Nice boat . But it worries me when the Owner doesn't know what engines it has .


"POWERED BY POWERFULL TWIN GAS V8'S WIDE BLOCK INTERSEPTORS 318'S CHYRSLERS THAT ARE 250 HORSE POWER EACH ."

Interceptors are Fords . And the thats what the photos show .

Thank you Paul. I am neither a Chrysler nor a Ford guy, but I do know I was looking at no 318 I was familiar with.

It's a Sea Voyager with 250 Interceptors (390 fords). Not bad looking, painted wrong. The spelling is terrible.

I was thinking they maybe 352 fords ( not 351) same block as the 390 ( 352-360-390-427 family ) ( yes 427 ford ) . But I could be wrong .My Info on these vague .Heavy engines Not sure how hard it would be to find marine parts .


Its listed as a privet seller , seller is in FLA but boat is in NY .

I say in 1969 at 250 hp its a 352. I'm no expert on marinized Ford blocks though.

Your right two different times. In the water and hatch is flipped upside down and out of water hatch installed correctly. Still looks like a nice boat though.
