The Tahoe 215cc (center console) is a great all-around boat, for watersports, for fishing, and (with the maximum hp 225 Optimax) for blasting down the river at almost 60mph!

I bought this boat a year ago but a recent injury and age have made this just too much boat for me to handle now.
It is about 5,400 lbs fully fueled and on the trailer, which is more than I can manage. So, I'm downsizing.

The boat spent its life before I bought it in Lake Cumberland, and it is in great condition for its age.

The engine is what makes this boat so relatively rare. Most of these were made with the vastly under-powered 150hp Mercury. That 150hp boat, of this age, is currently selling for 18-22K, depending on condition, more if it's loaded.

The much larger 225hp Mercury Optimax engine adds another $2,500 to that price, IF you can find one (good luck), and in my opinion it's worth every penny. That makes my asking price, which is not negotiable, a bargain.

The pictures will tell you most of what you want to know. A screenshot of the computer diagnostic from when I bought it is attached. I added around 5 hours to that, so it's somewhere just under 700 hours now. These engines are known for going up to 5,000 hours with regular maintenance.

It is wired for a Lowrance GPS-Fishfinder but the actual unit needs to be replaced. I'm not sure if the transducer would work with any other brand.

In 2019, Tahoe renamed this model the 2150cc after changing the helm and a few accessories, and that boat new, with the largest (225hp) engine is currently selling for more than $70K.

You can find out a lot about this model by a quick Google search and watching some boattest videos (highly recommended).

The price is what I owe on it, so there's no need to offer any less. I simply can't sell it for less than the payoff.

JD Power values this boat at $21,850.
