1987 17' Alumacraft with 1992 115hp Suzuki Outboard - SOLD!

6 posts in this topic

For Sale!

1987 17' Alumacraft with 1992 115hp Suzuki Outboard. This is an excellent Deep-V fishing boat with enough horsepower to easily pull a skier. The boat comes with everything you need to launch today! Here is a summary of what you get:

- 1987 Alumicraft Trophy 170 (Walk-Through Console, Livewell, In-Floor Storage)

- 1992 115hp Suzuki 2-Stroke Oil-Injected Engine (Includes Additional Oil)

- 12 Volt MinnKota Mag-36, 36 Pound 5-Speed Trolling Motor

- Eagle "MagnaView" Depth/Fish Finder

- Trailer with Lifetime License and Spare Tire

- 3 Alumacraft Pedestal Seats

- Canvas Bimini Top

- AM/FM/Cassette Radio

- Full-Length Storage Cover

- Deep Cycle Marine Trolling Motor Battery

- Deep Cycle / Cranking Starting Battery

- Fire Extinguisher

- Navigation and Anchor Lights

- Anchor, Line, and Spool

- 2 Life Vests

- Rod Holders

- Bilge

The Good: I have had this boat out on the Mississippi River, St. Croix River, Lake Minnetonka, Big Marine Lake, as well as numerous other "big water" lakes in the area, and have never had a problem. The engine was tuned up in 2002 by the Suzuki Dealer and I had new seals and impeller put in the Lower Unit last spring. The prop (Aluminum) is a few years old and is in excellent shape. The tires were replaced in the Spring of 2003.

The So-so: The carpet is in rough shape in a few areas but the deck is solid all around. The included life vests are a bit ugly (camo) and the trailer has some rust.

Feel free to contact me by e-mail or at 651-226-3504 (cell phone). I am located in South Maplewood (just East of St. Paul, MN).

I couldn't figure out how to add pictures, so here is a link to my Craigslist add (with pictures):

"Congrats on the fast sale. I don't know of a boat that has sold in less than 24hrs before."

Thanks! I listed it on Craiglist on the evening of the 29th and here the next day (had to wait for the payment approval). I was amazed at the response, I started getting calls on the 29th and had five appointments set up by the end of the day on the 30th!

My only suggestions to this site would be to have auto-payment processing (for us evening posters) and maybe some detailed instructions on how to upload photos. I have seen several posts where photos have been requested but it appears that the lister did not know how to post them. Otherwise, keep up the good work! The forums are awesome!!!

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
