The title states 1972 but from what I found out years ago I believe this is a 1969 model (Stencil 2A1583). The mahogany interior of this boat was restored several years ago. We use this as a second boat to mostly explore creeks and scoot to our favorite swimming places so the Yamaha 50 4-stroke engine only has 87 hours on it. This boat has been covered up or in the garage ever since we got it. As you can see the interior of the boat is in great shape. There are a few small nicks on the exterior that are just normal wear and tear. You won’t find many Classic Whalers in this type of condition. $5500.00 OBO with trailer.

Is it just me or does that engine look quite a bit too heavy for that boat? I doubt relocating the battery forward would correct the balance. I bet she flies in calm water though.

Slightly overpowered. HP rating is probably 40. The Forty 4 strokes are pushing it. It is sitting low.

It looks good to me, it has a nice filler plate to bring it up to 20". I bet it's a lot of fun. That is a beautiful 13 sport.

I would not have gone with the 50hp if I didn't work out the 20" aluminum filler plate first. I had it made in a U shape that followed the Whaler curves horizontally and vertically which was a feat in itself. That makes it strong and gives the height to not worry about back-wash so much. Obviously with a 50hp I would not advise full throttle by yourself alone but with someone in the middle seat you can go as fast as you want (up to chine walk) which for a 58 yr old like myself is kinda fun sometimes.
