I'm dizzy...


Nice looking boat, it is always a joy to find an older model that has been kept up well.

Great boat. My neighbor has a red 91 280es with the radar arch. He has owned the boat for over 12 years and a great boat baja built. Honest 70mph and tons of room for a boat of this size and great ride. We just got back from a trip from 1000 islands to Montreal and his boat hit 1100 hrs. Motors never been apart! Can't say enough about the 280es. He is talking about getting something newer (302 or 322)....trying to talk him into updating the 280es with fresh motors/drives. I'll post some pics. Great looking boat and best of luck with it.

I love the red on that! What engines does he have in it? I just love the harder lines of the older boats. You are right about the ride, I've only been out everyday since i bought it, love it

Most has to do with maintenance and up keep. I knew both owners of this boat and both were/are very meticulous when it comes to oil changes, general maintenance, etc. Engine compartment in this boat looks like new.

My engine compartment looks new too - I know the past owner too and the one before him all the way back to 2003 plus the mechanic who maintained it is the same one who handles my other boats so his word was what I really wanted. Looking forward to catching you on hours - I am at 550 now
