1980 Glastron Carlson Scimitar - $12900 (Henderson)
https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/boa/d/1980-glastron-carlson-scimitar/6716864696.html

1980 Glastron Carlson Scimitar

About the Scimitar:

If you already know what a Glastron Carlson Scimitar is, you already know how rare, unique, and cool it is! If you aren't familiar with this special boat, you are looking at what is arguably one of the coolest and most unusual sport boats ever designed and built. Legendary performance boat builder, Art Carlson, created the Scimitar with a design to resemble a water-version of a Corvette, complete with its long, curving nose, and transparent tinted T-Tops. It was an instant classic, noted for its futuristic design and great handling on the water. All these years later, there's still nothing on the water like it! Art had previously joined forces with Glastron, and the partnership created some of the most modern and beautiful fiberglass boats ever seen, under the name Glastron Carlson. The Scimitar is considered by many to be the crowning achievement of this collaboration. With moderate production numbers, and worldwide distribution, they are becoming increasingly difficult to find in good condition here in the United States. The Scimitar is the boating equivalent of a '57 T-bird . . . not the fastest boat on the water, but an awesome classic cruiser, with a sleek and sexy profile.

About this Boat:

It took me three years to find this one, after passing on a few that were either total restoration projects with missing key parts, or completely restored versions with astronomically-high price tags. This boat was in, and is still in, very good semi-original condition. Modifications include a more modern color and design scheme, accomplished through the overlay of a vinyl wrap, with the original Emerald Mist metal flake still visible along the centerline of the boat. The interior upholstery also has been changed to coordinate with the color scheme of the vinyl wrap, and additional upholstered panels added to the cockpit. It was converted to thru-hull exhaust, as well.

I know some aspects of the history of this boat, as given to me by the previous owner, which I can share further with serious inquiries. I have owned the boat for four years, and unfortunately, I just don't have enough free time to enjoy it as much as I'd like. In fact, I have only put about 6 hours on the boat since I purchased it. I am apparently the fourth owner of this boat, which has always been on the west coast. The previous owner stated that he was told the boat had always been stored inside (and it still is with me). I believe this to be true based on its condition - the floor and transom are solid. The engine (the original Mercruiser 260 hp / 350 ci) had been previously overhauled, and when I acquired the boat, I had the engine checked, the carb replaced, the water pump and seals replaced on the lower unit, and a few other things. I also had a new dual battery system installed. There is a new Bluetooth marine Radio/CD/USB player installed also, but the speakers are due to be replaced. All four tires on the trailer were also replaced, and have only a few hundred miles on them, including the short trip to the Colorado River in September of 2017, which was the last time I took her out for a run.

As one would expect with a classic boat of this age, there are some minor blemishes in the vinyl wrap and gel coat which are visible when standing very close, but overall, this is a really nice example of this rare boat model. The Scimitar is an absolute blast to drive, and people literally line up on the dock to take videos and photos when I launch. So, expect some attention if you decide to buy this one! Top speed on a Scimitar with a standard Mercruiser 260/350 ci like this one, can be anywhere between about 50 to 58 mph, depending on prop and water conditions. A modified Scimitar in Oklahoma, with a 383 Stroker, was able to run in the mid-70's, and there was a Scimitar with a blown big block in Tennessee (speed unknown). So, there are a lot of options if you want to run faster. But, if you just want to cruise, 35mph gives the most economical gas mileage on this one, 40-45 is easy and a little more fun, and it has a top speed of about 53-54 with the current prop. The attached video clips are of my final outing of the Fall season on the Colorado River, back in September of 2017, which show the boat in action (from the driver's seat), with links below. I realize that this boat is very rare, and it gets lots of attention, but PLEASE, only contact me if you are serious about purchasing. As I mentioned, available time is a challenge for me. It really needs to go to someone who has more time to enjoy it than I do. The boat is located in the general Las Vegas area near Lake Mead. It is still in storage, and has not been on the water since September of 2017.

2000 Carlson CSX-23 - $17500 (Butler)
https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/boa/d/2000-carlson-csx-23/6718039252.html

For sale is my very nice Carlson CSX-23. It was made by Glastron for a couple years as an alternate to the Baja Boss 232.
I love the boat and it has been excellent but with a growing family, it is time for a cruiser...

The Carlson has been meticulously maintained by myself as well as the previous owner. It has a fuel injected Mercruiser 454 Magnum powering a Bravo 1 drive with a CP performance drive shower and stainless prop. The boat has just about 430 hours on it and runs low to mid 60s depending on weight of fuel and any load you are carrying.
I just installed a new impeller about 4 hrs ago, it has new cockpit carpet and new canvas. The batteries were new at the beginning of the season and if properly stored, should last another season or few...
The boat has a small love seat and bed in the cuddy as well as a portable potti.
I also installed new brake backing plates and actuator on the trailer this season so it is ready to roll. I have towed it to Raystown a few times this year with no issues.
Do not call me with solicitations to sell it or other scammer BS...I deal in person and in cash only

Rare James Bond Boat! 1981 Glastron Carlson with matching trailer! - $3900 (Tippy Lake)
https://fortwayne.craigslist.org/boa/d/rare-james-bond-boat-1981/6718230323.html

This is a rare 1982 Glastron Carlson C-537. It is an inboard/outboard with a 140hp engine. This beauty is metalflake sunset red. Very low hours. It was bought new and only used for family vacations. Runs perfect! (How many used boat owners can say that?)
The ONLY reason that we are selling it is because we just don't make the time to use it. The only time I drove it was when I launched it at our boat ramp and put it on our Shore Station. Even though it was summarized and put on our Shore Station at the beginning of the summer, I used it ZERO times this year.
This is the type of boat that was used in the James Bond movie "Live and Let Die". (Only they used an outboard version)
Serious buyers can take it for a test ride on Tippy Lake.
Comes with a matching trailer for only $3,900
Include a Shore Station with new canopy cover for an additional $3,000
