Default 01 Z252 bad motor

Hey guys,

Got my clean low hour 01 z252 for sale. It has a broken ring therefore she pushes oil out the exhaust But does run. Local marina wants 3k for complete rebuild. She is in good shape, salt water boat so the out drive isn't pretty but inside is nice and sundeck needs a recover. Everything else works and comes with continental dual axle trailer with brake. seats 12, runs 53-55 gelcoat looks great. Asking 10k. Figure trailer is $1500-$2k so your getting the boat for pretty darn cheap. S. Florida

    its all good, going keep it since these boats really aren't worth a dime. Luckily I dint pay much for the boat from the get go. But thats for the input. What year is yours?

    Thanks

    mine is a 99 but is in really solid condition, perfect upholstery and $1500 sound system. You have any pics? You want to part anything out lemme know. There are a few pics of mine in the gallery under ry2545cds and 252.

    I don't think i will part it out, its in real nice shape except for the sundeck in which I can have my buddy do. I will pull the motor this winter and rebuild it myself. I would have sold it for 8k with a 2k trailer, so I really dont think my price if that far off considering yours was a 99.

    Whats your motor? merc or Volvo? I prefer volvo personally but a $3000 motor rebuild plus the fact that its been in salt water is not good for the resale market. I assume that the trailer is an aftermarket galvanized one?

    Ya keep that combo together then. I can't imagine taking my baby out on salt water but im in Indiana so don't really have to think about it. You have bravo 3 then I assume...thats the duo prop right? Did they ever make a single prop outdrive for these? My volvo duo prop I love but new props are ridiculous

    Actually its a single prop, i did look at one years ago with the dual prop.

    Yea being is south florida every lives on the Salt water BUT i would say 90% of the sub 35ft range boats down here are for fishing and outboards.
