Default 2003 Maxum 1900 SR

I bought this boat new in 2003 and I still love it. Although I have only 81 hours on it, we have 20+ freshwater trips mostly to Lake Mohave and a few to Big Bear and Shasta. We tend to park in coves and beaches and use the boat as a floating ice chest hence the low hours.

Since it is paid off I am now ready to upgrade to a larger boat that we can sleep on. I wanted a larger boat back in 2003 but decided to wait. The waiting is over! I am hoping to find a 2400 SE or 2500 SCR. I am looking for advice on which one is better for me and I will create a post on it soon.

This Maxum was such an awesome and reliable boat! I am a Maxum owner for life. Below are a few pictures of the good times...

Welcome aboard

Either of the boats you mentioned are good options, you need to look at the layouts and see which better fits how you plan to use it.

How many people will be overnighting on the boat? if more than 2 on a regular basis you may want to consider a 2700. Also what features will you want A/C, generator, ... the smaller cruisers may not have these features.

Thank you for the welcome! I just created a post for the cruiser recommendations at:

Back from a fun trip to Lake Mohave. I had a stuck anti-siphon valve and changed the fuel filter out but otherwise it was a smooth trip.

I just finished the flush and it is time to sell it so I can spend time working on the 2400 SE!

Bitter sweet, hopefully the next owner enjoyers her just as much and now for the new love affair with the 2400.

Well judging from the pics you won't have to hard of a time selling it, I have a friend that would buy it right now if you lived closer. It's hard to find an older really clean boat like that around here.
