Glastron CVX 23 / St Paul, MN. / $1,250

https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ram/boa/d/1988-glastron-cvx-23-to/6633009365.html
I bought this boat with intentions of a complete restoration, and converting it to outboard power. Unfortunately, I don't see myself having the time to do this project for at least a couple years. The boat title is in my name. I'm working through a snag with the trailer title, but should have it in hand soon.

All of the parts shown are presumed working, or unknown, except for the trim pump - it will need a rebuild or replacement.

This will be a great project for someone. With a Chevy 350 repower it should see speeds around 60 MPH. There's nothing quite like a Glastron CV23 / CVX23!

For Sale.

I'm working on selling my house and need to get rid of stuff.

Bought this last year for 2k. Put about $400 more into it plus about 20 hours of wet sanding. It has a full new wiring harness on the 115 merc tower. New fuel fittings and a few other things.

Transom was redone by a marine shop by the previous owner. Extremely solid both there and the floor.

The trailer is an all aluminum Glastron trailer. I bought new wheels, tires, hubs, bearings, etc. The trailer is like new.

Only bad thing is that it needs carbs. I took them in to the local shop and got screwed. Anyway, it ran well when I took them in to get rebuilt. Didnt really need to, but I had them off to diagnose a fuel supply air leak, so I thought why not.

I will sell it for what I paid and take a loss on all the parts and labor just because I have to pay for new kitchen cabinets asap.

2k takes it.

Please email me at bbergstrom260@gmail.com or text 6512605266

Thanks
Brian

Original and unmolested and very rare Carlson CVX 18 in beautiful original condition. Low hour use (approx. 150hrs) never left in water and always stored in doors. Originally a Michigan boat so the Gel Coat remains in great condition. New Alpha 1 Drive, MSD Ignition, 5.0 Chevy (305 CI) with slight cam and "rollers" done by original Owner (GM Mech Engr) within 6 mos. when purchased new. Includes original all aluminum custom Carlson Trailer recently striped, repainted in Imron to match original, new wheels, tires, bearings, bunks, steps and covering. Boat runs and performs amazing and draws "thumbs-ups" wherever you go. It's a Beauty! $24k invested, insured for $16,000 but will listen to REASONABLE Offers


***************************************

ccgQrs12 / 1980 CVX 18 - $18k/Offer

"UPDATE 5/3/18: A few months back I went forward with the CVX20 so now I
have 3 GC's and I've got to let go of one of them. This CVX18 is a beauty
and someone's going to get a beautiful boat at a great price. I am open to
listen to reasonable offers but just keep in mind that this (boat) is a real
beauty. Feel free to send me a PM and we'll exchange #'s. The Boat is
located in Santa Rosa, Ca. and thanks for your interest. Curtis"
 


I don’t really want to sell it, I don’t have to sell it but I have the chance to purchase a mint, all original, CVX 20 and I won’t sell my Scimitar so I’m going to probe the marketplace for a OC-type like me who might want this Beauty!

I bought the boat from the second owner (original owner owned the boat for a bit over a year from new); a very low use (previous owner estimated that it had less than 120 hours on it and said this of his friend, the original owner, “he had built the motor up, cam and rollers shortly after he bought the boat from the local Glastron dealer”) and I probably have put 15 hours on it.

I had the boat transported (off-the-road) to California; when the boat went thru the State boarder inspection the State-employed Buffoon / Inspector insisted on seeing the “bilge” and before the transport driver knew it this 290 Lb Gorilla had cut the shrink-wrap and climbed up onto the engine cover damaging a near perfect all original boat (fractured the engine cover nearly all the way across -at the hinge). After a massive search for metal flake a really gifted “glass man” hand blended the flake to a perfect match, built up the cover (to make it more ridged), ground down the surface to the base color and re-shot the entire rear section of the boat to insure a perfect blending of both the gel-coat and the metal flake.

The trailer was disassembled and stripped. New wheel bearings, alloy wheels and tires, new lumber (redwood for the bunks and marine plywood for the steps) hardware and two new custom “tapered” fenders installed then painted (in Imron) and decaled to original – the only difference being that the original trailer decal said “GLASTRON” and the new one’s I had made state “GLASTRON-CARLSON”.

The original distributer had problems so it was replaced with a new HEI unit.
The original carburetor had been rebuilt by the previous owner however it was not functioning correctly; a new (not rebuilt) unit was installed.
The original “MR” series drive had failed; I elected to replace it with a new Alpha 1 unit.
Three of the original gauges were not working and finding suitable OEM replacements was not possible; all gauges were replaced, all but the tach and speedo fit into the original openings, modifications were required (to the original panel) to fit the larger diameter tach and speedo.
The upholstery required some stitching and panel replacement; I had upholstery made-to-match the original.  After this I was able to find a full-roll of material that retains the “marbling” look of the original, enough to redo the entire boat at some point and only if the existing were to be damaged. The upholstery, as it is, is exceptional. The carpet appears to be the original. The stern, floor and stringers are all solid. The boat has always been stored indoors.
The top and hull finishes are also exceptional. There are two very fine (so fine I can’t photograph them and only visible in soft light) spiders - one on each side of the boat @ the gunwale – approx. 18-20” from the trailing edge of the windshield frame.
Performance: The engine sounds “hearty” at idle! I’m not prone to firewalling the boat but I can tell you that acceleration (love the sound of the secondary’s) once the boat plains-out is a head-snapper and the top-end is somewhere beyond 68.5 mph (the last gps reading I was able to read before my skin color started to change!) I figure there’s another 4-7 mph left in it but I haven’t got the nerve to find out.

The Boat looks great in the pictures; it looks better in person and draws attention were ever I’ve taken it. I know that an $18k price tag may seem extreme and though well under what I’ve got tied up in it for what the boat represents someone may find it reasonable particularly if they were to go thru the expense of reproducing a CVX 18 of this quality and originality.

If you’ve a serious interest or know of someone who might feel free to PM me and we’ll exchange phone numbers. Curtis (ccgQrs12)

1990 Glastron Ventura 249 - Cabin, appliances etc. - $4000 (Rochester)
https://rochester.craigslist.org/boa/d/1990-glastron-ventura-249/6649659137.html

Great mechanic's deal here. Boat is in good condition and is currently dry docked at Gibb's marina.

I'll add more pictures of interior later this week!

Boat has always been professionally winterized, we have put up the full included cover and de-winterized to show the boat.

At the end of the season boat started to show fuel problems, stalling when decreasing speed, sporadic idle etc. It has a newer 2001 Volvo Penta engine installed and we cannot find a mechanic that will come look at it and work on it. I have a feeling it is something minor - but if interested, feel free to come do your own due diligence (I am not mechanically inclined).

Everything works great on the boat, all electric, water, appliances, plumbing work perfectly. It has a great sound system (After market with amp), LCD TV, microwave.. the list goes on. We are taking a significant loss on this but were ready to move on.

Price is FIRM and AS IS, it is already discounted drastically because it isn't running. No scams here - just a great deal (if you can diagnose fuel/carb problems) or know of a volvo penta mechanic.

82 glastron Carlson cvx 16 - $3500 (Fountain
https://nmi.craigslist.org/boa/d/82-glastron-carlson-cvx-16/6650608327.html

Awesome boat does about 45mph all gauges work, boat runs great. Just had new tires and lights put on the trailer, the boat has had the carbs gone through, new starter, seats, speakers and Bluetooth radio, new gauges, bilge pump, and put a fin on the lower unit so it gets on plan very easy, the trim has been completely rewired along with most of the boat. All the lights work and horn works. It's a great boat just looking to get something a little bigger. 3500 obo
