Description

THIS IS A (FRESHWATER USE ONLY, NEVER BEEN IN SALT WATER) 1980 CIGARETTE 28 SS POWERED BY TWIN MERCRUISER BIG BLOCK ENGINES COMPLETE WITH A TARGET TRAILER. THIS IS PART OF AN ESTATE SALE....SELLING NO RESERVE!!!!! *** CLEAR BOAT AND TRAILER TITLES IN-HAND ***
THE 28 SS HAS BEEN IN THE MIDWEST AREA SINCE NEW (CHICAGO / GREEN BAY,WI) BUT IT HAS BEEN IN STORAGE / UN-USED THE LAST 10 YEARS OR SO.
THE CIGARETTE FEATURES TWIN MERCRUISER, GM BASED ENGINES, TRS DRIVES W/ STAINLESS PROPS, THRU-HULL EXHAUST W/ MUFFLERS, K-PLANES / TRIM TABS, BOLSTER SEATS, OLDER STEREO AND VHF MARINE RADIO.
**** HERE'S WHAT I WAS TOLD ABOUT THE BOAT / MOTORS : IN APPROX 2002, THE MOTORS / DRIVE TRAIN COMPONENTS WERE REBUILT / GONE THROUGH BY MEL RIGGS / RIGGS MARINE ( MEL WAS A FACTORY CIGARETTE DRIVER AND CARL KIEKHAEFER EMPLOYEE BACK IN THE DAY) AND IS VERY WELL KNOWN / RESPECTED IN THE OFFSHORE POWERBOAT WORLD...ACTUALLY THE LAST PERSON TO SPEAK WITH DON ARONOW.
I'M TOLD THE ENGINES ARE BELIEVED TO BE 472 CI AND PRODUCE NEARLY 600 HP EACH, BUT HAVE NO PAPERWORK TO BACK UP ANY OF THOSE CLAIMS ( PAPERWORK WAS LOST / THROWN OUT AS PART OF THE ESTATE. THE ENGINES DO HAVE "RIGGS MARINE" EMBOSSED ON THE SIDE OF THE HEADERS / EXHAUST MANIFOLDS. A FAMILY MEMBER ALSO SAID ENGINES AND DRIVES HAVE VERY LITTLE RUN TIME ( 5-10 HRS) SINCE ENGINE REBUILD...BUT AGAIN I HAVE NO WAY TO BACK UP ANY OF THOSE CLAIMS ( NO PAPERWORK WHAT SO EVER ).


THIS BOAT IS IN NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION BOTH INSIDE AND OUT. EXTERIOR HULL APPEARS TO HAVE POSSSIBLY BEEN REPAIED AT ONE TIME ?. THE INTERIOR INCLUDING COCKPIT / CABIN UPHOLSTERY IS ALL IN GOOD SHAPE.
BOTH ENGINES START AND RUN VERY NICE AND ALL GUAGES SEEM TO WORK. THE OUTDRIVES SHIFT SMOOTH AND AS THEY SHOULD. THE ENGINE OIL, GEAR LUBE AND WATER PUMP IMPELLERS WERE ALL JUST REPLACED, ALSO HAS TWO NEW BATTERIES. OUTDRIVE BOOTS / BELLOWS ALL LOOK GOOD. PICS / VIDEO WERE TAKEN 06-2-2017. I HAD THE BOAT OUT ON THE WATER FOR APPROX 1 HOUR TODAY, IT RAN VERY WELL AND HAS, IN MY OPINION SOME SERIOUS POWER ( NOT SURE ON THE TOP SPEED ).
WALK AROUND / RUNNING VIDEO'S : https://youtu.be/_PzQOgqJMe0 https://youtu.be/bmcD_YVndWAhttps://youtu.be/9ITNR2fB_g4 https://youtu.be/n72hbfR4lZk
THE PACKAGE ALSO INCLUDES THE ORIGINAL 1980 TARGET BUNK TRAILER. TRAILER HAS EXCELLENT TIRES, BEARING BUDDY'S, TONGUE JACK, 2-5/16" BALL AND ALL LIGHTS WORK. TRAILER DOES HAVE A CLEAR TITLE BUT HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED SINCE 1998.
******* BOAT WILL BE SOLD NO RESERVE !!, LAST BID OWNS IT *****
