I am selling my 1973 16' Currituck in very good condition. The gelcoat is in great condition except for 1 ding on the front end that has been sealed. This happened when the last owner turned a bend to tight and the whaler had a battle with his suburbans quarter panel and the whaler won, it crushed the quarter panel!! Anyway, it has a newer interior from the BW commercial division, basically like the standard had except the colors are dessert tan and commercial grey. It comes with a fish finder and mills mooring cover. The motor is a 1975 Johsnon 85 hp and runs very good, many new parts on it. This boat has never seen saltwater. The trailer is in very good condition, but has no title(I got it this way). She is very clean for a 1973 whaler and solid. On this pics I have you can see the Ding and some water stains from the previous year from being in a dock, but that will come off, I just didn`t get it all off last fall. If you would like more info or pictures, please email me at jackgraner@yahoo.com The price is $5500 or best offer. The new interior alone was $1500 and I put $1000 into the engine(basically all new electronics under the hood + labor). I would also be willing to trade/trade plus cash for a nice Semi V aluminum in the 16-17 foot range, prefferably welded, but would consider rivited. Also would trade for a nice motorcycle or trade/trade plus cash.

OK, update. I lost the anchor hatch cover, the motor needs a water pump kit and the 2 water hoses that run to the heads( they are under $10 a peice) and she is running a little rough(she has sat for almost 2 years), I am am replacing the plugs as they are old, might need the carbs cleaned out . She has a new batter now. With all this in mind, I would like to move this boat, so the first $3500 takes her home!!

I've seen pics of this boat. It is a very nice boat! In fact I wanted to buy it at one time, just too far away from me. Somebody needs to buy this boat! This is a STEAL!

I also have a new water pump kit for the engine now. The buyer will have to install it though.

If you put up a "WTB 1973 Currituck in good condition for $3500" you would get laughed out of town. I would keep her and start using her again. She's a fine looking boat.

How about the next time I come to Pittsburgh(need to get t-shirts for bigshot) we go out for a day of boating and I'll pick up all expenses. We could do a day on the Rivers and stop at the Strip District for lunch and t-shirts.

Hi Jim, would I be laughed at because it is overpriced or becasue it is underpriced?

It is way underpriced in my opinion. It's a steal at $3500.
If I didn't have 3 Whalers she would be mine. You can't find a decent 13 footer for $3500 and I think the Currituck would make a fine family boat. I'm sirious about the river trip. I grew up in Greenfield/Hazlewood/Brentwood and never been on a boat on the rivers. It would be an honor to ride in a Whaler that made fame in Cetacea.

I would have liked to see Jack keep the original Currituck varnished wood interior, which I really liked and made for a real Whaler Classic inshore boat. A bow rail would be nice on the boat also.

If someone is interested in this boat, but worried about the engine, and wants a matching Classic engine for it, I will very shortly be selling a practically "new-in-the-box", mechanically and cosmetically perfect, (like all my stuff!) 1974 Johnson 70 engine, with only 100 fresh water hours on since new, and not used since 1980. It would be perfect, economical, new power for this boat, and the same vintage as the boat.

Hi Larry!! If I would have ordered a boat like this new back then, I would have gotten a 50 or 70 for it, but for bigger water, the 85 will get you off of the water quickly!!
