I am selling my 2016 Yamaha 242 Limited S E-Series that has 60 hours on it. Comes with twin 180 HP Yamaha 1.8L HO engines and this boat will move. Top speed of 50 mph in a 24 foot boat is pretty decent. This is a dry riding boat. I have had in the Gulf on a slight chop day and didn’t get one drop of water on us. I have owned the boat since new. I flush the motors after each ride, for minimum 5 minutes each. Salt Away is used also.
The interior is in great shape. The motors run fantastic. No issues ever. 2 batteries are standard. This is my second 24′ Yamaha boat and I have nothing but good things to say about them. I am selling because I am looking to get into a 5th wheel toy hauler. I had the dealer do the first service and check up on the boat. I have done the oil and filter changes since then. I have and will pass along to the new owner the pump needed to change the oil. I also will pass along 2 anchors (needed to properly use the boat if anchoring), 10 life jackets, flares, 3 black dock lines (nice), and 2 fender bumpers. The boat will also come with the awesome Yamaha cover ($750) that I wouldn’t own another one without. The trailer is in good shape also. Solid galvanized twin axle trailer. Comes with table and mounting pole. All filler cushions come with boat too. The back deck is awesome and a real selling point of this boat along with the shallow draft and ability to back up close to beach. We have really enjoyed this boat! Tons of family and friends have also.
The only thing the boat needs is the rear carpet piece… you may be wondering why. Well after cleaning, the carpet is really heavy. My cousin and I hung it up on the lift and were gonna let it drip/air dry. Well the next AM when I went down to the dock it wasn’t there. It either slid off and fell into water which I couldn’t locate it or someone took it. I hate a thief and I want to believe a big gust of wind came and blew it off once it was dry…. Either way I have the center ski locker and front carpet pieces but not the big back piece. I am more upset about this than anybody, believe me. The carpet kit (whole boat) is $430 from Yamaha parts so I will just negotiate that into the price of the boat and you can get that or you can do what I would do and get the SeaDek kit for the boat from Jet Boat Pilot.
Thanks for looking and make sure to check out the YouTube videos I have linked for the boat. The second link is the actual boat on Lake Keowee in SC. I have plenty more pics if you want also.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S9a7Q58itg
