2003 Ski Nautique 196 Signature Edition

  • PCM 5.0L Pro Sport Engine
  • PCM 1.23:1 Transmission
  • Ram-Lin S/A Trailer
  • Boat Has Clean/Clear North Carolina Title


This 2003 Ski Nautique 196 came from Kelleys Island, Ohio.  It was a Christian camp boat before we acquired it.


The gelcoat has been wet sanded, buffed, and polished, and it looks excellent!  All factory decals and pinstripes are new and look great!  The interior has been completely replaced with factory-style skins with the correct logos.  The dashboard has been cleaned, and the gauges have been calibrated.  PerfectPass Stargazer 3-Event has been installed. The teak swim platform has also been refinished.  


This boat has a PCM 5.0L Pro Sport 275 HP engine, and we have gone through the engine to be sure it is running perfectly.


This vessel was purchased mid-restoration by a gentleman who will use the boat on Smith Lake in Alabama.  This boat will give him many years of enjoyment for sure!
