Hello all. Looking at purchasing this boat. 1984 sailfish. Any and all suggestions and comments are welcomed. Have not seen it yet. Is advertised on craigslist out of palm bay fl. Has hardtop, twin yamaha 200s, and a triple axle trailer.

Hi Bob....welcome.

You might get more traction with a few more details...asking price......pics.....what year the engines are..?? I like to tell anybody who is looking at an older boat that they should be prepared to re-power in a year or two. Especially if the engines are original.

Honest gut opinion without seeing it.

Its 37 years old. Florida boat.
Expect soft decks, stringers, transom, crazing and chalky gelcoat, corroded fuel tank.... its a hole in the water to pour money into. It should be dirt cheap.
Probably be better off pouring money into a 20 year old boat.

Triple axles..3x the parts. Beware of old trailers that can suck the life out of you.


You need to be a diy kind of guy.

Have not been able to see it in person yet. Add says that it has sat for 5 years. No more info on motors or trailer. Pics in add don't look bad but. ...asking $10k.
My current boat is a '78 19' Kencraft c/c. Was looking for a larger walkaround for longer trips.
