like new 733 project?

This is for sale near me, and I am going to try to look at it soon.
He says it is in "excellent", "like new" condition.
The motors are shot.
He is asking $30K.
Seems a little high priced.

I have just found a single Yamaha 4 stroke 250, but have learned that the twin 150s that are on the boat are mounted directly to the transom.
I was under the impression that this drastically has a negative impact on performance, and that the extended OB bracket is a necessity.

Unfortunately, it is starting to look like if I can't get this boat for under 10K, it's probably not worth it.

sure its a 733? get the model off the plate. looks like a 753 or similar to me.

30K is steep! I would say 10-15max

no, not sure it is a 733, but it does say 733 on the CC.
If I go look at it, I will check.
I don't see this happening for me though, unless he drastically lowers the price.

We need more pictures. how the heck did they get the motors on the transom? the top of my transom is like 1' or more above the level of the bracket where my 30" OB mounts.

Sure looks like one of those 733's with the wrap around tubes. I've worked on a number of them with transom mounted outboards. Not as common as the ones on brackets but still plenty of them out there.

Isn't the performance compromised with the engines mounted directly to the transom?

Do they chop the transom down so the engines fit? Are they straight 733 hulls or did they some modification the the rear? I want to see more close ups, I'm curious.

Not all of them have tall transoms. There have been a few different 733 hulls over the years for the outboard and inboard versions. This also makes it tricky when ordering new tubes and other parts for them. I had a customer order the wrong tubes and we had to do a lot of work in order to get them to fit his boat.

I believe that the boats white the wrap around hull were specifically designed for the outboard to go direct onto the transom to keep the overall length down. If those were on brackets that tubes would have to be about four feet longer to clear the outboards.

What do you think Jason?

Inner brace on the transom?
