Not using it enough so I thought I would try and sell it while the engine is still nearly brand new. (10 hours on the 2006 fuel injected Merc FourStroke)

Yes, this is a 2006 Merc F60 ELPT with the small gearcase spinning a 15 pitch stainless Merc prop. It's on the rev limiter when I am by myself :).....sold the 1995 Merc F50 ELPT that was on the boat previously. It was a carb motor..this one is EFI and SmartCraft ready. I put in the SmartCraft System Monitor which is very nice.
My price is probably a little high, but I really like the boat and don't care all that much whether it sells or not.
It's just that I have really gotten into standup paddleboarding and want to have several different boards in my "arsenal"....and they are NOT least for really top quality carbon race boards and downwinding boards like the SIC 14 V2 !!

I can attest to the description of the 15. I absolutely love my '78 15 foot Sport. Handles easily and is a fun boat.

Took the boat out for the final run of the season and recorded 44 mph on gps. 5900 rpm with 15 pitch stainless Merc prop and 1.83 gear ratio. Water was pretty flat and it was about 75 degrees out. I think with the right conditions I could get 45 mph. My top speed with the F50 carb motor and 2:1 gear ratio was just a tick under 40. The boat responds well to trim and does begin to chine walk at top end. (single cable NFB system). These hulls are fun !
