Just purchased a 1988 2757 montego used from a dealer/broker in michigan. I live in central new york and the boat will reside in cape vincent (st Lawrence river). I bought it based on pictures and phone conversations. I haven't seen it in person yet but the price was right so I'm confident I did good providing they were honest with me. It's powered by 2 4.3lx motors and alpha drives. It's well equipped with normal things we all add. It has a trailer included in the deal which was big for me. It should be here in the next 2 weeks depending on how long the title search and the transportation service takes. I'm hoping I did good. Ray

Nice boat! I had a 1988 27 Montego for 15 years and , obviously, loved it! Mine had the Merc 3.7LX engines at 180hp each...cruised at 24 MPH and burned about 10GPH. In the time I had her, I changed canvas, added a cherry hardwood floor to the cabin, installed AC and a battery charger. She still looked really good..had a great shine, it was just time to upgrade for me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed mine!!!

Looks clean. Make sure you service the trailer bearings before moving it.
Everyone I know that has bought a trailer boat has had at least one bearing go out on the way home.
At least 5.
