Model Owned: Enticer (sold), 1988 Starliner (sold), 1982 Convincor (twin 3.0 Mercs)

Default 1982 Checkmate 251 Convincor w/2 x 250hp 3L EFI outboards

Selling my twin outboard 1982 251 Convincor after 4 years.

Bought it as a wreck (let's be honest), and with Demag's awesome help and guidance have brought it back to life and enjoyed many days on it with the family in last few years.
Only selling now after buying Ramifications's 2800 SX.

New upholstery - cockpit seating and cabin
New 90 gal ally gas tank
New floor
New pour in transom
New (LVL) Stringers all the way into the cabin
2 Bilge pumps
Twin axle Trailer with new longer bunks to keep hull straight (previously had 2 sets of bunks with a slight hook in hull as a result)
2 x 250 EFI 3.0l MErcury outboards
- set of 4 blade Bravo's and a set of choppers included

I have a ton of photos from the restore work, so here's a link to them on Google Drive. No particular order, but you can at least appreciate the amount of work done to this.

Boat is solid, and just needs a few small jobs doing (cabin walls need finishing - I have foam and matching vinyl to mount, and may get to this in coming weeks), rear bench needs two arm rests made up (have the matching vinyl to use).
Hull has old bottom paint - soda blaster would take it off.
A few marks on the sides, but it is 38yrs old.

It's a cheap, solid, original twin outboard 251 Convincor (has to be one of the first).
Located in central NJ.
