NEED TO BE DONE AGAIN......THERE IS ALSO SPECIAL SWIM PLATFORM LADDER IN ADDITION TO THE FACTORY LADDER....IT IS MUCH EASIER TO CLIMB THAN THE SMALL FACTORY LADDER.....

THE BOAT IS AN EXCELLENT STARTER BOAT, NOT TO BIG TO HANDLE BUT ROOMY ENOUGH FOR BIG FAMILY OR 10 PEOPLE..... PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS THRU THE EBAY SYSTEM.......I MAY BE ABLE TO DELIVER THE BOAT REASONABLE DISTANCE TO YOU DEPENDING ON HOW FAR YOU ARE FROM THE CHARLOTTE AREA OF NORTH CAROLINA... WILL TRY TO WORK THAT OUT FOR SERIOUS BUYERS...... THERE ARE RECEIPTS FOR THE
WORK COMPLETED.....
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE YEAR OF THE BOAT, IT LOOKS LIKE FAIRLY NEW BOAT. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN MAINTAINED IN TOP CONDITION. ALSO, ASK ANY BOAT GUY ABOUT THE FORMULA REPUTATION..... THEY ARE VERY HIGH QUALITY BOATS AND RIDE LIKE LUXURY CAR.... THEY ARE NOT LIGHT AND THE DEEP HULL MAKE IT PERFORM AMAZINGLY.....YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED AND AT THIS POINT THE BOAT NEEDS NOTHING AND IS READY FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON......
THE ONLY REASON FOR SELLING IS THAT WANT BIGGER FORMULA, HOPEFULLY BEFORE THIS SEASON STARTS.....
*********************IMPORTANT NOTE:  IF YOU WILL USE THE BOAT ON LAKE NORMAN THIS SEASON, WILL LET YOU USE MY SLIP IN DAVIDSON AT NORTH HARBOR CLUB FOR FREE. THAT WILL SAVE YOU $3500 THIS YEAR AND YOU MAY USE IT TILL FEBRUARY 28, 2021 ******************************************************************************
