This is a beautiful 1958 SlickCraft ski boat with a super clean, fully restored 1958 35hp Johnson Javelin outboard motor. Even the dually trailer has been overhauled from the bottom up. I have owned this boat for 1 year and never did get the chance to take it out but I did put it in the water about a week ago to fire it up. I start it up about once a month or so. Here are a few video clips of it in action.....

I have all of the restoration photos in an album that you can have. The heavy canvas cover comes with it as does the metal sign as seen in the photos. It really is a must see, this boat is beautiful so make me an offer I cant refuse!
About SlickCraft.....
Leon Slikkers started at Chris-Craft in the joiner department making cabin tops in 1946. In the early 1950s Leon began building 14 foot runabouts in his garage after work. In 1954 he registered the Slickcraft name, and the following year he left a promising career to open his own shop and fulfill his dream at the age of 27. He sold his house and started a small factory on Washington Avenue in Holland, Michigan. Leon began experimenting with a new material, fiberglass, in 1955. Within three years, the company put a few of the boats into production and by 1963 had stopped building with wood.
In 1969 Leon sold Slickcraft to the AMF Corporation. He stayed on as president to head up three AMF
Slickcraft / AMC companies (including Slickcraft), but eventually realized that the large corporation's business principles did not match his own and left after four years. Leon started over in 1974, building sailboats under the name S2 Yachts. Within 10 years, S2 was one of the top five sailboat manufacturers in the United States, known for building quality cruising vessels and racing boats. Gradually the company began producing high-quality power boats called Tiara Yachts, and phasing out the sailboats. S2 Yachts then constructed a second facility in Ft. Pierce, Florida and, in 1977 added Pursuit to its product lineup. In 1983 S2 Yachts purchased the Slickcraft brand name from AMF, and the following year Leon Slikkers became chief executive officer and David Slikkers was named president.
