1988 Spectra 170

1988 Checkmate Spectra 170 with 1988 150 Mercury. This boat is in exceptional shape. All original upholstery and carpet. The boat has never been left in the water and always stored inside or in a covered boat hoist. The boat is solid and 100% original. The motor has only had normal service items done to it and runs great. Normal usage has been a tank or 2 of gas each summer. Very low hours. You won't find a nicer boat of this vintage. The interior is in mint condition, a few minor scratches on the hull. This is the nicest looking Spectra I have laid eyes on.

See pictures on my craigslist ad:

I bought this boat! I absolutely love it and the listing was spot on. I probably put more hours on it last summer than it saw in the last decade total. She is a beauty!

Welcome to the Forum. It's a great place for info and to meet great people. When you get a chance, go to Member Introductions and tell us a little about yourself. Where you're at , where you boat, etc. Congrats on your boat. :thumb:

KG, I bought one too! Mine is a project tho! Complete engine work and a new floor! Same 88 Spectra with a 150 Merc BlackMax.
It seems the Spectra is not very common. I saw this post and Maario's link to the CL ad but its old now...... I'd love to see what yours looks like. Can you post any pics?
This is mine.....
