Vintage Bros Boat Sales is excited to present this professionally restored 1968 Keaton Utility Ski. This boat is turn key an ready to be enjoyed. No expense was spared in it refurbishment.
In 1957 Jack Keaton formed Keaton Boats located in Sacramento, California. Into the 80's and 90s, Keaton Boats were known as a specialty builder of fine inboard ski boats as well as jet drive ski boats. The company lives on today as 'Classic Craft'. Part of their business is in the reproduction of Keaton boat parts to keep these wonderful boats on the water.
At Vintage Bros, we are antique and classic boat enthusiasts first and boat brokers second. We love putting buyers and sellers together and would love to own any of the boats we sell!
The fiberglass hull was preped, then painted in a beautiful silver-blue metal flake. It is stunning! No disappointments here! The original structure of the boat was repaired as needed to be sound and water- worthy.
A brand new, period correct white interior was installed. As you can see buy the pictures it delivers a WOW! factor. The gauges are clear and easy to read and the steering wheel looks new.
A brand new Mercruiser 300hp 5.7 Litre (350 ci) V-8 was installed making this boat perform like a rocket on the water! The trailer is a 2020, dual-axle, Yacht Club trailer that makes this boat a pleasure to tow with as well as to launch and retrieve.
This boat is a fantastic value. Considering the quality of the restoration, it would cost nearly twice as much to duplicate this restoration as to buy this boat for the list price.
