New owner in Bettendorf IA

Postby 89Allegra » June 25th, 2017, 10:39 am

Hello all. I am a new owner of a 1989 Allegra. I had a 1989 Montego 2557 that perished in a barn fire 4 days before I was planning to remove it. I'm currently getting the Allegra up to date on maintenance and restoring some systems that stopped working. It's in the water and we've been enjoying it. I still have my complete canvas from my Montego including the metal supports and a mooring cover that I am looking to sell. That was my primary reason for coming to the board today. I had removed it for winter storage. I love carvers. What I like best about the Allegra is the above deck seating and the size of the engine compartment. It's like the Millennium Falcon's smuggling compartments. What I like least is lack of an aft cabin that could easily fit in the smuggling compartments.

The new boat is a 1989 Allegra 30. The kids miss the Montego but we like the room of the Allegra. The Allegra is reportedly 34ft loa.
