The VT wakeboard club is auctioning our old club boat. Its a 2001 Malibu Sportster LX (yellow/white) with Boatmate trailer (yellow). Im not going to hide the fact that it needs some work. Main thing is that it needs a new engine. Upholstery is in fair condition, with some tears. Im no expert but it seems to me that the hull is in good condition structurally and the stringers too. It has a tower although one weld needs to be repaired (cracked). Put a few grand into this thing and you could have a 2001 boat for a steal. Id guess it wont go for more than a couple grand. If you have the time and will for a project boat, this could be a great buy.

If interested, here is some info.

The auction will take place at VT Surplus located at 1425 S Main (in Blacksburg), near Our Daily Bread and across from Kroger on THIS Saturday, July 31st. It is item number 384, and they guessed that it will be auctioned at around 11AM. Doors open at 8AM if you want to look at it on saturday, auction starts at 9AM. If you want to see it at another time, you can go to surplus and see it any time between 7:30AM and 4PM on Thursday

Here is the link to the auction information. Click the list on the right to see everything being auctioned, payment information, etc. http://www.purch.vt.edu/Surplus/auction.html

If you know anyone who may be interested, please let them know...we are really hoping to meet our reserve and get a little money out of this boat so we can look towards buying a new boat and pay for travel expenses/competitions this year.

From what I understand, since it is university property, we have to auction it using the university's auction.
