I have a 1993 Baja Islander 240 open bow for sale. The hull measures ~22.5’ and the swim step is ~1.5’. This boat & trailer will fit in your standard “boat deep” Havasu garage. Carbureated 7.4L 454 with a Bravo 1 outdrive.
This would be a great boat for a young family looking to get on the water – lots of storage space in this boat. It would also be great for a young person looking for an affordable and reliable boat to pack full of other young friends and bump the stereo all day having fun enjoying the scenery. I really do not want to sell the boat, but I have not been able to use it for two years due to other commitments and it just doesn’t make sense to let it sit.
I purchased this boat from a co-worker who inherited it after his father-in-law passed. The boat had ~500 hrs on it and he pulled the motor and freshened it up. His work included rebuilt heads, new bearings, pistons & rings. He had a shop in the Inland Empire install a new gimble bearing after which they also reinstalled the engine & aligned the drive/engine. He put about 8 hours or so on the boat on Lake Mead and I bought it from him December 2015. Current hours are ~575. I have not had one single issue with the boat in the 65 hours I put on it summer of 2016 & 2017.
After purchasing the boat I performed the following work:
• Built new rear bench seat out of marine plywood & coated in polyurethane. Bench has two custom coolers built in with drains to the bilge.
• Installed a tilt helm and new steering wheel
• Installed a Dana marine off-shore style control with new cables for both throttle & gear selection
• Installed new Arco Marine starter (~65 hrs)
• Installed new marine fuel pump (~4 hrs)
• Installed new water impeller (~4 hrs)
• Installed a winch relay & re-wired the electric hatch circuit. Hatch opens & closes in ¼ of the time as the stock configuration.
• Installed stainless through bolts with cone washers for the open bow section. Travelling any significant distance in rough water, the wood screws would back out and this remedied the issue.
• All new marine rocker switches on the dash (red back lighting) with USB charging ports.
• Dash panels covered in carbon fiber vinyl
• All new gauges with 60mph GPS speedo & tachometer with digital hour meter (0 hours on new gauges). Bright white LED back lighting for gauges.
• Installed a 19p 4 blade quicksilver stainless steel prop (boat also has a stainless 3 blade 21p on board as a spare).
• Brand new Baja factory mooring cover (overstock item purchased from Great Lakes Skipper). This is NOT a towing cover to my knowledge. I have not and would not tow with it on.
Boat has a KILLER stereo system.
o Exile Bluetooth receiver
o Clarion equalizer for volume, bass, & sound control
o Polk 6x9s under dash
o Powerbass 6.5” coaxials at captains & co-captains seats
o Powerbass 8” coaxials at rear bench
o (2) kicker Comp VR 12” wired at 1 ohm (these subs have rubber surround and waterproof cones – perfect for boats)
o Custom sealed sub boxes with 1 cu ft volume, resin coated inside & out and covered in grey carpet. Sub box sides extend beyond the back surface of the box and fit tight to hull of the boat to provide storage pockets between the back of the box & hull.
o PPI 1000.1 sub amp
o PPI 600.4 speaker amp
o Bilge blower fan installed under dash to cool amps on hot days
o (2) Napa deep cycle 8231 batteries in parallel (105 amp hour each). You can listen to music all day long without issue, sun up to sun down.
These batteries are completely independent and are NOT charged on the water by the engine alternator. Batteries must be charged at the dock or back at home overnight in current configuration.
Noco Genius 2-bank 20amp charger included which is connected to stereo batteries. 50’ on board extension cord.
The interior of this boat is very clean. I would give the vinyl a 7.5 out of 10. There are no rips or tears. The rear hatch is showing some signs of age at some of the stitching seams. Sometime in the recent past before 2015, the original owner had the upholstery re-done and also had a new floor installed. The floor is solid with no soft spots (I’m 180 lbs ). There are a few stains in the carpet that were present when I bought the boat.
Trailer is a Trail-Rite C-channel main & cross member construction in very good condition with no corrosion. Bunks are new pressure treated 2x4’s. Brand new trailer coupler/hitch with surge master cylinder. Drums have been turned with brand new backing plates, pads, & wheel cylinders installed. Koyo wheel bearings & races looked good so I cleaned & repacked them. Tires were new in 2015 and have maybe 2000 miles on them. Trailer is titled in NV & is not current on registration due to no use of boat over past 2 years.
Boat and trailer has been stored indoors since I have owned it with cover & tarp over it. Batteries have been maintained by switching the Noco charger between the stereo batteries and the motor batteries. One motor battery is tested no good for some reason, and I will be replacing it before the sale.
