Different side treatment above the nose rail, would like to see photos of the boat without the cover on.

Yes, they even made a 17' Lancer. Again, how many of these have we seen for sale in the last 3 or 4 years? Not any??













From the brochure info, the 150-hp is probably coming from a V6. I figure the V8 would be a relatively easy motor swap on this boat? Talk about a rocket!

I'm diggin the galley package and cockpit dinette... a mini-Commander!?!?
Also, thanks to this info, I see how my aft bench seat turns into a big ol' sunlounge/bed! THANKS, PAUL!!!

Klokanuts.
Looking over the older postings, it seems as though this is a very rare model, never even saw one for sale. Anyone ever actually seen one?

Paul,

To answer your question when I was looing for a 23'inboard I ran across one in CT. It was in very poor shape and it was a red hull color. The owner was looking for any offer as the motor was bad and most of the interior pieces were rotted away.

I think I saw one on the Sweedish Lancer Club site. It could be easy to convert and would be like a Lyman Cruisette (one of my favorite boats). The galley would be easy to fabricate, the dinett less so I think.

Trade off for floor space and openess of the normal set up. In fact, one may find a parted out old wooden Chris and use the wood from there. Perhaps make it more narrow..such thoughts.

Hey Thibaud,

Good hearing from you guy. Funny you should mention this Lancer, it is the one in another post allready being discussed. Things happen fast around here, HA! This model you reference, however, is not the Overnighter model, it's a regular 23 but with a very irregular twin engine configuration (which I think would be a real blast, with great safety "get home" factor).

Here's the Overnighter model, note the galley and refrigerator added, wow, a floating bar! This could be the ideal boat for some of us?




Regards,

Paul

Growing up we had a 22 ft '74 Sea Ray. We had a family of 5 and we would spend two weeks crusing the Great Lakes in the boat; sleeping on board. We had one in the Vee Berth (hot, even in MI), two on the convertable seats, and the parents on the back "bed". The previous owner built a "box" across the back with storage on each side of the engine and cushions on top. The front would then swing up and legs would come down to make it a "queen" size bed.

We had a camper stove and water jug instead of a galley. Worked well. We had a camper top with stand up head room. Kind of like a pop up camper.

I would think of putting a sink and ice box with storage in a Lancer. Perhaps one more attractive then the Overnighter, less boxy.

First need a Lancer...
