Available for Sale27428' 2005 Larson 

This is a 2005 model LARSON CABRIO 274 Mid-Cabin Express Cruiser. This exceptionally popular model was produced by LARSON BOATS of Pulaski, WI for the 2002 through 2011 model years . She's powered by a VOLVO-PENTA 5.7GI that's rated at 320 HP; this motor will propel her about a 39-knot "top end" and gives an economical cruise at about 26-knots with a 12.5 GPH fuel burn as well.

Clean and well-maintained and with only a modest 530 engine hours logged to date, she's a rare "One Owner" yacht that purchased her "new" locally back in 2005. The Owner has also kept good service records that will highlight the efforts made to maintain the yacht properly over the years. Recent major investments include all new exterior cushions and canvas in 2016 as well. The cooling & exhaust systems for the engines were overhauled in the '19-'20 timeframe as well.
