1979 American Mariner 7.5

  • This boat is in beautiful condition and has had quite a few customizations made to it making it quite unique. With some groceries, new batteries, and an outboard motor of your choice this beautiful boat is ready to sail off for the weekend. This boat has much love put into it but i can no longer store it in my mothers driveway. Give me a call with any questions you may have.

    I would be willing to sell this boat without the trailer.

    I have a full size truck so i can deliver virtually anywhere for a reasonable fee.
