1981 Sea Ray 255 SRV

Sea Trials are welcomed at Oceanside Harbor ​but for serious interest only.

This Sea Ray 255 SRV has been a tremendously fun boat while we’ve owned it. Originally a fresh water boat in Utah, it’s only been used about 15 times in salt water over the last two years. Engines have always been properly flushed after use.It’s safely taken us out to Catalina Island 7 times as well as a bunch of other day trips up and down the coast. It’s plenty fast, efficiently and easily cruising at 26 knts. It gets up to plane effortlessly and will plane at speeds as low as about 20 mph depending on conditions. When we bought it, most everything in the interior and mechanically was original. I’ve replaced many parts and mostly remodeled the interior. Much of the hard work is done and the boat is ready for someone to finish updating. I’ve been easily able to tow the boat with a Chevy 2500 diesel. Trailer tows very easily and rides balanced and smooth.

Please reach out via text if you’d like to come check it out. Boat is located in Escondido (Hidden Meadows).
