This restored classic 1977 Checkmate Trimate III features the original 200HP Johnson outboard motor. This boat was meticulously maintained by the original owner for over 40 years before he passed away. Since acquiring the boat, we replaced the carpet and reupholstered the seats in a retro looking, but lighter colored marine vinyl to make the seats bearable to sit on in the hot Georgia sun (original seats were dark brown). We also replaced the battery, bimini top and pitot valve/speedometer tubing and we installed a new impeller in the motor.

The original Shorelander trailer has brand new tires and rims, a new come-along and strap, new LED running lights and wiring, and fresh paint.

The tachometer, speedometer, navigation lights, sternlight, and bilge pump all work, although I can’t guarantee the accuracy of the speedometer. The only thing I know that does not work on the dash is the gas gauge, but the sending unit is easily accessible if you wanted to replace it.

This boat turns heads whenever we take it to the lake. Top end appears to be around 50mph. Great for someone who wants something unique or for a collector.

I am happy to send more pictures or videos of it in the water. Please email, call or text.
