1978 25' Express for sale on this site $4900--freshwater kep

Okay, I officially posted our boat for sale after figuring out how. My slow connection wouldn't let me upload a picture, but oh well! It's on ebay too. We'll see what happens. I'm hoping for $4900 despite the economy....NADA is about $8500. :lol:

Advertising on Trojan site

I couldn't figure out the price on the Trojan site...of course I could email the person in charge, but was in a hurry, as we're about to be in a position of paying for two slip rentals if we don't sell in about 1 month! And, I am confused as to why no one is advertising there? I feared no one would ...

just curious

I'm just curious...did you buy this boat specifically because you wanted to fix it up? I totally understand the "project boat" idea. I'm just asking becasue I wondered if you're restoring for the fun of it, or restoring because you want the end product of a nicer Trojan 25'. Shameless advertisement ...

That's right- 9 ft 4in!

oops, my bad! I wonder if that means you don't have to get a permit to tow. That might make it easier to sell.

It's for sale!

We are officially putting our Trojan up for sale today! Due to the complications posed by transporting a boat with a 9.5 beam (and the fact that there probably won't be potential buyers in Arkansas) we are asking just $5,000. If you know anyone interested in a 25' 1977 Cruiser, please let them know....

I knew someone was going to ask that question!

Weeeellllll..... yes :oops: The sale isn't complete yet...we're going to get it surveyed. Trust me, this was a HARD decision. We would have rather kept the Trojan, but on the lake we are located on, there just aren't other boats like this and no one knows how to work on them. We know we'll still hav...

It's a 1978 Trojan Express Cruiser-25 ft. It has some things really going for it...a custom full enclosure, excellent interior, always kept in fresh water and covered, runs great, and everything works, stringers look good and solid, etc. It's definitely not a "project boat." The problem is it does n...

Advice on pricing a Trojan for sale

With heavy hearts, my husband and I have decided to sell our Trojan. Essentially, the Trojan made us realize just how much we enjoy hanging out in a cabin cruiser...which prompted us to dream bigger. We now have a goal of motoring down the Tom-Tenn River and TomBigbee into the intercoastal waterway,...

rebuilds

We looked into a rebuild. We're a little scared because we've never known of carb. rebuilds to be very successful... And as far as marine goes, there aren't really any competent people in this area that I know of! We looked on the internet to find a place to send it for a rebuild, and it was going t...

carburetor replacement?

I have a 1977 25' Express Cruiser. It looks to be the original 318 engine but currently has what looks to be the original carburetor. The gaskets on the carb. appear to be getting porous and I'm afraid of possible gasoline fume problems in the future. I Would like to replace this carb for this reaso...

Thanks very much for the advice. We'll try to find numbers on the part...as it does look old and original. This was really helpful.
