Glastron Carlson CVX-17 with Black Max - $3456 (West Knoxville
https://knoxville.craigslist.org/boa/d/glastron-carlson-cvx-17-with/6262752234.html

This is a hot rod boat that runs right at 70 MPH, based on a jet ski speedo, I've NOT had it checked with GPS.

Here's the long story:

Bought the boat off of Ebay about 12 years ago from a guy in Florida. I had my brother go and check it out before I bought it. I told him to check the floor for any weak spots, and to lift the motor to check for any transom play. He told me it checked out fine, so I bid and won the auction. I went to Florida to pick it up (my brother had picked it up from the seller and had it at his house) and arrived late and night...went to sleep and got up at 4:00 am to drive back to Knoxville. Somewhere after daylight I stopped to actually get a good look at the boat and the check it out. Guess what? The floor had soft spots and the transom had a little bit of flex when I lifted the motor (I don't know how my dumbazz brother didn't see and feel that).

Came home...ripped out the interior and had a new floor put in by the place in Seymour that does a ton of great fiberglass work. The stringer were all great...and now I had a great new floor and carpet. I used the boat for a couple years, then had a little issue with a broken neck. While I was down with the broken neck my brother in law went into my garage to borrow something...came back into the house and said there was a strong gas odor in the garage, and asked if the boat was leaking gas. I said NO, it must be the gas cans in the garage. Well, a few days later I went to the garage and the gas smell about knocked me out! I looked in the boat to see my nice carpet totally wrinkled and soaked with gas! The original gas tank had rotted out along a bottom seam and poured every bit of gas into the boat...not great.

After getting over the broken neck I got the old tank out, got a new plastic one (same size and under the bow of the boat) and put it in...fantastic! Put new carpet in, and it was ready to go. On the first trip out, the girls with me said..."we smell gas". I let them know there was NOT a leak and they imagined the smell of gas!! Then, after we were getting in and out of the boat and the floor was wet, I noticed a shiny, oily looking place...yeah, baby...GAS!!! That's when I found out I had a fuel filter / water separator on the transom of the boat that was also rotted out and leaking gas like crazy!! Got a new filter...put new carpet in AGAIN, and was back in business.

Meanwhile, the transom was getting weaker and weaker, and there was quite a bit of flex starting to show. I was only using the boat two or three times a year, so it seemed to work okay...and what's the worst that could happen, anyway? A couple of years ago while on the lake all of sudden a bunch of water appeared in the boat...the transom was leaking and really letting water in! NOT GOOD! So, back to the super fiberglass guy in Seymour to fix the transom. Boy did he fix it...it is rock solid...and should be for what I paid (if my memory is correct is was something close to $2,000).

So, everything was great...new floor, two new carpets, new transom. Back to the lake last summer...as usual I always check to make sure the water pump is pumping when we start off, and check it all the time while out on the lake. About 20 minutes into the day...there was only a little water shooting out. Yup, the impeller was gone! I took the bottom unit apart, and installed the impeller, greased up like it should be, etc. Tried in vain to get the damn bottom end back on, but it wouldn't quite go on all the way. The nice guys at the boat place on Topside Rd. told me to bring it down...laughed a bit because I couldn't get it back together, and took about 45 second to slip it back into place. AND...they didn't charge me anything!! Yahoooooooooooooooo.

Since that day the boat has been started with earflaps and hose water a few times just to keep things moving around. I haven't been able to get to the lake (I work over 70 hours every week and never take a day off).

Oh, forgot about the new steering cable and rack and pinion that I got several years ago. That was another fun day on the lake!

When I sell this boat it will be the first time since 1973 that I haven't been a boat owner!! I've loved every boat that I've owned except this one...and now it's time to share it with someone else.

The boat looks great...always inside. The boat is crazy fast. My wife never liked it...she much preferred the CVX-16 we used to have, or the jet boat, or the tournament ski boat...not this one.

I want it out of my garage and into yours. Look at the pics and come see and buy it. I will entertain trades, but it must be something much, much smaller...maybe a motorcycle of some kind. I know these boats are starting to become quite collectible so I'm not giving it away. The insurance is only $8.53 each month, so I can keep paying that pretty easily.

You've still got time to enjoy it this season...some get it.

boat,motor,trailer - $775 (sc.w.s.)
https://siouxcity.craigslist.org/boa/d/boatmotortrailer/6278748141.html

I have a 1982 Glastron Carlson 16ft fiberglass tubing and ski boat. It needs a little wiring at the start switch and the trim and tilt but runs good. I was told it is unsinkable but not wanting to try. Just have too much going on so decided to sell. At the price you can put a little into it for a lot of fun. Asking $775 so take a look at pretty gold flake with good trailer and a 85hp evinrude motor 77.

1983 Glastron Carlson CVX18 - $2500 (Pelican Rapids
https://fargo.craigslist.org/boa/d/1983-glastron-carlson-cvx18/6277815298.html

I have CVX18 project boat. I bought this boat in September, 3 years ago but have never had the time to start the restoration. It has the 5.7 Mercruiser stern drive with stainless prop. I heard it run when I bought it and it went into drive and reverse nicely. The engine sounded real good but I never did more than start it on the trailer (water was hooked up to lower unit). After I got it home I winterized it and it hasn't been started since. The trim works good but for some reason the trim wiring isn't routed correctly on the outside of the lower unit. The floor is very sturdy with the exception of a small section of plywood located under the rear seat. It feels like the stringers are all decent. The gel coat will definately need some work. The are also some scratches, with a couple being deep. The trailer looks to be an original with the CVX. I know this model boat is getting quite hard to find so, for the right person, this could turn out to be a great collector boat. All the original seats, etc. are with the boat, with original upholstery on the two buckets (bad condition). Please call or text me at 218 - 79 zero - 3 three -7- zero if you would like more information or if you would like to see it. Thanks for looking!

18ft Glastron Carlson - $3000 (Laconia
https://nh.craigslist.org/boa/d/18ft-glastron-carlson/6275955689.html

18 foot 1986 Glastron Carlson inboard outboard. This is my 3rd season with this boat, but since I bought my big boat I dont seem to have much time for it. It was professionally rehabilitated before I purchased it. Mercruiser 305, which is new to the boat 2 seasons ago. Carburetor rebuilt this summer. Custom cover. Trailer included.
Runs well, but could probably benefit from a little TLC.
$3000 OBO.

Vintage Carlson Glastron CVX 16 - $1500 (Monmouth
https://maine.craigslist.org/boa/d/vintage-carlson-glastron-cvx/6279500100.html

Nice vintage CVX 16 Carlson/Glastron in overall decent condition. It does need some love and is a project boat but mostly finishes like upholstery and floor work. It is a running and functioning boat but hasn't seen the water in over a year. Hull in good condition and fiberglass finish also nice for age. Windshield is intact without cracks and the merc 115 is in excellent cosmetic condition and starts and runs as it should. Has working power tilt and trim. Gauges function as does telescoping steering system. Has integral gas tank. Trailer is sound and has new lights and new white spoked wheels and tires. Was going to restore but have too many projects. Price has been reduced for end of season and this is as low as it's going. A great deal for a desirable collectible model and better considering that the trailer and motor alone would cost more than the price of $1500. E-mail or call 242-1524.
If still listed it's still available. Will not respond if availability is your only question. I'd have sold this boat 15 times over if every caller had followed through on expressed intentions so understand that my patience with dreamers has worn out. Will be happy to answer questions from the sincere... which means by phone or in person.
