This is a very special and unusual Yellow Jacket and everything is as new. A 17 foot molded mahogany speedboat Model 16- s/n 0314143; with very unique Mercury Mark 78E mechanical reversing 6-cyl., 70hp engine- s/n1167800. Comes with Husky A3 Trailer- s/n 31940. Professionally restored to like new with all original parts. Engine has recently been professionally serviced by North Island Marine Service. While working well, the motor was was thoroughly gone through and NOS parts were used to renew the Stator, complete Water Pump and all Engine Seals, as well as a major tuneup.
I have All papers and documents since new, including owners manual for engine, boat and trailer as well as all service records. I believe this to be a Fury Deluxe model distinction, due to the transom cover. This boat came from within 20 Miles of the Company where it was built and may have been one of the Custom-Built for customer models. There is nothing in the records to indicate this but it does not conform to any of the standard configurations specified in any of the research literature. Records indicate that the bottom was fiberglassed to the spray rails in 1958.
