Own the Legend!


Here is your chance to own one of the most legendary boats in the history of offshore. This is the 26' version of the Chris Craft Stinger. This particular model is the 260 SL limited.  This features upgraded graphics and interior treatments as well as the iconic radar arch.

This boat was repowered with completely rebuilt 1994 Mercruiser 5.7 (350) EFI engines in 2005. Get the look and performance of the classic twin engine V-8 offshore boat with the efficiency and reliability of modern electonic fuel injection (throttle body fuel Injection for you techies).  Sorry, no accurate reading on the hour meters, but again the engines were completely (Crank, pistons, heads, etc...) rebuilt in 2005. This boat fires up every time, gives great performance, with a smooth ride that most new boats can't match.


The cockpit including the stand-up bolster seats, rear bench seat and rear sun-pad have also been re-upholstered (in roughly 2008.)  


The cabin has a beautiful dark grey colored factory embroidered upholstery and mirrored cabin ceiling giving the boat a luxurious and sophisticated look.  This boat doesn't suffer from the audacious color schemes typical of boats in this age. The blacks, greys, and slivers of this boat will never look dated and this boat has a timeless appeal.

The sound system on this boat rocks! Rockford fosgate amplifier, multiple subs and newer speakers both inside at out. 

The exterior of the boat shows nicely with no major "dock rash" but when upclose to the boat the graphics to show their age with some "cracking in the vinyl graphics (ie... stickers.)"  The boat looks awesome from ten feet away and would be the perfect candidate for a re-wrap or absolutely can be enjoyed as it is. 

This is a LOT of boat for the money, with an amazing heritage and pedigree and updates in all the important things. 


The price includes a triple axle trailer.
