This vintage Formula 233, a superb sports convertible in its day, is in very reasonable condition. Hunt hull, everything works---recent motors and outdrives, recent Awl Grip, recent top, new seats. Inspired by ocean racers, the hull is full-straked deep-V with a fast and kindly ride. With a pair of 4 cylinder motors it is easy on the gas.
2 Mercruiser 3.0Litre, 4 cyl, LH gas engines, Alpha One drives w/SS tie bar, 4-blade alum props. Racor gas filters, Ride Glide cable steering w/Merc power assist, Morse cable controls. There are two 25 gal saddle tanks and a 24 gal plastic belly tank, all with remote gas gauge. Merc trim/tilt controls w/pair trim gauges. Both engines have full gauges (volt, oil, water temp, tach). Pitot tube speedometer.
AUK has a cushioned "V" berth down forward with a Groco marine head under the filler. There is also a large forward hatch. Both of the windshields open for ventillation. There is a flag staff w/flag and a burgee staff fwd on the aluminum bow rail. It comes with life jackets, dock lines, fenders, USCG safety package, small Danforth anchor w/chain-rope rode, SS stern rail, cushion on the aft engine box cover.
The seats are new, the white Sunbrella top is newer and in good condition.
It has a teak companionway door and teak trim.
AUK has that deep-V hull that is still in style--power is speed and with 300 total horsepower AUK can still get you there on time. The motors and outdrives were installed somewhat recently and have been professionally maintained since new. The boat gets very light seasonal use and the motors probably have no more than 100 hr on them. While the price reflects that it is not in show-boat condition, AUK is all there. On the one hand it needs nothing and on the other hand it could take all the upgrades one might want to add to this old classic. It's a sleeper.
