2001 Formula 260 SS,Only one meticulous owner, and I am motivated to sell. This trailer boat has to be seen to be appreciated. I have about 30 pics for interested buyers. Since 2001 it has been in my barn for about 9 months each year, and covered on a trailer when not in use for the other 3 months. It has the 375hp FWC Merc Bravo 3 unit with a Garmin chartplotter, VHF, and Garmin fishfinder included.Two summers ago the engine temperature went up 3 degrees so I had the manifolds and transom assembly replaced. That's how committed I am to maintaining this vessel. I also installed a Racor fuel filter as a precaution against fuel problems. It has a fair amount of hours on it but at least 60% of the hours were spent at idle while trolling for fish. It still runs a strong 53 mph as per the GPS, as it did when new. I installed an outdrive switch and a hose outlet on the swim platform to facilitate flushing and cleaning. It was used quite a bit in salt water but the boat was washed and the engine flushed within a half hour of retrieval. A Mercruiser tech told me that these big block engines can go two thousand hours before a rebuild is necessary. I challenge anyone to show me an indication of salt water usage on this boat.Amenities include a spacious cabin with sleeping for 2, table, plus a head with holding tank. It has a sink - wet bar in the cockpit and a table that converts into a bunk.My son had a brief interest in wakeboarding so we bought a Fly High stainless steel tower that worked really great for the 5 or 6 times we used it. It is in like new condition and can be put up or taken down in about 10 minutes. I can't believe there are too many other 260SS boats out there with a designated wakeboard tower like this!Also included is a 2003 tandem axle aluminum bunk Load Rite trailer rated for 8,000 pounds. The boat weighs about 6,000 so there is a comfortable safety margin. I installed Kodiak silver cadmium disc brakes on all 4 wheels with an electric - hydraulic actuator. This rig will stop when you want, again in the interest of safety. 3 tires are 2 years old, the fourth I've had for 3 years. This fall the oil and filter change featured Mobil 1, as always. I have all the original paperwork from Formula as well as the manuals for the electronics. Marina bills for various expenditures are also included.NADA low retail is $30,920 and average retail is $35,315 just for this boat. I believe the money spent for this boat and trailer is a sound investment. With continued routine maintenance, it will provide years of trouble free boating.Feel free to request more photos, especially if you'd like me to photograph a certain section of the boat. I live in southern Vermont and will work with you on delivery.Don't hesitate to give me a call! I need to sell this boat. Peter $31995, 8023456529. Located in Stamford Vermont.
