    Default My First Boat

    Hello enthusiasts. I have recently acquired my fist boat. I traded a couple guns and a few hours of tattoo work, so I'm not to far in the hole yet haha. The title says "1973 Spectrum Yachts", I believe it is 18' hull powered by Olds 455 and Berkley jet. I cannot find ANY similar looking boats online and was wondering if anyone had any helpful information for me to start with? At the moment all I have is this horrible cell phone picture. It is closed deck and the engine is also enclosed. I can find any tags/stickers/labels in the transom....any help appreciated.

    It might also be helpful to add that it is right hand drive with hand throttle

    GA Jet I did a little research and I wanna say it is an American Eagle or an off-shoot of the mold. The engine vents are on top instead of the sides and the very rear is more vertical vs. leaned inward like the Jolly Roger or Apollo. Definitely in the same boat family!

    It also has some differences on the front deck that I cannot find on any other pics. Almost like 2 hood scoops on a muscle car.
