2003 Four Winns 268
Beautiful 268 for sale. 102 hours on boat, 41.3 hrs on engine. Mercruiser 350MPI (multi port fuel injection) with Bravo 3 (dual SS props) outdrive. 300hp. Top speed 42 mph.
I?m the second owner and purchased in May 2012. Prior to me purchasing, it was never slept in, never used toilet, refrigerator, stove, microwave, or anything.
Here?s the details. The boat was purchased new by a gentleman that had a lakefront home in NC. That?s why the boat was never used other than for day trips. They just wanted a large boat for cruising comfort. The boat was kept at a covered slip with a lift, so the boat was never in the water, and not the sun unless being used. The original UPC stickers are still on the lower unit.
The engine was neglected and the boat sat several years. I bought the boat knowing it needed an engine and some other work, but the upholstery, all appliances, etc were basically new. The carpet and side curtains were still in their original wrappers and never opened. This includes the indoor (cabin) and the outside (deck) carpeting. It also has the factory Sunbrella bimini with full camper canvas. Factory Cockpit cover. Remote controlled spotlight. Full swim platform. Skeg guard on lower unit. Mercathode Corrosion Prevention System.
The boat has, with the flick of an either/or switch the ability to use shore power or inverter power. This allows you to use microwave, electrical outlets, air conditioner, etc out on the water. A Honda portable generator can run on the hood, swim platform, or shore (w/100? cord) to supply power during the day. At night, you can flick the switch to inverter power and run the a/c all night on battery power with the 6 batteries( listed below). A very nice, clever, and rare option/set-up installed. I also added a fresh water engine flush system (from the water tank)so if you leave the boat in the water you can flush the salt or brackish water out of the block and manifolds with the twist of one valve.

This boat is 28?2? overall with swim platform. It is beautiful (like new), and never out in weather. Pictures shown here in water were just taken 7-28-12 in the Chesapeake Bay. If you are looking for a ?new? used boat in 100% perfect shape and ready to go, this is your boat. It can be seen and test run for a serious buyer. Surveyors welcome. I have it priced fairly and am firm. It?s truly ?new? in many ways, most importantly the engine, drive train, and trailer. It needs nothing and is ready to go. New is $109.000.00. It is for sale because I purchased a larger cruiser with twins. That?s the only reason. This is truly ?turn key? and can be used for years and years with nothing to worry about. It?s absolutely perfect. Obviously, this boat can be towed anywhere as well. Reasonable delivery requests can be fulfilled if the buyer does not have a tow vehicle.

Click on the first picture and you should be able to toggle through all of them to see individually.
I am available to talk to as well. I am an ASE certified technician and did all the work 100% perfect and myself. This boat could sit directly back on the showroom floor. No matter where you live, if you want this size boat, and this is in your price range, you need to see this boat.
