1999 Ski Nautique 196 with the Python 502cu in motor. This thing is a beast!
I am selling because my son is off to college and Id rather ride around on a pontoon and drink beer than ski or barefoot!
With the current prop, my GPS speed on fairly smooth river waters is 52-53mph (factor prop was a little faster, but this prop launches it out of the water even harder). I replaced the carpet this winter with factory Nautique carpet, and upgraded the stereo at that time as well.
The stereo is a 3800watt system with Wetsounds 6.5" speakers and a 12" Wetsounds subwoofer, Pioneer amps and head unit.
The motor was freshened up 320hrs ago with compression numbers to show its basically a new motor. It had the original Perfect pass on it but I disconnected it and removed the gauge (gauge quit working). I took a compression test this week and have pictures of each cylinder reading.
The hour meter reads 439.2, but the boat actually has around 900-1000hrs on it. I have the factory prop and also a new ACME 816 prop that is currently on it.
The interior has no rips or stains, and the hull is in perfect condition as well and looks like new. The pictures of hull look blurry because I coat the bottom with Collinite marine wax but don''''t wipe it off until the end of the season (if I get ambitious, I''''ll wipe off the wax and take more pictures). I will include the PTM Edge mirror and cover, but the barefoot boom does not go with it. I will also include the boat storage cover.
Trailer has all new wiring (round 7 pin connector) and led lights as well as new wheels and tires and also a new 2" Hydraulic brake coupler. I have title in hand and registration is up to date.
Boat will not leave my possession until cash is in my hand, or wire transfer is complete. These boats are impossible to find!! I have more pictures available for serious buyers. This boat needs nothing!
