Ill, I could be wrong but I don't believe 259s ever had round engine vents like the one on this boat. I think it it a 242/260 but hard to tell from the pixs.

Pretty sure you are right sct. The 242 with the sport deck are what most think of but that was an option, albeit much better looking.

My 259 has those vents. And the notches on the corners of the transom are the same too. From the side its hard to tell with the cover on. But the vents definitely dont rule out 259.

Why would you post a listing with one worthless photo in the winter stating you will not uncover the boat for a buyer until spring. Excellent sales technique right there.

I think the 242- 260. had the funky vents on side. And some even had another one them on back of the boat. At least I don't think we ever changed the mold
