Are there Boston Whaler GTX 18 boats made with inboard engines like a Mercruiser four-cylinder 3.7 liter 185 HP? Please let me know. Rene - The Netherlands

While the GTX model was made in the 1980s, Whaler used a number of different sterndrives in it including MerCruiser sterndrives in the 185 hp range.
Most GTX models I have ever seen were equipped with sterndrives but a few were built for outboards.
No GTX was made for a straight inboard.

The GTX is build up till 1985. The outboard version could have an outboard of maximum 150 HP. The sterndrives versions are supplied with either a Mercruser 190 or a Mercruser 260.

...or a Mercruiser 488 (four cylinder, 188 hp) or an OMC 260 with Cobra outdrive.
The last GTX models were made in 1986.

I presume you are looking at the GTX that is almost a year for sale on www.botentekoop.nl This is the only GTX in Holland, and I am sure the owner wants to sell very badly by now. You might be able to get this at a steal price. They started with the double of what they are asking right now. If you buy the GTX, I would like to welcome you as a member (free of Charge) to the email@example.com
We organize lots of trips,
Just let me know if you are interested.
