Found this 1978 Aristocraft Nineteen locally. I appear to be the third owner and boat had to have been garage kept to be this clean in my opinion. Does need new windshield and side glass and needed new hardtop slides. Had the bellows and impeller replaced and engine needed new wires - otherwise checked out real well. Gave good washing and now ready to see how she rides
Always liked those hard top models.
I had a Cruisers Ralley with the 470. It was a powerhouse that could turn an aggressive prop without any problems. Depending on the year you have the generator/alternator is built in and if the boat gets flooded that unit is ka=poot. The rear cylinder ran warmer than the other three, Does it have it's own cooling system?
Here's a link that might be informative. Google it if you have more questions.
Beautiful boat and condition - Congrats! I just passed on an Aristocraft 9-TEEN. It is a timeless beautiful design in my mind, the sliding roof it pretty neat, and the lack of wood in the floor is a plus for a boat of that vintage, restoration-wise. Many NOS parts for these are still available such as windshield, seat covers, etc which is truly amazing. The boat I looked at could be easily saved but was a bit more work than my skill level would allow....still looking for something with a similar classic look. It is still available if anyone interested...old fellow with failing help and just wants it to go to a good home. Is in Alberta.
Sweet model and great SCORE.. Always was tempted by this hardtop model and I.O. We are around the Chattanooga area, These Aristo were built out of Atlanta City.. Had a small 13 ft wood green windshield wood Aristo many years ago.. Wouldsee Bill Turner at the Mount Dora Fla boat show..
