Garden Grove, CASell a boat like this
BRAND NEW water jacketed Lightning headers. I just picked them up on October 12th.
I'm only selling it because I live close to the ocean and I'm shopping for an offshore boat.
This boat is awesome. It's fast and reliable. It starts in an instant, runs great, looks great, and has plenty of room. It has never been in saltwater.
It's a great combination of high performance boat and family boat. It sits lower in the water than most boats, but high enough that you don't have to wonder if wake or chop is going to splash over the side. The padded sun deck over the inboard motor helps keep the noise at a reasonable level for people inside the boat. Under the right side swim step, there's a spring loaded single-step ladder that folds down when you step on it, for easy access from the water.
It has a Dominator jet drive and a Marine Power 502 with an oversized cam, Edelbrock intake, and Holley double-pumper marine carb (not sure if it's a 750 or 850). Original owner said it has high compression cylinders, but I haven't verified it. The oversized cam is obvious because of the unmistakable loping idle.
I've never had it on glassy smooth water, so I don't really know what the top speed is. At wide open throttle, I've gotten the boat up to a little over 62mph (indicated) on slightly choppy water. I had the the thrust diverter trimmed down to keep it from jumping, but at that speed, it was still catching air. I checked the speedometer with GPS up to about 35 mph, and it seemed pretty accurate. I don't have a mount for my phone, so I didn't check it at higher speeds.
It has clean fuel tanks (2 x 24 gallons), new fuel level sensors, new fuel filters, new fuel pump, and a fresh carb rebuild. Two new Optima Blue Top marine batteries were installed last year. I don't run the stereo a lot when the motor is off, so the batteries never get drained.
The Ultra 22 Stealth's semi-vee hull handles great. It has a foot pedal throttle control. A hydraulic thrust diverter adjusts the trim to keep the nose down. Even over 60mph, it trims easily and feels perfectly stable.
The interior is in great shape, with only a few minor blemishes. There are two areas of torn vinyl, but they are on the bottom corners of seats, where they arean't noticeable (shown in the photos).
The stereo has been updated with a bluetooth Sony head unit and Polk Audio speakers (four 5 1/4" and two 6x9). The original amp and 12" subwoofers were working fine, so I left them installed.
It also has a tall removable ski tripod, bimini top, box anchor, mooring point, towable boat cover, cover support system (raises the boat cover like a tent while parked), and new tires and spare last year.
The original owner had this boat winterized, then placed in warehouse storage for 11 years, until I purchased it last year. There is no hour meter on the boat, but you can tell be the way it looks that it hasn't been used much. Because it was in storage so long, it received a lot of preventative maintenance before I started using it (oil change, pre-pressurize oil system, rotate motor by hand before starting, idle for 5 minutes, another oil change, drive 35mph for an hour, another oil change, etc...). I only use Valvoline VR1 non-synthetic racing oil, per manufacturer's specs.
Need a truck to tow it? I also have a 2003 Envy XL that I use to tow the Ultra. I got the Envoy because it has 3rd row seating and holds about as many people as the boat, so you only need one vehicle for everybody. The 2nd and 3rd row seats fold flat for a massive cargo area if needed. Tires are like new, with aggressive tread that doesn't slip on boat ramps. Pneumatic cylinders hold the back hatch up for a clear view while backing down the boat ramp. It has about 200,000 miles, but it runs fine, and towed the Ultra to Havasu and back in June, when it was around 110 degrees outside. After I sell the Ultra, I'll be selling the truck for around $3500. The Envoy is not yet for sale by itself, but if you want the truck with the boat, you can have it for $2000.
Since I'm shopping for an offshore boat, I'm also open to a trade or partial trade for something seaworthy. I'm looking for a twin engine express cruiser, cabin cruiser, or trawler over 30 feet, or maybe a sailboat over 35 feet if it has a diesel engine that can power it to hull speed.
