Model Owned: 1983 Exciter

Default 1983 Exciter

I have a 19' Exciter metal flake red and grey. The interior has new bucket seats in front, recovered rear bench, reupholstered side pads, and new carpet (Interior all done in white and carpet in grey). It has new faria white face gauges and a new mercury hand throttle. The boat has a 1986 Merc 175 black max. With a Merc trophy plus 23 pitch the speedo on a perfect day would read 71. The floor is solid, the transom has some stress cracks due to the jackplate on it. I did have the transom looked at and was told it good and solid. It sits on a new white Eagle trailer single axle with surge brakes. The trailer has the aluminum wheels. The boat also has a new stereo with rockford fosgate components and a 12" sony Xplode sub below front deck. This boat gets many looks due to its condition. It has always had a full body cover and is stored in a heated garage to protect the paint finish which is almost perfect. I haven’t seen a nicer one! Send me an e-mail at matt.peoples@investmentcenters.com with any questions. I’m asking $7,000 OBO. Thanks for looking!

They are no longer there. That was the previous owners idea. Just in case anyone is wondering.

Thanks

Probably not the best time to sell, but I would like to find a starliner before spring. I've got a 2yr old and its time for an open bow.

That's got to be one of the nicest looking Exciter's I've seen. I had to leave a note for you on your Ebay sale, even. I'd love to chat with ya before you pass it on to a new "proud" owner. I've been restoring a '79 myself and they have proved to be some what of a rarity in the Checkmate society. I'd love to have some detailed interior pics of some particular things. Good luck with your sale!!!!
