Default Looking for clean 24 foot Banana Boats without power for sale

The Banana factory is looking for clean used 24 foot models, of our Banana Boats with the Sport deck for sale.

We have customers who are looking to purchase one of our 24 footers.... and have the factory restore it to a new condition including a new deck if needed.

Anyone can contact us here on OSO, or on our Banana Boat Face Book page

Or through our Contact tab on the website www.bananaboatco.com

Thanks

Charlie

My own personal 24 foot outboard from 1978 has just been found.

Original owner, and original everything from upholstery to windshield to rub rail etc etc.

I used it as a boat show boat for the Providence 1978 Boat show and was happy when a nice guy saw it and bought it.

Had twin big Mercury Outboards and I used it in New England for travel between Newport and Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, Block Island and Montauk.

Sold it with brand new outboards, the latest Mercury had. Boat is staying in New England

Boat at Boat Show in 70's

Boat as found in a shop in Massachusetts.

These old boats stay alive and the classic lines never age.

When did you stop making them? I kind of recall seeing them advertised in the Salty Dog, new or nearly new.

We still make both new and restored. If customer wants new, we can make either sterndrive or outboard twins or a single, on a bracket or on the transom.

Haven't advertised in years we have good traffic from previous customers.

Put new decks on old boats and replace wood stringers and transoms with newer composite and new fuel tanks.

There was a tan one in the boat barn in Grand Haven Mi that Baronmarine on here keeps his trailer in. I had pics of it from last year but lost with phone. All tan hull and deck and looked to be all original gelcoat think it was a 77.

Yes, I remember seeing photos of that boat. I have no idea where it is now, but that would be a good one to get a hold of.

Here is another one that was recently all redone and the owner upgraded to a 350 HP outboard.

Welcome. If you need any help with offshore history or parts you have Saris Engines in Lake George.

Once you make 10 posts, you can then post photos. Let's see what you are dong with it. OB or Sterndrive?
